Molex Inc. has rolled out the Lite-Trap SMT wire-to-board connector system flaunting a compact size that meets the needs of thin LED lighting-module applications. Featuring a profile height of 4.20mm, the push-button style connector claims to offer one of the lowest profiles and wire insertion forces available on the market compared to wire-removable type connectors, stated the company.

The termination method of the Lite-Trap connector is similar to the established Molex Wire Trap connectors, as well as certain 'poke-in' types, but requires a lower wire insertion force. A stripped wire is inserted into the connector and pushes open a dual-contact gate-style terminal design that 'traps' the wire, providing a secure electrical contact and high wire-retention force. The Lite-Trap connector also boasts a user-friendly latch that is easy for operators to engage and disengage without the use of a tool, Molex noted. These features combine to offer easy field assembly and removal if needed, even for untrained technicians.

Other features of the Molex Lite-Trap connector include a long wire insulation design that provides stable wire placement for additional contact assurance and an innovative wire stopper feature that facilitates correct wire insertion depth placement, the company added.
