ECT's Contact Products Group will be on hand to demonstrate the company's latest technologies and answer customer inquiries related to its range of products, which include:
Bead Probe Technology - The concept of using small raised bumps is a new test methodology for placing test points directly on the PCB's copper traces, thus forming a “bead.” These beads then become the test point targets for use during in-circuit testing.
Wire Harness - ECT is the largest supplier of wire-harness probes to North American automotive and major appliance manufacturers. ECT probes ensure reliable test results for continuity testing, push testing, presence checking, terminal push-out and other wire harness test applications.
Battery Probes - ECT's versatile line of battery interconnect probes provide design flexibility to match any performance, cost and assembly requirements. The company's design expertise and complete manufacturing capabilities can help bring products to market faster and easier.
PogoPlus® - The PogoPlus® Series addresses the unique demands of loaded board testing, featuring an enhanced version of the legendary bias-ball design to virtually eliminate "false opens." ECT offers a full range of sizes and tip styles to accommodate all manners of testing requirements.
ProWorks - A division of Everett Charles Technologies and leading developer of process control and work instruction software, the company will have a demo of its software on display in the booth. ProWorks is a multi-user process management software tool that enables businesses to deploy and manage the execution of work instructions and processes throughout their organizations. Unlike conventional documentation tools, ProWorks turns work instructions into a real-time, integrated component of the manufacturing floor.
atg/LM A5-A Probe System With Automation - The A5-A Probe System has been developed in direct response to market needs for a fully functional and affordable automated test platform for the small manufacturing facility. Taking proven atg/LM technology, the A5-A Probe System has been fully automated to meet the needs of companies with as little as one production line.
LFRE 25, LFRE 1, LFRE 72 - A variety of LFRE tip styles provides the flexibility to meet any application needs. The probe tips are manufactured with ECT's MicroSharp™ and plated with ECT's proprietary LFRE plating technology, offering the ultimate in long lasting resistance to contamination and tip sharpness and contact integrity.
OB - Meeting the challenges of today’s sophisticated technology is Ostby-Barton's complete line of test probes — more than 1,100 standard and 4,300 custom models. Designed for high-reliability testing and/or connecting of circuits, components, assemblies, PC boards, ICs and similar applications, Ostby-Barton test probes provide the solutions to thousands of testing and contacting problems.
OB Pylon - Inventors of the Pogo Bias Ball design, Pylon products offer a full range of replaceable probes from 0.050" test centers to 0.250" test centers. Additionally, a superior series of Non Replaceable (permanent mount by soldering, press fit or epoxy) is available ranging from 0.025" centers to 0.300" test centers including the 45 Amp Brute series.
