Solderless LED Socket Supports Philips Lumileds

Solderless LED Socket Supports Philips Lumileds

The Type LS solderless LED socket houses the latest Lumileds LUXEON S LED from Philips. The socket employs insulation displacement technology to allow for quick and easy termination of 24 AWG wires to the socket.  An integral stainless steel spring within the socket ensures that uniform and adequate normal force is applied to the LED for optimum thermal performance. Additionally, the product simplifies the positioning of the Luxeon S LED on a heat sink by utilizing a locator, a plastic frame that is first placed on the heat sink to correctly orient the LED in its position prior to socket attachment. Once positioned, only three commercially-available #4 or M3 screws rapidly secure the socket to the heat sink. TYCO ELECTRONICS, Harrisburg, PA. (800) 522-6752.
