Molex’s Lite-Trap SMT Wire-to-Board Connector System meets the needs of thin LED lighting-module applications with a profile height of just 4.20 mm. This push-button style connector also features a low wire insertion force compared to wire-removable type connectors.
The termination method of the Lite-Trap connector is similar to the established Wire Trap connectors Molex has already introduced, as well as certain “poke-in” types, but 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.
The Lite-Trap connector also features a user-friendly latch that is easy for operators to engage and disengage without the use of a tool. These features combine to offer easy field assembly and removal if needed.
