About BJB:

Founded in 1867 by Friedrich Wilhelm Brokelmann, Franz Jager and Gustav Busse, BJB has been associated with lighting technology for more than 150 years. Initially the business began by manufacturing components for oil lamps. Since the beginning of the 20th century, BJB has been providing the electrical connection between the power source and the lamp. Equipped with this knowledge, the company continuously developed user-friendly lampholder systems, terminal blocks and switches up to the present day for markets throughout the world.

In other words: BJB provides a “Connection to Light”. The process that these “connections” are installed and the progress which can be achieved in light fitting assembly is the objective of a further area of operation: ADS automation. Here we develop, build and supply customer-specific systems for the automation of light fitting production. A third important element is our lighting solutions for domestic appliances, as a dominant player in the industry. Visit us at BjB.com! We are "Technology for Light".

Easy handling:

  • Due to the B2B-Connectors, LED modules can be aligned very simply: connect the B2B-Connector first into the SMD Terminal block of the first module and then axially into the opposite SMD Terminal block of the following module
  • Protection against polarity reversal

No additional wiring effort in the luminaire:

  • No disturbing cables in the light cone
  • Cable pre-assembly for manual wiring is no longer necessary

BJB continues to lead the way with our SMD Terminal blocks that are used for current supply in LED boards for a diverse number of lighting applications. Our connectors are easy to handle and provide permanently safe connections. Due to their flat construction, they contribute decisively to a superior light quality and avoid disruptive shadows. With the SMD Terminal blocks, BJB offers a wide range of products that contribute to superior lighting solutions.

Mouser Electronics, Inc. announces a global distribution agreement with BJB, a lighting technology company that supplies innovative solutions to the lighting and domestic appliance industries worldwide. Through the agreement, the BJB product line at Mouser will include BJB’s SMD terminal blocks, COB connectors and reflectors, and Starboard holders and connectors.

BJB’s SMD terminal blocks enable easy implementation of individual luminaire designs. Intended for use with both solid and flexible conductors, the surface-mounted terminal blocks are available in single- or double-pole configurations in Mini, Mini-Flex, Nano, and Push-through models. The blocks are made from a glass-fiber filled Polyphthalamide (PPA-GF) based compound, offering improved durability and performance compared to traditional engineering thermoplastics. 

COB connectors and reflectors from BJB offer easy and durable installation of chip-on-board (COB) LED modules. Designed for a wide range of COB modules, the high-strength components feature push wire technology, blue-light-resistant plastics, and corrosion- and wear-resistant contact materials. Wire entry on one or both sides of the connectors, embedded contacts with silver-plated contact points, and pre-assembly fixing springs facilitate automated assembly processes. BJB Electric's extensive range of reflector and optics accessories enable luminaire manufacturers to quickly and easily assemble finished modules for spot and downlights.

BJB starboard holders and connectors enable easy implementation of starboard-based LED displays. Designed to be solder-free, these components ensure that there is no lifespan reduction due to thermal impact on the LEDs. Single push-wire terminals accept both solid and flexible conductors, and the holders also feature top test ports for final testing after assembly. Compatible with a wide range of LED starboards from leading LED manufacturers, the holders and connectors allow for flexibility, rapid prototyping, and simplified installation.
