Single-molded test points eliminate standard cut edge
Components Corporation has expanded product offerings to include a series of single-molded test points, eliminating the standard cut edge. The color-coded plastic stand-offs of the new TP-104, TP-105, TP-106 enhance visibility for easy polarization and identification on a crowded circuit board.
The new single-molded TP-104 incorporates all of the design features of all Component's test points –Color-coded solid non-slip grip of test clips and probes, low profile, single hole wave-solderable, eliminating skin punctures suffered by users of wrap posts as substitute test points. The TP 104 is now available without a “burr”
The new single-molded TP-105 series test point offers a loop profile for positive test probe retention. . The 105 fits in the popular .035" diameter hole size. The above board profile is substantially below that of headers and other devices used as test points accommodating a refit without any printed circuit board layout re-design costs, significantly reducing test point height and improving function. The TP-105 is available without a “burr”.
The oval loop design of the single molded TP-106 test point contact provides a profile which stands above crowded circuitry, offers a positive anchor for spring loaded clips or probe tips and is large enough to terminate conventional alligator clips. The color-coded standoff of the TP-106 is designed to withstand the temperatures of production wave soldering processes and resist board cleaning solvents or chemicals. TP-106 test points are now manufactured as a single molded part without a “burr”.
