ECT CPG personnel will be on hand to demonstrate the company’s latest technologies and answer customer inquiries related to its new range of products including:

ZIP® Long-Travel Z3 - The ZIP® Long-Travel was developed for contacting large devices and strip tests where planarity and compliance are an issue.

  • 0.40 mm pitch from 3.47 to 6.83 mm

ZIP® SCRUB™ -  The ZIP® SCRUB pin features a positive scrub-action pad and ball contact on lead-free plated array, and peripheral devices where solder transfer causes frequent cleaning and maintenance cycles.

ZIP® Steel - The complete range of ZIP® products will be available with a stainless steel alloy base material to increase probe tip life.

The ZIP® patented 2-D design features planar contact surfaces fabricated by a unique manufacturing process, delivering performance and cost advantages. The ZIP® Series is designed to meet today’s demanding test requirements and economics.
