Hirose Electric's DF61 series connectors are well suited for linear SSL applications. The DF61 series connector is a 2.2 mm pitch with a low mated-height of 2.38 mm. It boasts a high current-capacity of 5 A and a high voltage rating of 350 VAC/DC. These features allow it to function continuously and make them a smart choice for LED light bulbs and LED tube fixtures. The vertically mated, “Swing Lock” connector has a header that is molded as one solid piece to help prevent solder wicking. The DF62 series is a slim, wire-to-wire connector that was designed with small or confined spaces in mind. With features including a multi-row pin layout, smooth outside contour, and no exposed metal on the outside of the housing, this series is an ideal choice for LED applications. The two-point crimp contact design delivers a reliable connection that is resistant to shock and vibration. The small size and high durability of the DF62 series connector makes it ideal for narrow or confined cabling needs.
