Advertorial Outdoor LED lighting is a key consideration for Phoenix Contact has recognised the


importance of form and function in the design of our


solutions to suit the wide range of applications such as in electronic ballasts and LED drivers. The traditional screw


terminal block is commonly used and is available from Phoenix Contact in a number of variants along with more innovative connection methods including push-in, spring cage and IDC technologies. The technical challenge for the connector has much to do with form as with function. An LED light source requires a reliable power supply and in some cases data communication in order to function. Space is often at a premium and durability is needed to cope with the often harsh environments into which the finished products are expected to operate. The reliability of the device connection is of critical importance given the many more hours of operation expected compared with


filament solutions.


COMBICON HD range of device connectors. At just 5mm in height, the PTSM connector terminals are designed specifically for low profile applications where space is at a premium and up to 6A current capability is required. They feature spring cage plug-in technology with release button, strong mechanical bonding method with either solder anchors or double THR pins, supplied in tape-on-real for automatic mounting and suitable for SMT and THR soldering processes. The PTSM plugs and headers are available with up to 10 positions and offer options for vertical or horizontal PCB mounting.


For applications where ease of assembly is important, the PTQ two position terminal block features IDC conductor connection removing the need for cable pre-treatment. The PTQ features anti-rotation pins, secure locking mechanism, supplied in tape- on-real for automatic mounting and is suitable for the THR soldering process. The PTSM and PTQ compact range comprises a number of different variants to suite most applications. The PTS series with direct plug-in connection method removes the need for tools during wiring and therefore saves time during installation. This is especially important for


manufacturers and installers, where final assemble and field commissioning is an expensive overhead.
