Keystone Adds More Test Point Colors



Astoria, New York, May 2008... Identification of test points in high density PCB packages is a key to greater accuracy. Keystone Electronics has developed a series of new, additional colors to expand its line of rugged devices which replace wire-wrap posts and turret terminals.

The new colors consist of Brown, Green, Blue, Purple, Gray which, in addition the existing Red, Black, White, Yellow and Orange, may be used on .062 and .093 thick PCB'S with a variety of gripping devices. Among these are J-Hooks, EZ-Hooks, Grabbers, Alligator Clips, Tips and Probes. The new designs also serve to keep on-board terminals perpendicular to the PCB so that relative position, during and after wave soldering is maintained.

All ten colors now offered are available for use with the firm's Miniature, Compact and Multi-Purpose Test Points. Miniature types are manufactured from .010"(.25) Phosphor Bronze with Silver plating while Compact and Multi-Purpose types employ the same materials sized at .015"(.38) dia. Miniature types mount in a single .040"(1.0) dia. PCB hole while Compact and Multi-Purpose types mount in an .063"(1.6) dia. PCB hole.

Delivery is from stock for all test points through the company's global distribution network. On-line ordering is also available.

Application engineering assistance for product modifications and special designs are also available.
