Pneumatic Probing Systems

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
