ensuring a high level of quality. Handling benefits and time savings are especially important during the installation process. The use of SMD components frees up the rear of the PCB, which can then be used for attaching further components. In the best-case scenario, device manufacturers have twice the space available on their PCB – or they benefit from a circuit board that is only half the size so, ultimately, the complete device
can be designed in a more compact fashion.
Other aspects include the assembly of different materials such as glass, ceramics or aluminium, which is influential in the development of LED illumination devices. This often involves the installation of aluminium heat sinks, which provides no possibility for drilled holes. In such cases, SMD technology is the ideal solution for attaching the necessary connection components.
we rely on a unique range of products. The LSF-SMD family expands our flexible product line of LSF-SMT components, which are suitable for reflow soldering, by meeting all of the requirements of fully automatic PCB surface mounting for three main grid dimensions and three conductor exit versions. In combination with its ubiquitous “PUSH IN” connection system, we are able to satisfy the demand for high efficiency – from circuit board assembly to the installation of ready-to-use devices.
SMD soldering applications mainly range from industrial and building automation, over LED lighting, to infrastructure in the telecommunications sector. Read our application stories to find out more about how LSF-SMD PCB terminals from Weidmüller cut an impressive figure in practical use:
A large number of channels on the smallest PCB space characterises the compact design of the CPX-L I/O modules from Festo. But what lies behind this impressive feature? The “PUSH IN” LSF-SMD PCB terminals!

The benefits of the “PUSH IN” LSF-SMD PCB terminals score highly for the customer-specific stainless steel keyboards from lighting expert Abaled, which are used to control the RGB LED lighting.
