FCI NQ SMT Wire-to-Board Spring Clamp System
The FCI NQ SMT Wire-to-Board Spring Clamp System extends the company’s terminal block portfolio with a solution that is ideal for LED devices and other compact applications.
FCI introduced the new NQ SMT Wire-to-Board Spring Clamp System as an extension of its terminal block portfolio. It includes a robust design, versatile modular system, secure electrical contacts, low wire insertion, and high wire-retention forces. Its user-friendly lever latch is engineered for effortless wire removal, while its compact industry-standard PCB design provides space savings.
With a low-profile 5.00mm height, the NQ SMT Spring Clamp is ideal for LED devices and other compact applications, such as LED lighting modules. It is also suitable for consumer electronics, factory automation equipment, and applications which require easy-to-use wire insertion and extraction methods. Two contact pitch sizes are available, 2.5mm with a current rating of 5A (150V), and 4.0mm with a current rating of 7A (300V). Both models are end-to-end stackable and feature one to 10 contact positions.
“The NQ series marks another significant step forward for FCI in the LED lighting application segment, especially where compact and cost-effective solutions are required in the market. In addition, our extensive manufacturing and distribution footprint also ensures the NQ SMT Spring Clamp is conveniently and widely available at a global level,” said Fabrizio Stango, director for commercial portfolio at FCI.
