LED lighting module wire-to-board connector

May 09, 2017 //By Julien Happich
Designed as a user-friendly, wire-to-board connector for LED lighting module applications, Hirose's KN27 series was developed to replace traditional terminal blocks.

The design eliminates the need to screw down the connection and check for loosened terminal block screws, and offers a more reliable termination that reduces installation variation, time, and cost. The connector series features a rugged 2-point contact design that provides a reliable connection. It has an internal guide system that makes cable insertion simple and user-friendly. A push-lever provides for easy cable extraction.

The space-saving design measures 3.9x11.85mm and is only 4.2mm high. Although the KN27 series is compact it offers a high current rating of up to 9A and a voltage rating of AC 600V (1 contact); AC 320V (2 contact). It is available with 1 or 2 contacts and accepts 18 to 24AWG. The connector meets halogen-free requirements and is RoHS compliant.
