Lighting division lineup expanded with SMD terminal block connectors

New Yorker Electronics has added the RoHS-compliant Excel Cell Electronic (ECE) EBTL40 series of Terminal Block Connectors to its Lighting Division. The ETBL40 series features SMD terminals with low inserting force cage clamps, push wire-release buttons and a time-saving screwless design. The series was designed for easy handling with a compact design. It can connect to LED strip lights, making it ideal for use in LED lighting and industrial electronics.


There are versions with one, two and three poles, all with wire range capacities of 24 to 18AWG. They have a long wire insulation design and a stripping length of 7-8mm (0.28-0.31″). They can be used in applications requiring an easy-to-use wire insertion/extraction method.

Connections are exceptionally reliable, housed in fire-retardant plastic with a dual-contact, gate-style terminal design. The terminals are tin plated over nickel alloy and the springs are made of stainless steel. They are also UL approved and boast an insulation resistance of 50MΩ with a 500VDC and a dielectric strength of 2.5KVAC (min).

New Yorker Electronics is a franchise distributor of Excel Cell Electronic (ECE) and carries its full line of Dip and Micro Switches, Connectors, Terminal Blocks, Relays, Chip Inductors, Chip Beads and Resettable Fuses.
