inverted thru board interconnects

Turn your power delivery upside down.

Our unique inverted thru board interconnects enable power delivery from the underside of your PC Boards and LED arrays, eliminating top-surface wire management issues. These lighting connectors are an ideal solution for low profile applications commonly required in solid state lighting LED modules.

Features & Benefits

  • An inverted thru board (ITB) design approach reduces profile on the LED light emitting surface for a good lighting effect
  • ITB headers enable power delivery from the underside of the PCB and LED arrays, eliminating top surface wire management issues
  • BUCHANAN WireMate ITB connectors offer a separable interface enabling rework or repair

Turn your power delivery upside down. Our unique headers enable power delivery from the underside of your PC Boards and LED arrays eliminating topsurface wire management issues. Leveraging existing TE connector product families, our inverted headers take advantage of proven TE connector systems. These inverted thru board connectors are an ideal solution for low profile applications commonly required in solid state lighting LED modules and non-lighting related printed circuit boards.
