ECT General Purpose Probes for Board, Module and Final Assembly Testing


Reading time ( words)

Everett Charles Technologies (ECT) offers a comprehensive portfolio of off-the-shelf probes for board, module and final assembly test, which are available at short lead times. For applications, in which ECT’s vast selection of off-the-shelf probes doesn’t meet the requirements of the specific application, ECT’s in-house design and manufacturing resources will develop the solution that addresses the dedicated needs.

In board, module and final assembly test, customers face a wide range of spring probe parameter requirements including overall length, tip geometry, force, size and mounting options. The combination of a comprehensive off-the-shelf portfolio with in-house design and manufacturing for dedicated applications makes ECT the leading solutions supplier. 

Many of ECT’s general purpose probes are designed for rugged operating environments such as high temperature and high current resulting in industry proven durability and reliability even in the most challenging environmental conductions. Many ECT general purpose probes feature a full diameter bias ball that provides an uncompromised bias for stable performance at any compression. Because of this feature ECT general purpose probes are an ideal choice for high current and high temp applications such as burn-in, or for use in high shock and vibration environments.

General purpose probes include the industry proven Pylon line as well as EPA/SPA/HPA probes and the A-S, C-S, E-S, F-S and G-S line of probes.

Tony DeRosa, senior product manager explains: “Our extensive experience and knowledge of materials, platings, bias techniques and manufacturing processes are focused at making the industry’s most durable and reliable spring probes. Our large off-the-shelf selection means short lead times for most products.”

PCB Repair: Thoughtful Best Practices

12/31/2019 | Barry Matties, I-Connect007
Barry Matties recently spoke with Curtis Smith of Huntron about the critical factors that somebody needs to understand about the plant maintenance regarding the PCB repair process. The PCB repair process is not just a matter of just getting the equipment anymore but finding the right people with a troubleshooting mindset that can do it. A failed PCB can bring down an entire manufacturing line, and companies need to be able to repair the board and keep their manufacturing going.
