Distance between connector pin centrelines. For dual row products pitch defines distance between both pins and rows. Note 0.8 x 1.2mm (0.31” x .047”) is the exception to this rule.
Male headers with exposed pins and female sockets with insulated non-exposed contacts.
Termination method of soldering connector onto PCB.
Defines the orientation which a connector sits on the PCB. Vertical (straight) is 90° to the PCB, right angle (horizontal) is 180° to the PCB. Use the appropriate mating connector pairs for parallel, co-planar and right angle PCB mating configuration.
Number Of Rows
Defines PCB connector number of rows. GCT offer single in line (SIL), dual in line (DIL), triple in line (three rows) and quad in line (four rows) options.
Products which achieve a greater space between PCB’s, normally used in parallel PCB stacking applications to achieve a desired height. Elevated headers normally have two insulators, while elevated sockets use an insulator block and modular insulator extenders.
Plastic locating pegs to hold the connector in place during solder process and may provide extra strength post soldering. Also known as plastic post.
The profile of connectors above the PCB. Vertical connectors denote the stacking profile in parallel PCB applications, right angle connectors denotes height above the PCB.
Polarisation allows connectors to be plugged together in only the correct mating orientation. Achieved by a polarisation cutout or ‘key’ on PCB headers and raised polarisation bump on female connectors. Select both ‘key’ and ‘bump’ to view all polarised parts.
Standard board to board connector range is black, white insulators used for White Lite range for Solid State Lighting (SSL) applications.
Connectors for LED strip
BJ300 & 301 are 4.00mm pitch, two position board to board connectors for LED strip light applications.
LED strip applications are generally low cost in design, consisting of a small panels of LED lights clustered on a narrow PCB. These PCB's snap together in co-planar orientation. GCT lighting connectors fit perfectly with the application as they're economically priced and fit onto small and thin PCBs, mated connector height is 2.6mm, with a total mated footprint of 8.80mm (width) x 11.00mm (depth).
A dual contact design including a mating guide offers high reliability and protects terminals during mating and un-mating. In addition the connectors are polarised - they may only be plugged together in the correct orientation. Current rating is 3A per contact at 300V, operating temperature -55° to +105°C.
All 4.00mm header and socket connectors for LED strip applications are RoHS compliant
