GCT range of easy to use, surface mount wire trap connectors for lighting applications, includes 2.40mm and 4.00mm pitch options in one, two and three contact designs. You have a choice of PCB footprint size and power options to suit your lighting design.
To insert the wire, simply push stripped wire into the connectors*, a slider button allows easy extraction of wire for service or repair.
Natural LCP insulators make the connectors more discrete and less likely to reflect light in applications with LED and white PCB's.
BL300 on 2.4mm pitch accepts 24-20 AWG stranded wire, rated at 4Amps with 22 AWG wire. PCB footprint for a two contact version is a tiny 5.20mm x7.90mm, with a height of 3.60mm. The 4.00mm pitch BJ302 accepts 22-20 AWG stranded wire conductors or 24-18 AWG solid wire conductors. Current rating for BJ302 using 18 AWG cable is 8A. The PCB footprint for a two position connector is 7.45mm x 11.80mm with a height above the PCB of 4.50mm.
Drawings and product specifications include instructions for types of cable suitable for each connector, which cable types are suitable for one push* and a guide to wire preparation and stripping.
