Tyco Electronics has launched the IDC solid-state lighting connector for quick, tool-less termination of discrete wires onto LED printed circuit boards.

The product terminates 18 through 24 AWG solid and stranded wire, utilising insulation displacement technology to eliminate the labour-intensive task of pre-stripping wires and soldering.

The company said that the robust design of the IDC SSL connector suits harsh environments in the solid-state lighting industry.

Specific LED applications include lighting controls, general illumination fixtures and interconnection of strings in PCB light modules.

In addition, the product supports various non-lighting applications that require the attachment of discrete wire leads to PCBs.

The RoHS-compliant connector - available in one, two, three and four positions - meets UL 1177 specifications.

Product offerings include SMT/thru-hole and closed-end/feed-thru configurations.

The closed-end version contains a 'viewing' window to ensure that the wire is fully seated and secure after termination.

The product, built with 94 V0-rated high-temperature resistant thermoplastic, enables reflow processing and features rounded corners to minimise shadowing.

Wire gauges are colour coded to enable precise wiring.
