Lighting Connector Products

Global Connector Technology's range of lighting connector products for solid state lighting (SSL) applications, incudes board to board and wire push in connectors.

LED lighting applications are low cost in design, often consisting of a small panels of LED lights clustered on a narrow PCB which are connected together in co-planar orientation.

Lighting connectors are supplied in natural LCP, matching most LED strip lighting PCB colours. The LCP natural also reduces light absorption & shadowing.

With small footprints the lighting connector range allows printed circuit board mounting without losing the LED pitch between boards.

  • Family
    The family which the part belongs to: Board to Board or Wire Trap
  • Pitch
    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.
  • Gender
    Male headers with exposed pins and female sockets with insulated non-exposed contacts.
  • Mount Type
    Termination method of soldering connector onto PCB.
  • PCB Orientation
    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.
  • Socket Entry Type
    Searches female connectors only and displays whether header pins may enter from above (top entry), from below with appropriate holes in PCB (bottom entry) or from both above and below (dual entry). See drawings for details of PCB layouts required for bottom entry connector mating.
  • Socket Contact Type
    Socket contact type", "Searches female connectors only. Two contact types: ‘Leaf Spring’ and ‘Tuning Fork’, both offer two points of contact with mating header pins. ‘Tuning Fork’ is the lower cost option, with higher insertion and extraction force, suitable only for top entry applications. ‘Leaf Spring’ is lower force contact and suitable for top, bottom & dual entry applications. For higher number of mating cycles choose ‘Leaf Spring’.
  • Profile
    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.
    • 1.00mm to 1.99mm
    • 2.00mm to 2.99mm
    • 3.00mm to 3.99mm
    • 4.00mm to 4.99mm
    • Over 5.00mm1
  • Insulator Colour
    Standard board to board connector range is black, white insulators used for White Lite range for Solid State Lighting (SSL) applications.
