Model W2.5 x L6.5 Mini Probe Station...................Price $1,850.00 USD

Model W2.5 x L6.5 Portable Mini Probe Station. test, measurement, fabrication industry, portable manual probeThis portable manual probing station

is designed for a versatile, comfortable, and accurate operation on up to 2.5” wafers or 2.5” X 6.5” printed circuit board assemblies.

 

This turn-key, manually operated probing station, model W2.5 x L6.5, is part of the D-COAX commitment to the test and measurement and fabrication industries. This affordable machine offers a versatile design with portability in mind. This is the first probing station to offer such a light weight and portable design; put it in the custom transport case (sold separately) or your back-pack and take it where you need to make your measurements, in another laboratory or office. Unlike the competitor's probe station, you can sit or stand while using this unit due to the very low table to chuck height. The chuck has a unique in the design, with a width of 2.5 inches and the length of 6.5 inches, suitable for circuit boards or multiple devices. The Z positioning is via a digital readout in micrometers or inches for accurate probe “touch-downs”. Its versatility, affordability, and user friendly features make it the best manual probe station on the market.

• Unique chuck area 2.5 inch wide by 6.5 inch long, allows multiple smaller DUT’s or long circuit board testing

• Vibration isolation feet

• Compatible with all standard wafer probes

 

Requirements/Utilities:

In order to have a complete test setup for measuring the DUT, the following hardware

and utilities are required:

1. Test instrument capable of the specific DUT test requirements

2. Cables capable of the specific DUT test requirements (see D-COAX cable assemblies offerings Link to Semi-rigid and Flexible assemblies pages)

3. Vacuum pump

4. Microscope

5. Probes (D-COAX suggests GGB probes www.ggb.com)

6. Impedance Standard Substrate (D-COAX suggests GGB calibration standards www.ggb.com)

7. Accessories for specific DUT sizes and topography (see Accessories offerings by D-COAX below)

Accessories:

D-COAX offers the following probe station accessories:

90 DEGREE PROBE

CONVERTER/ADAPTER

Price $350.00 USD

Two probes oriented to face each other isn’t always enough selection because some circuits have pads at 90 degrees to the other probe. The adapter can be used to place the probe 90 degree from the original position or hold two probes oriented at 90 degrees to each other.  The pitch between two probes can be adjusted by sliding the probe holders inside the 0.6 inch slots in the adapter.   90 degree probe converter, adapter, probe stations, multiple probe configurationsUse another adapter on the opposite side for wider pitch.

This probe station adapter is compatible to any D-COAX probe station.
