Tyco Electronics has introduced the new SlimSeal solid state lighting (SSL) connector for indoor and outdoor lighting applications. The connector has been developed to meet customers’ needs for a sealed, low-profile, single-row LED connector for use in a variety of rugged lighting conditions. The connector maintains an IP67 seal rating, making it suitable for indoor and outdoor residential, commercial and architectural applications that are exposed to wet environments such as billboards, live event shows, street and tunnel lighting. Additionally, the connector can be used in traditional lighting fixtures and commercial refrigeration.
Key features include UV-resistant wire-to-wire and wire-to-board configurations, SMT and through-hole headers, positive integral latching and pre-assembled seals. The polarised, RoHS-compliant connector – available in two, three and four positions – accepts #18 through #24 AWG stranded wire. Housings are manufactured with UL 94 V0-rated high temperature-resistant thermoplastic.
Electrical performance characteristics include an operating current of 5 A, a maximum operating voltage of 250 V a.c./250 V d.c. and a 1500 V a.c. dielectric withstanding voltage rating.
