Molex Incorporated (Lisle, IL) recently announced that its new LED array holder will support Citizen Electronics’ recently introduced Chip on Board (COB) series of arrays: CLL010, CLL020, CLL030, CLL040 and CLL050. Molex currently offers LED array holders for the Citizen CLL-330 and CLL340 LED array products which provide unique compression contacts to power the arrays while eliminating the need for hand soldering or expensive surface mount technology (SMT) equipment. Ideal for light fixture or iginal equipment man ufacturers (OEMs), the holders reduce installation time and increase connectivity options while lowering costs. The solderless screwdown connection allows for a standardized manufacturing process, adding to the design flexibility of the Citizen COB series of LEDs.
The thermoplastic housing supports high heat-generating environments and the holders comply with UL 496 specifications.
