Hirose's tool-less strip & poke KN27 connector KN27 Series is aimed at LED lighting module applications. With a height of only 4.2mm, the KN27 Series combines a space saving design measuring only 3.9mm (for a single contact) by 11.85mm, all using a standard industry footprint. In addition, the smaller KN27 Series offers a higher current rating of up to 9A.

The KN27 Series connector was developed to replace traditional terminal blocks in LED lighting module applications. The strip & poke design eliminates the need to screw down the connection and check for loosened terminal block screws, which offers a more reliable termination that reduces installation variation, time, and cost. The new connector features a rugged 2-point contact design that provides a reliable connection and has an internal guide system that makes cable insertion simple and fool-proof. A lever provides for easy cable extraction.
The KN27 Series is offered in 1-pin or 2-pin models, and accepts 18 to 24 AWG. The connector meets halogen-free requirements and is RoHS compliant.
