Identification of test points in high-density PCB packages is key for greater PCB production testing and service troubleshooting. Keystone Electronics (New Hyde Park, NY) has developed a new series of surface mountable test points with colored insulator bases as an addition to their line of rugged test points which replace wire-wrap posts and turret terminals. These new test points are manufactured in Phosphor bronze with a silver plate for superior soldering and low electrical resistance for a variety of applications. Specifically:
- The colored identification bases are manufactured of high-temperature nylon, suitable for most SMT reflow solder operations with an operating temperature of up to 150°C.
- Test points are available in 10 different colored bases: Red, Black, White, Yellow, Orange, Brown, Green, Blue, Purple and Gray.
- The sturdy design of these test points allow for multiple cycles of use with a variety of gripping devices, hooks, tips and probes.
- Delivery is from stock through Keystone’s global distribution network, and online ordering is available.
