Easy-to-use removable jumper links from Harwin cut the cost of LED array assembly, simplify rework, and cut production time

Harwin presents an easy means of connecting LED arrays together, simply and effectively removing any need for post-assembly soldering operations, and facilitating rework both in the factory and in the field.

Part of the EZ-BoardWare range, the new EZ-Removable Jumper Link system comprises surface-mount clips and removable linking bars. The complete system provides secure retention for the linking bars, while allowing them to be speedily removed and replaced if a failed LED array or panel requires replacement. The clips are available in both vertical and horizontal orientations.

These products allow users to further automate the processes involved in manufacturing and assembling multiple LED arrays, eliminating manual soldering and/or the use of more costly conventional connectors. The novel design allows for the removal of an individual array if it fails without disturbing adjacent PCBs, facilitating easy and quick serviceability and repair.

EZ-Removable Jumper Links occupy minimal board space. They can carry up to 1.5 A making them ideal as a cost-effective PCB connection system.
