Hirose has launched an easy-to-use, tool-less strip-and-poke connector ideal for LED lighting module applications. With a height of only 4.2 mm, the KN27 series offers a space-saving design of 3.9 mm width (for single contact) and 11.85 mm length, all using a standard industry footprint. In addition, the smaller KN27 series offers a higher current rating of up to 9 A.
The KN27 series connector was developed to replace traditional terminal blocks in LED lighting module applications. The strip-and-poke design eliminates the need to screw down the connection and check for loosened terminal block screws, which offers a more reliable termination that reduces installation variation, time, and cost.
The KN27 series LED lighting connector features a rugged, two-point contact design that provides a reliable connection. The connector has an internal guide system that makes cable insertion simple and foolproof. A lever provides for easy cable extraction. The KN27 series is offered in 1-pin or 2-pin models and accepts 18 AWG to 24 AWG. The connector meets halogen-free requirements and is RoHS compliant.
