A new fixing technology for optics brings additional time savings in luminaire assembly, says BJB.
Today it is often the fixing technology which decides how efficiently an LED luminaire can be produced. Just a few minutes are often enough to make a manufacturer more competitive. An example is BJB’s Push-to-Fix (P2F) range, which has just acquired a new member – the P2F model 28.905 for optics.
This enables LED modules and optics to be installed in a single operation, either manually or automatically, and completely without screws (though the geometry of the components means that option still exists).
With a combination of 3×11 optics and pre-mounted 28.905 fixing elements, for example, luminaire manufacturers can achieve significant time savings without any deterioration in the quality of the modules assembled in this way.
“Our solutions are designed to simplify manual assembly as well as the automated process,” say the developers at BJB. “Because the fixing elements are pre-mounted, the optic can be fixed to the circuit board and the mounting plate below it simply by pushing down the P2F elements.”
A contact pressure of 10 N/P2F is guaranteed with the P2F 28.905 fixing elements, an important factor for optimum thermal management. This pressure is permanently applied to the PCB to fix it securely to the mounting plate.
mounting plates of between 0.5 and 1.0 mm can be used to cover a range of applications. The LED boards should be between 1.0 and 1.6 mm thick. The resultant combined thicknesses of
