Wire-to-board connector replaces traditional terminal blocks

Designer and manufacturer of connector solutions, HIROSE, has launched a user-friendly, wire-to-board connector for LED lighting module applications. The KN27 series was developed to replace traditional terminal blocks in LED lighting module applications. The design eliminates the need to screw down the connection and check for loosened terminal block screws, and offers a more reliable termination that reduces installation variation, time, and cost.

The connector series features a rugged 2-point contact design that provides a reliable connection. The connector has an internal guide system that makes cable insertion simple and user-friendly. A push-lever provides for easy cable extraction.

The space-saving design features a height of 4.2x3.9x11.85mm (for single contact) all using a standard industry footprint.

Although the KN27 series is compact it offers a high current rating of up to 9A. It is available with 1 or 2 contacts and accepts 18-24AWG.

The connector meets halogen-free requirements and is RoHS compliant.

Key features:

  • Number of contacts: 1-2
  • Pitch: 0.4mm
  • Current rating: 9A
  • Voltage rating: AC 600V (1 contact); AC 320V (2 contact)
  • Mating cycles: 5
