Reliable Probes for Most Challenging High Current Testing
Everett Charles Technologies Introduces HC500F High Current Probe
Fontana, California: Everett Charles Technologies (ECT) introduces the latest addition to our versatile family of high current probes; the HC500F. The HC500F is rated at 150 Amps DC and is designed for the most challenging applications in a broad range of industrial test applications including transportation, automotive, power grid, military and PCB test.
The HC500 enhances the ECT high current spring probe line. The extensive ECT high current probe offering now comprises 8 different continuous current ratings – starting at 10 Amps and peaking at 150 Amps. All ECT high current probes are optimized to meet the dedicated needs of high current applications. Tip styles have been developed to maximize surface contact and reduce arcing. Body geometries and materials have been defined to minimize resistance. ECT high current probes ensure reliable and repeatable testing up to 150 Amps and support extended test times.
Tony DeRosa, Product Manager confirms:”Our probes are designed to address the critical parameters of high current testing: low resistance plungers, optimized base materials and plating, high temperature spring design, and high current tip geometry. Building on ECT’s experience in probe design and fabrication, we’re able to offer these rugged and reliable solutions for high volume production and engineering characterization testing.”
