Components Corporation Adds Single-Molded Color-Coded Test Points
Single-molded test point.
Denville, NJ —Components Corporation has expanded its 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, and TP-106 enhance visibility for polarization and identification on circuit boards. The single-molded TP-104 incorporates non-slip grip of test clips and probes, a low profile, and is 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 TP-105 test point offers a loop profile for positive test probe retention, fits in the popular .035" diameter hole size, and is available without a burr. The above board profile is below that of headers and other devices used as test points, enabling it to accommodate a refit without printed circuit board layout re-design costs, reducing test point height, and improving function. The oval loop design of the single molded TP-106 test point contact provides a profile which stands above circuitry, offers a positive anchor for spring loaded clips or probe tips, and is large enough to terminate conventional alligator clips. The TP-106 is designed to withstand the temperatures of production wave soldering processes and resist board cleaning solvents or chemicals and is manufactured without a burr. Products may be specified for use in a wide range of applications, all abiding by the current Directive 2011/65/EU RoHS and EU Regulation EC 1907/2006.
