Molex Introduces its New Low-Profile Lite-Trap™ SMT Wire-to-Board Connector System

Molex Incorporated announces its new Lite-Trap™ SMT Wire-to-Board Connector System featuring an overall compact size that meets the needs of thin LED lighting-module applications. With a profile height of just 4.20mm, this push-button style connector provides one of the lowest profiles and wire insertion forces available on the market today compared to wire-removable type connectors.

“With dedication to innovation, Molex meets the needs of LED lighting manufacturers by designing a connector system that reduces component height on boards in order to achieve thinner designs and minimize shadowing or interference with the light source,” comments Goji Tanabe, product manager, Molex.

The termination method of the Lite-Trap Connector is similar to the established Molex Wire Trap Connectors, as well as certain ‘poke-in’ types, but requires a lower wire insertion force. A stripped wire is inserted into the connector and pushes open a dual-contact gate-style terminal design that ’traps’ the wire, providing a secure electrical contact and high wire-retention force. The Lite-Trap connector also features a user-friendly latch that is easy for operators to engage and disengage without the use of a tool. These features combine to offer easy field assembly and removal if needed, even for untrained technicians.

Other features of the Molex Lite-Trap Connector include a long wire insulation design that provides stable wire placement for additional contact assurance and an innovative wire stopper feature that facilitates correct wire insertion depth placement.
