22-9159-100 Series | Coplanar/Linear – Top Load Socket

Features & Benefits
  • Slide open top: allows field reparability at the light fixture level
  • Mates with standard horizontal or cabled plug: no need to change any connectors
  • 5 Amp current rating: exceeds general market needs
  • Gold plated BeCu spring contacts: reliability for harsh environments
  • Available in white: supports SSL market preferences
Typical Applications
  • Coplanar PCB mating in SSL products
  • LED linear lighting strips

The 9159 series of Board-to-Board interconnect system allows two PCBs to be mated end-to-end creating strips of LED lighting. Designed specifically for the unique Solid State Lighting (SSL) market requiring coplanar (horizontal-to-horizontal) PCB mating with a 5 Amp current rating in the smallest package available. The top loading socket allows complete PCB’s to be replaced in the field without having to dissemble the entire strip of boards. The connector has a two part insulator whereby the top of the connector will slide open allowing the plug connector to be pulled out either vertically or at a slight angle. Once the PCB is replaced, the cover is slid back like a Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) connector to the closed position. The PCB layout is identical to the standard horizontal socket to maintain family commonality at the PCB level.
