TE Connectivity (TE) has introduced a new addition to its line of Lumawise LED holders. The new, high-performance Z50 28×28 LED holder enables the electrical, thermal, mechanical and optical connectivity of chip on board (COB) LEDs in a fixture with a solderless connection. The LED holder provides quick and easy solderless connection to support various LED brands on one platform.
TE’s Lumawise LED holders can accelerate time to market for luminaire manufacturers, allow for minimized applied costs, facilitate easy integration and improve assembly efficiency.
