Designed for loaded board 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.

|Letter||Description - no options are required.|
|N||No probe lubrication. Removing probe lubrication greatly reduces cycle life and should only be used in applications requiring operating temperatures below -55°C.|
|Heat-treated steel with gold over nickel plating. For availability, look for the steel logo near tip images.|
1Current Rating is affected by spring material and lubrication choices. Standard lubrication has a 120°C maximum operating temperature limit. Use SS springs with no lubrication (-N) for testing beyond standard lubrication temperatures limits up to 204°C, Before using probes near these current limits, please refer to Current Carrying Capacity and Operating Temperature Application Notes.
