Molex Inc. has rolled LED array holders to support Citizen Electronics' Chip on Board (COB) new series of LED arrays: CLL010, CLL020, CLL030, CLL040 and CLL050.

The LED array holders feature compression contacts to power the arrays while eliminating the need for hand soldering or expensive SMT equipment. The holders are said to reduce installation time and increase connectivity options while lowering costs of light fixtures for including downlighting, architectural lighting and area lighting. The solderless screw-down connection gives OEMs a standardized manufacturing process, adding to the design flexibility of the Citizen COB series of LEDs.

The LED holder's thermoplastic housing supports high heat-generating environments and the holders comply with UL 496 specifications.

Molex LED array holders are available through Molex franchised distributors. The company anticipates parts will be available for both samples and high volume sales in 2Q12.
