New ColorKeyed SMT Test Points
Identification of test points in high density PCB packages is the key to greater PCB production testing and service troubleshooting.
Keystone Electronics has developed a new series of surface mountable test points with a color keyed insulator base for visibility and quick identification.The wire loop provides convenient access points for J-hooks and test probes.
These new test points are manufactured from Phosphor Bronze with a Silver Plating allowing for superior soldering and low electrical resistance. The colored identification base is manufactured from high temperature LCP suitable for SMT reflow soldering operations. Packaging is on tape and reel per ANSI/EIA-481 standard for compatibility with pick and place assembly systems. The variety of colored bases available consist of 10 colors: Red, Black, White, Yellow, Orange, Brown, Green, Blue, Purple, and Gray.
Our latest miniature Circuit Board Test Point features the ability to be mounted on a PCB via Thru-Hole or Surface Mounting methods
Designed with a unique hybrid mounting style which maximizes the efficiency of SMT contacts with the strong and durable solder connections to a circuit board of Thru Hole mounted devices. This new Test Point has a locating pin design to provide positive location of the device during the assembly process. When installed on .032 thick boards, the locating pin can also be used as a solder point for thru-hole mounting operations
Catalog No. 5027 features a symmetrical flat-wire design making it a superior anchoring point for probes, j-hooks and other circuit testing devices while minimizing shifting and damage which is common on standard posts and terminals.
