Designed for loaded board and high current testing.
QA Technology offers many combinations of probes. You can build your probe by selecting the tube style, tip style and spring force for your specific application.

1Current Rating is affected by spring material and lubrication choice. MW springs and lubrication both have a 120°C operating temperature limit. Use SS springs with no lubrication (-N) for testing up to 204°C. Before using probes near these limits, please refer to Current Carrying Capacity and Operating Temperature Application Notes.
2Maximum plunger OD should be used to calculate minimum guide plate clearance holes.
