Tester Electrical Interfaces
The primary element of the tester electrical interface is the Probe Pin Ring (PPR). Sometimes referred to as a ‘tower,’ this array of spring-loaded probes can be arranged to provide a controlled impedance path, a low leakage connection, a low inductance arrangement for high currents, or just about any connection characteristic you require. inTEST EMS provides electrical interfaces in various OEM-supported designs, inTEST standards, and custom configurations.
Below are our most popular electrical interfaces.
CentaurTM PPR Product Line
inFLEXTM PPR Product Line
inFlex is mechanically and electrically compatible with the OEM offering. Unlike the OEM version, the inFLEX PPR series uniquely offers true modular construction that allows pins to be removed without losing alignment.
Each module has internal guide shims that keep the probes in alignment even when the outer cap is removed. This greatly speeds changing a damaged or contaminated probe.
Probe Pin Rings (PPRs) are available in the 300mm probe card size with both standard and increased applications space frames. For 440mm applications, the standard and “J” type frames are available with up to 6,400 probes. The PPR is configurable in 200 pin modules.
