ECT Launches Probes for Board, Module and Final Assembly Testing


Reading time ( words)

In board, module and final assembly test, customers nowadays face a wide range of spring probe parameter requirements including overall length, tip geometry, force, size and mounting options. 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 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.

Many of ECT's general purpose probes are designed for rugged operating environments, such as high temperature and high current applications. 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."
