Open-ended card edge connectors
By Alison Dunn
AVX Corporation has introduced a new open-ended card edge connector designed to provide lighting engineers with a miniature, cost-effective, and high-density pin-count solution for use in linear LED strip lighting. AVX’s new 00-9159 Series connectors feature a double-sided configuration for increased pin-count density, a central keying rib for strength and alignment, and a tin-to-tin contact interface for financial economy. Measuring 1mm in length per number of contacts, the 00-9159 Series is available with 4, 6, 8, or 10 contact positions and has a voltage rating of 300VAC. In addition to linear LED strip lighting, 00-9159 Series open-ended card edge connectors are also recommended for use in both commercial and industrial coplanar and extended card applications.
