The Type CM solderless LED socket supports Cree’s XLamp MP-L multichip LED, offering users a simple termination while allowing ample optical clearance for un-lensed applications. For lensed applications, the socket incorporates a snap-on connect feature for the LEDIL Tyra series of reflectors, which offer directional optics in 18°, 30°, and 50° beam angles. It provides a rapid termination for the XLamp’s six 0.6 mm2 connection pads that are mounted on the top of the LED. The socket comes in two versions to suit wire or board applications and each version comes with or without attachment features for optics. A third version with an inverted connection option will soon be available. TYCO ELECTRONICS, Harrisburg, PA. (877) 623-4766.
