HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Jan. 6, 2009 -- The Star Board LED Pixel Holder from Tyco Electronics makes it fast and easy to integrate high-intensity LED packages into fixtures. The holder simplifies application by addressing electrical, thermal and mechanical needs in a single solution - without solder and without the complexity of engineering separate thermal, electrical, and mechanical subsystems. Consisting of a cast aluminum heat sink, plastic locking ring and contact carrier, and tin-plated copper alloy contacts, the holder is available with a two-wire connection for single-color LEDs and four-wire connection for RGB LEDs. The heat sink fits standard GU10/MR16 light fixtures for easy integration into higher-level assemblies for office, residential, or architectural lighting.
The holder accepts LED board thicknesses from 1.0 to 2.5 mm thick, with easy replacement after installation.
The LED Pixel Holder works with LEDs rated up to 3 watts without forced air cooling. For higher LED power ratings, forced air cooling or additional heat sinking may be necessary. The assembly is rated for operating currents up to 2.5 A and voltages to 50 VDC. With an operating temperature range from -40°C to 120°C, the Pixel Holder is suited for both indoor and outdoor applications. The electrical interface is standard 110 FASTON quick-disconnect tabs, which allows simple plug-in compatibility with Class 2 wiring.
Options include a thermally conductive pad, snap-on diffuser lens, and integrated LED driver.
