Identification of test points in high density PCB packages is a key to high accuracy.

Keystone Electronics has developed a series of new, additional colours to expand its line of rugged devices which replace wire-wrap posts and turret terminals.

The new series of colours includes Brown, Green, Blue, Purple, Gray; in addition the existing colours of Red, Black, White, Yellow and Orange, may be used on 062” (1.6) and .093” (2.4) thick PCBs with a variety of gripping devices.

Among these are J-Hooks, EZ-Hooks, Grabbers, Alligator Clips, Tips and Probes. The new designs also serve to keep on-board terminals perpendicular to the PCB so that the relative position, during and after wave soldering is maintained.

All ten colours offered now are available from NPA for use with Keystone Electronics’ Miniature, Compact and Multi-Purpose Test Points.

Miniature types are manufactured from .010"(.25) phosphor bronze with silver plating while Compact and Multi-Purpose types employ the same materials sized at .015"(.38) diameter Miniature types mount in a single .040"(1.0) diameter PCB hole while Compact and Multi-Purpose types mount in an .063"(1.6) diameter PCB hole.

Keystone Electronics' capabilities include stamping, machining and assembly services. Application engineering assistance for product modifications and special designs are also available. ISO-9001-2000 certified and RoHS compliant, Keystone Electronics' headquarters is in the USA with offices in Canada, Europe, Australia and Asia.
