Offering higher level of integration via a solderless connection to array and chip-on-board (COB) LEDs. These sockets mechanically secure and electrically connect the LED to a luminaire without the need to solder. Sockets allow the LED to be directly attached to a PCB or heat sink using a few standard screws. They have multi-point connection, accept optics, include fast attachment features and provide proper orientation.

TE is a participating member of the Zhaga Consortium, an industry-wide cooperation enabling the interchangeability of LED light sources and simplifying LED applications for general lighting. TE partners with the leading LED and optics manufacturers in the industry to bring you connectivity solutions for your specific choice of LED array. TE Connectivity provides a broad range of solderless LED holders that provide fixture  designers an easier way to integrate LEDs into their designs.  The scalable, Type Z and custom holder platforms each offer the designer a unique suite of features and benefits. Our LED holders form the core of the fixture ecosystem by ntegrating LED electrical, mechanical, thermal, and optical interconnectivity.  These holders can accelerate time to market, minimize applied costs, facilitate easy integration, and improve assembly efficiency when compared to traditional methods of LED integration.
