Tyco Offers SMT Assembly For Solid-State Lighting

Tyco Electronics has announced an RoHS-compliant G13-style SMT assembly and end-cap cover for the solid-state-lighting (SSL) industry. The product supports printed circuit boards (PCBs) and LED strip-lighting modules found in the standard T8 and T12 fluorescent LED retrofit tubes. The integrated assembly enables high-volume manufacturing of fluorescent LED retrofit tubes by allowing a quick SMT electrical connection to the PCB and a standard pin interface to fixture lamp socket (tombstone) connectors.

The product, tape-and-reel packaged to facilitate high-speed processing, is compatible with FR4 and aluminium-clad PCBs. Designed-in features include a surface-mount hold down to provide additional stability of the connector during insertion and/or extraction of the LED tube. The SMT housing material consists of UL 94 V0-rated high-temperature-resistant thermoplastic for reflow processing on automated equipment.

The end-cap cover interfaces with the connector assembly, heat sink and tube, and is packaged separately for ease of assembly. Performance characteristics include: 2A current rating, 250V DC/250V AC voltage rating, 1,500V AC dielectric withstanding voltage and a 0.5in pin centreline spacing per G13 specification. Operating temperature ranges from -40 to 120C. The product is ETL recognised to UL 8750 and UL 1993 standards.
