Agilent Technologies has introduced four new full suite oscilloscope probe positioners. The N278xA Series probe positioners provide quick and stable probe positioning for making measurements on PC boards and other devices that require hands-free probing.
The N2784A one-arm positioner and N2785A two-arm positioner need only a "lift and drop" motion compared to multiple adjustments to lock the probe holder into position. The weight stabilisation technique used in the probe holder maintains constant pressure at the probing point so even if the target board is bumped the probe tip will stay in position.
The N2786A is a low-cost, easy-to-use XY axis probe holder for general-purpose probing applications. The two-legged probe positioner itself has no controls to position it in place and has been designed to be easy to use.
The Agilent N2787A is a 3-D probe positioner with a flexible, articulating arm that can be positioned in a wide variety of configurations, quickly. The probe positioner also allows fine adjustments to the probe location to obtain stable contact.
The Agilent N2784A Series probe positioners are available now.
