Heilind Now Stocking the Lite-Trap SMT Wire-to-Board Connector System from Molex

WILMINGTON, Mass., Sept. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Heilind Electronics, the largest distributor of interconnect products in North America, is now stocking the Lite-Trap™ SMT Wire-to-Board Connector System manufactured by Molex Incorporated.

The new Lite-Trap™ SMT Wire-to-Board Connector System is compact in size, which meets the needs of thin LED lighting-module applications. It is a push-button style connector that has a profile height of 4.20 mm, providing one of the lowest profile and wire insertion forces available today compared to wire-removable-type connectors.

The termination method of the Lite-Trap connector is similar to the Wire Trap connectors introduced by Molex and certain 'poke-in' types, but it requires a lower wire insertion force. A stripped wire is inserted into the connector and pushes open a dual-contact gate-style terminal design that "traps" the wire, providing a secure electrical contact and high wire-retention force. Lite-Trap connectors also feature a user-friendly latch that is easy for operators to engage and disengage without the use of a tool. These features offer easy field assembly and removal if needed. 

Other features of the Lite-Trap connector include a long wire insulation design that provides stable wire placement for additional contact assurance and a wire stopper that facilitates correct wire insertion depth placement.
