The new P819-A & P819-D from Peak Test Services is a spring contact probe specifically designed for contacting HSD (high-speed data) connectors in RF applications. The probes are equipped with a calyx spring for optimised guiding of the probes onto the connector. The conical insertion configuration of the circular contact and the position of the calyx spring provide an optimum set-up for maximizing the capture area and minimizing damage to the probe or the connector.
The P819 probe is available in different versions with different tip styles of the inner pins. For easy and secure connection of the probe, different contact elements are available to allow well defined and reproducible measuring paths even when probes are changed.
Currently the P819 allows testing with signals up to 2 GHz. However a further probe for signals up to 3 GHz with a self-cleaning tip style is planned for future release. The new probes are available in the UK and Ireland from Peak Test Services and via a range of appointed distributors worldwide.
