A Screwless Perfection That Works

The concept of the ‘Push-to-Fix’ element (P2F) does not only provide technical advantages over the screw, it is also quick and easier to use. The industry-wide positive feedback has pushed BJB to exhibit further versions at Light+Building.

The substantial benefits to the user are:

  • Elimination of the need for thread-cutting
  • The avoidance of shadow formation due to their considerably lower elevation above the circuit board compared to the screw head

A Proven Alternative

The P2F has proved to be a successful alternative to the traditional screw for fixing LED modules from the BJB | OEM-Line or from other manufacturers. Consisting of a metal spring and an elastic silicone ring, it provides the connection between the surfaces of the PCB and luminaire housing, with no bending. This ensures excellent heat dissipation – and important and decisive factor in determining the service life of LED luminaires.

The fixing element P2F Screw&Profile Groove has been developed specifically for fixing modules to aluminum profiles with screw grooves. Unlike traditional screws, the P2F element, which can be installed quickly and securely with the aid of a manual setting device, provides permanent, defined contact pressure.

The P2F element for blind holes represents an alternative to M3 screws as well, especially advantageous for fixing of low, mid-, or high-power LED modules to heat sinks with blind drill holes or thick aluminum profiles with blind holes. The P2F is installed effortlessly, without the worry of damage to the PCB due to screw tilting or excessive torque.

Additionally, the P2F SMD solderable is suitable fixing low-and mid-power LED boards to mounting plates. The fixing elements are fitted during the SMD process, soldered onto the PCBs while passing through the reflow oven, and thereby pre-attached. During the final installation, the pre-attached P2Fs are brought into their final positions by pressing down the spring clips. This can be performed manually or automatically.

NOTE: The portion of the P2F SMD solderable above the PCB is considerably lower than a screw head, thereby preventing shadow formation.

Innovation At Its Best

BJB’s P2F SMD solderable, P2F for blind holes and P2F Screw&Profile Groove represents the continued evolution and development to the innovative P2F product series. Specifically designed to meet the requirements for efficient series production of LED luminaires, BJB adds its historic knowledge base and technology to deliver the highest value to the industry…by providing P2F fixing elements as an ideal addition to the BJB | OEM-Line modular system.
