Pneumatic test probes provide an alternative to the use of conventional spring contact test probes to solve some problems in test fixture design.
The main advantages of this system are:
- There is no need for a moving probe plate or push plate
- The probes are held away from the test item until contact is required. This avoids damage/wear and tear of the probe tips. When the compressed air is switched on the probe tips move into contact with the test pad
- The ability to program sequential tests using a programmer and electric valves to operate different probes at set times in the test programme
