... BHT Connector, Connectors designed for connecting LCD display backlight lamps to their starters (with good creepage distance on the output line) ...
... frequency flashover voltage (KV), Minimum bending failing load (KH), Minimum nominal creepage distance (mm), Number of shed of insulator (PCS), Main dimensions (mm ...
The creep distance and the connector cross sections allow high-power switching (up to 2500 VA). The board can be mounted on a standard DIN-rail and can be cascaded in 16, 24 and 23 relays.
