Open-Ended Card Edge Connectors Solve LED Strip Lighting Needs

AVX's new 00-9159 Series connectors provide a miniature, cost-effective, and high density pin-count solution for use in linear LED strip lighting.

An open-ended card edge connector from AVX Corp. is designed to provide lighting engineers with a miniature, cost-effective, and high density pin-count solution for use in linear LED strip lighting.  Designed without plastic end-walls to minimize length, AVX's new 00-9159 Series connectors feature a double-sided configuration for increased pin-count density, a central keying rib for strength and alignment, and a tin-to-tin contact interface for financial economy. Measuring a mere 1mm in length per number of contacts, the 00-9159 Series is available with 4, 6, 8, or 10 contact positions and has a voltage rating of 300VAC.

With contacts on both the top and bottom of the PCB, AVX's 00-9159 Series connectors provide a high pin-count density in a small footprint, as well as enable enhanced flexibility when mixing and matching power and signal lines.  The series also features a center keying rib, which ensures both proper mating alignment and functional PCB location, and high current capabilities.  The 4- and 6-position connectors are rated for 3A and the 8- and 10-position connectors are rated for 2.5A.

Supporting standard 1.6mm PCB thicknesses, AVX's new 00-9159 Series connectors are rated for use in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +125°C and featuring a durability rating of five cycles.  In addition to linear LED strip lighting, 00-9159 Series open-ended card edge connectors are also ideal for use in both commercial and industrial coplanar and extended card applications.
