Molex has debuted the Lite-Trap SMT wire-to-board connector system intended for thin LED lighting-module applications. With a profile height of just 4.20mm, the push-button style connector claims to provide one of the lowest profile and wire insertion force 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 Wire Trap connectors Molex introduced, 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 features a user-friendly latch that is easy for operators to engage and disengage without the use of a tool, added Molex. A wire stopper feature facilitates correct wire insertion depth placement, the company indicated.
