Molex’s Flexi-Mate™ connectors are designed for LED TVs and standard room-lighting applications requiring the placement of LEDs on interconnecting panels across the full width of the display or lighting fixture.
Molex’s Flexi-Mate design meets the need for flexibility and space savings and includes coplanar board-to-board connectors used to snap together small panels containing LED lights. The system includes a wire-to-board option to connect the LED boards to the main power board; a terminating connector is available and is used as a shorting device to complete an open-loop signal.
Key features of the 3.00mm (.118”) mated height Flexi-Mate family include a dual-contact terminal design for secure electrical contact, space-saving positive side locks for wire-to-board connections, and mating guide features that help facilitate mating and protect terminals during mating and unmating.
Currently, the system is available in a two-circuit, 26-28 AWG design. In addition, pre-assembled 24 AWG cable harnesses, certified to IEC60838-2-2, are available. Further components, such as a wire-to-board adapter that allows a signal line to be carried from one LED panel module grouping to another, are in the planning stages to add even greater flexibility to the system.
