Enables LED integration by simplifying the development and manufacturing of LED lighting products

TE Connectivity (Darmstadt, Germany) is announcing the release of the LED Holder, Type Z50. The LED holder forms the core electrical, mechanical, thermal, and optical interconnectivity for Philips Lumileds LUXEON K LED and Sharp Electronics MEGA ZENIGATA LED. The Type Z50 holder enables designers to develop ZHAGA compliant modules around a common core. The LED holders are available with either optics attachment features or in a low profile form factor. The low profile Type Z50 holder stands only 3mm tall with a 45mm diameter making it ideal for omni-directional applications. The Type Z50 holder’s mechanical construction provides reliable down force and electrical connection over a wide range of operating temperatures. Features include:

  • 50mm diameter Type Z50 holder with optics attachment.
  • Integrated poke-in electrical connections.
  • Two footprint compatible holders secured to the heat sink.
  • Snap-in LED retention that makes handling LEDs easier and faster to install into fixtures.
