POWAY, Calif., 9 April 2014. VCC, a provider of indication and specialty illumination solutions, has developed solderless, panel-mount LED holders that combine simple and fast assembly with reliability and ruggedness. The CNX 440 and CNX 460 Series receptacles require no tools for assembly, offering quick and easy threaded connections into a broad selection of panel lenses.
The CNX 440 Series 5mm LED holder can be configured to support up to six leaded, RGB, undercover (UC), or infrared (IR) LEDs. While the CNX 460 10mm LED holder can be configured for high flux and standard 10mm LED packages. These receptacles work with all major LED brands and offer a solderless solution for connecting wire leads to an LED.
The CMC 441 and HMC 461 lens style with Fresnel ring for increased brightness is recommended for standard applications, while the CMS 442 and HMS 462 lens style is used for NEMA 4 applications requiring moisture-proof performance.
The HMC 460 and HMS 462 lens Series indicators fit a 0.5625 inch (14.29mm) diameter mounting hole, while the CMC 441 and CMS 442 fit a 0.300 inch (7.62mm) diameter mounting hole. Assembly is quick and simple; slip lens through panel opening, slide lock washer over lens barrel, connector secures to lens with a half of a turn.
To simplify assembly, the CNX 440 and CNX 460 Series LED holders feature unique interconnectors that provide additional stability for LED leads and offer various options, standard lead lengths and headers for quickly and securely connecting LEDs to power sources. The receptacle can be easily configured for integration into a custom cable assembly or standalone assembly with stripped wire ends or header connector for PCB connection.
VCC modular, panel-mount indicator assemblies resolve LED push back issues, eliminate the need for soldering or crimping wires to fragile LED leads and deliver superior stability when subjected to forces of 2Gs, 4Gs, and 6Gs from 0 to 2000Hz.
