JST Low-Profile LEK Series
The JST low-profile LEK series of LED connectors provides reliable contact even in high-vibration conditions.
JST Corporation‘s new LEK Series connectors provide a space-saving and low-profile connection for LED lighting and reliable contact construction for high-density applications. Any misalignment of the horizontal connections between the PCBs is absorbed by the LEK plug and receptacle. The spring contact in the receptacle is designed with a hook that provides a secure locking system. This positive-locking feature ensures high retention force while providing ease of assembly. The LEK Series connectors are especially suited to high-density LED devices that may be subjected to harsh handling or vibration.
Rated at 3A (AC/DC), the PCB SMT-mounted plug and receptacle contacts are available in side-entry configuration. The LEK Series has an operating temperature of -55°C to +85°C including temperature rise when applying an electrical current. The PCB-mounted contacts are made of tin-plated copper alloy.
SMT headers are provided on embossed tape for automatic insertion equipment.
