TE Connectivity – Zhaga-compatible LED holder provides for easy assembly

The LUMAWISE LED holder Type Z35 from TE Connectivity (TE) is suitable for two standard sizes of board supplied by LED manufacturers, the 13.5mm x 13.5mm type and the 12mm x 15mm type.

This new LED holder provides a solderless connection to Chip-On-Board (COB) LEDs, using standard pan-head and countersunk screws. The Type Z35 LED holder also enables quick and easy assembly, offering tape-in LED retention and easy attachment of secondary optics. Integrated poke- in wire terminations are also simple to install.

The device is aimed at helping lighting equipment manufacturers to conform to the specifications of the Zhaga book 11 standard. The plastic housing material offers high reflectivity, and is halogen- and red phosphorus-free.
