This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

Hirose KN27 LED Lighting Module Connectors

LED modules are fairly simple devices, but are expected to operate reliably over long periods of time. One of the most common points of failure is at the connector, itself, because either the wire wasn’t properly inserted to begin with or it comes loose over time.

Hirose KN27 LED lighting module connectors are designed to provide high contact reliability. Hirose KN27 connectors use a guide structure that ensures the wire is properly inserted to the terminal. The connectors also use a dual-contact design to prevent the connectors from dislodging due to handling or vibration after installation. KN27 connectors are surface mount and available in single and dual position configurations.
