New tool detects blocking in test probes

A new tool for the detection of blocked or tight plungers in the test probes used in automatic test systems has been introduced by Peak Test Services.

With the new Peak blocking tester, the correct functioning of the contact probes built into ATE test modules or fixtures can be tested very quickly and simply using minimal spring force.

The tester incorporates a Peak P201/G switch probe integrated with an LED display which illuminates if the plunger is stuck. The test height is adjustable by a threaded sleeve, and the spring force can be adjusted by changing the integrated probe. The maximum spring force is restricted to 6.0 N: a value which eliminates any potential damage to the connector element
