Price – Price range depending on the size of kit

UUT SIZE – The unit under test (UUT) can be up to size ___” X ___”

Test point probe center to center spacing – The center-to-center distance (from the center of one point to the center of the adjacent point) between two adjacent testpoints.

Test Point Quantity – The more test points you have, the more probes will be required on the fixture which in turn adds spring force. The spring force gets calculated into lbs – ie: 100 probes x 3.2 ounces per probe which equates to 20 lbs of forcse to compress onto the UUT (force can vary depending on selection).

Probe Axis – The ability to contact UUT from the top, bottom or side on this particular platform.

Linear UUT Engagment – Contact to the UUT in a linear, vertical motion – perfect Z-Axis.

Quick change over of fixture plates – Can change fixture plates to test other UUTs in minutes
