High-Current Contacting of Blade-Connectors

High-Current Contacting of Blade-Connectors

You are looking to use a flat blade connector in a high current application? But it is difficult to apply a front face with sufficient contact surface. For this reason many applications use clamps. This solution is not very durable and it has the risk of damaging the surface of the blade connector.

    No scratching of the surface

  • FEINMETALL has developed a special contact probe for high current contacting flat blade connectors. A slotted and twist proof contact head is moved over the contact blade. The compression of the plunger leads to a twist movement. So the contact head is getting a good and smooth contact to the test item without damaging or scratching the surface.

  • F762...C family

  • With a single probe of the new family F762...C currents up to 40 A can be realized, depending on the ambient temperature. By using several probes in parallel, even higher currents are possible.

  • A position test at very limited space by using a probe

    A position sensor system is the ideal solution for exact measurement and documentation of pin lengths, hole depths etc. This system can be used like a contact probe even in small centers. An integrated potentiometer allows the exact determination of the position of the DUT.

  • Feinmetall HF819 – optimized solution for contacting HSD-connectors

    FEINMETALL has recently redesigned the RF contact probe for contacting HSD-connectors. The new RF probe HF819 is equipped with a calyx spring for optimized guiding of the probe onto the connector. The capture area will be extended and damages can be avoided by optimizing the conical insertion of the circular contact and the position of the calyx spring. The probe HF819 is available in different versions with different tip styles of the inner pins.
