Molex Incorporated has introduced the Flexi-Mate Connector System for LED lighting applications. Designed to address the lighting needs of luminaire manufacturers, particularly luminaires intended for the office environment, the Molex Flexi-Mate Connector System provides a full range of both board-to-board and wire-to-board connectivity.

“The industry trend towards the use of LEDs in office lighting is driving demand for next-generation low profile and compact connector innovations. The Flexi-Mate Connector System offers luminaire manufacturers a total complement of configurations for optimal system reliability, ease of assembly and design flexibility,” states Matthijs Peters, European Industry Manager Lighting, Molex. 

Currently available in a standard two-circuit design, the Flexi-Mate Connector System's key features include a dual-contact terminal design for secure electrical contact and robust, space-saving positive side locks for wire-to-board connectors.  A mating guide on PCB versions facilitates smooth mating and protects terminals during mating and unmating. The Flexi-Mate System is available in low halogen and non-low-halogen material to meet various environmental and market requirements. 

Molex offers luminaire manufacturers and their suppliers a wide range of innovative products and extensive research and development capabilities, including rapid prototyping and high volume production support.
