Solid State Lighting Connector Contacts

This Product Selection Guide contains information to help select products in the Solid State Lighting Connector Contacts category on

Products in the solid state lighting connector contact family are interconnect products designed for use in LED-based illumination applications, which are characterized by a need for wire-to-board and board-to-board interconnects having low product and assembly costs, low mating cycle lives, and current carrying capacities of a few amperes or less. The convention of a “contact” referencing a wire-applied component that is subsequently inserted into a “housing” has not been well maintained in this context, resulting in similar products also being catalogued as solid state lighting connectors.


Style: Indicates the general connection type/method being used.

Connector Type: Indicates the style and configuration of the device.

Number of Positions: Indicates the number of distinct conductors presented at a connector’s mating interface and the number of electrical contact points present within a connector.

Mounting Type: Indicates how the device is attached.

Termination: Selection of termination style used to connect the device to a system, such as crimp, screw, or solder.

Pitch: Indicates the center-to-center spacing between adjacent pins.

Wire Gauge: The wire size or size range with which a product is designed for use, typically expressed in terms of American Wire Gauge.

Features: These are different capabilities or properties of the device such as a cover.

Contact Finish: Indicates the finish/plating material applied to the contacts.

Contact Material: Indicates the material composition of the contacts.

Fastening Type: The mating retention mechanism employed by the device.

Housing Color: The dominant color of the housing of the device.

Housing Material: Indicates the material composition of the housing of the device.

Operating Temperature: Recommended operating temperature, typically given in a range or as a maximum. Exceeding these temperatures may affect performance or damage the device and other system components.
