An integral stainless steel spring within the socket ensures that uniform and adequate normal force is applied to the LED for optimum thermal performance. The product simplifies the positioning of the Luxeon S LED on a heat sink by utilizing a locator, a plastic frame that is first placed on the heat sink to correctly orient the LED in its position prior to socket attachment.

Once positioned, only three commercially-available #4 or M3 screws are needed to rapidly secure the socket to the heat sink. Designed to maximize optical efficiency in un-lensed applications, the shape of the Type LS socket ensures that 98 percent of the light emitted from the LED is unobstructed.

Offered both with and without optics snap features, it provides flexibility for fixture designers by providing features for a secondary optic attachment. For optical flexibility, the matching Venla series of reflectors are offered by Ledil oy in a wide variety of beam angles and offer a simple snap-fit to the socket.
