The Contact Products Group (CPG) of Everett Charles Technologies will showcase the Edge™ in Booth #721 at the upcoming Del Mar Electronics and Design Show, scheduled to take place May 4-5, 2011 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego, CA.
CPG President, Bud Fabian, said “We have been able to develop a low-cost, interchangeable alternative to the expensive round, steel-bladed plungers that are being increasingly requested by customers worldwide in test fixtures.”
The Edge™ provides an economical, sharp, aggressive and shallow angle blade tip for reliable via probing on PCBs by incorporating ECT’s patented ZIP® flat technology manufacturing cost advantages. It is fully replaceable in current fixtures with 100 mill receptacles installed.
In addition to the Edge™, CPG will exhibit its entire range of Contact Products, Ostby-Barton and Pylon Pogo® pins, addressing the in-circuit, functional, semiconductor, high frequency coaxial, high current and battery interconnect markets. Products to be highlighted at the show include the Edge™, an expanded range of LFRE™ tip styles, and the new long-travel Z3 addition to the ZIP® family of "flat" technology Pogo® pins.
