Receptacles deliver flexibility in pcb test fixture design

December 15, 2017  Stephen Law

ECT Receptacles allow for rapid replacement of spring probes without disrupting wiring and provides fixture design flexibility. Devices meet both commercial and technical challenges. Pcb testing requires cost effective and reliable ICT and FT receptacle solutions that allow for the replacement of spring probes in fixtures without damaging the electrical connection to the test fixture. Replaceable probes are retained by receptacles permanently fixed into a retention plate to which electrical connection is made. Typical probe retention is achieved by detents in the receptacle or a threaded connection. Removal of the probe does not damage or break the electrical connection to the retention plate and receptacles.
