These options, together with a choice of 1, 2 or 3 contacts, allow an efficient, compact and unobtrusive design. The natural LCP insulating material provides a discrete, aesthetic match to lighting strip PCB colours. Light absorption and shadowing is reduced, with minimal likelihood of light reflections where white PCBs are used. These connectors save time during installation, maintenance and repair, as stripped cables may be inserted and terminated direct to the contacts in one simple action. The cables can be removed with equal ease, and without need for special expertise, simply by pushing a slider button.
High-performance lighting configurations are facilitated with good connector current ratings; 8A per contact with 18 AWG solid cable on the BJ302 4mm product, and 4A per contact with 22 AWG solid cable on the BL300 2.4mm version. At -40°C to +105°C, the connector’s operating temperature ratings are also good. GCT’s wire trap connectors also simplify bills of materials, drawings and assembly procedures, as a single connector type is all that’s needed to cover every PCB-PCB and PCB-power supply connection.
