The 9159 series of Board-to-Board interconnect system allows two PCB's 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. These single sided SMT connectors are perfect for both FR4 and metal boards where you need to butt the boards up together to minimize separation. Availably of both white and black insulation colors make them perfect for lighting as well as industrial applications. With sizes from 2p-6p, these high reliability connectors boast gold plated beryllium copper receptacle contacts for harsh environments.
