High Speed and High Accuracy Moving Probe Unit

Type9 Probe

Type9 ProbeBuilt-in Encoder
Type 9 probe has built-in encoder in the motor to achieve highly reliable probing from the low to high speed region through smooth controlling by encoder feedback. Furthermore, it has accomplished to dramatically increase the speed, thus for those test where low witness mark is emphasized, it is now possible to use MicroCraft' high speed setting while keeping low witness mark.
Enhanced Rigidity of Probe
Probe is the final part to complete the precise positioning, however it is also the part that is influenced by numerous external factor. For example, temperature is one of these factor. MicroCraft have reconsidered all material and modified the design of the parts used to build the probe in order to enhance the rigidity and thus be insulates from the influence of external factor.
* Optional when installing to models other than E4S/F2S.

Type7 Probe

Type7 ProbeType 7 probe is meticulously redesigned to its detailed composition parts with light weight material to support high speed testing. Furthermore, drive speed of the motor is adjusted to maximize the capacity of torque efficiency in order to realize the high speed probing.

A. One Screw Replacement

One Screw ReplacementWith our new cartridge design, users can now easily change tips as required to achieve optimum results. Most importantly the touch down sensor which allows unparalleled performance in testing flexible boards, highly warped PCB's, cavities and different heights on surface.

B. Fine Tuning Probe Pressure

Fine Tuning Probe PressureProbe pressure is adjusted by simple turn of a knob located on the rear of the probe unit. Compared to the adjustment with mechanical screw in the existing unit, the fine tuning adjustment in the new unit is much easier.

Probe Tip

Probe TipProbe Tip
Two types of probe tips are available: “Blade” type is suitable for standard boards allowing stable probing with through holes, while “Needle” type is suitable for fine pitch boards such as BGAs.

Kelvin Probe TipKelvin Probe Tip(Optional)
For low resistance measurements, Kelvin probes are also available. Kelvin probe needle tips achieve 20 micron pitch between the two contacts and allows testing of the C4 bumps on package boards.
