Female headers are designed for LED applications 

To meet the needs of LED technology, Fischer Elektronik has introduced a female header with a small number of contacts. The plastic used for the insulating body is almost white. Black insulating bodies absorb a certain light-volume, explains Fishcher, which leads to shadow effects.

This female header is designed with a 2.54mm pitch and in through hole and surface mount designs. The natural colour white LCP-plastic can be used in a soldering process.

The single-row female headers have one to 36 contacts for the through hole version and one to 20 contacts for the surface mount option. The surface mount designs are also available in a machine-compatible assembly packaging.

Since 1968, Fischer Elektronik has been producing mechanical electronic components such as heatsinks, housings and connectors. The product range includes components and complete cooling systems for semiconductor heating as well as heat sinks directly from the manufacturer. In addition, the company offers various connectors for the PCB, as well as housings or aluminum housings in different designs. Fischer’s modern design housings include system-independent housings.

The range of standard items includes more than 75,000 individual items from the heat sink, aluminum body and connector ranges. This enables Fischer to cover almost every requirement in terms of size, number of poles and surface finish of a product. All heatsinks and other standard items are always kept in stock so that short delivery times are guaranteed. If required, Fischer can also produce individual solutions according to your specific requirements.
