Frequently Asked Questions Ask a Question

Is there a recommended insertion tool that I can use with the ATE probes and sleeves?

We do not have a specific insertion tool for our ATE test probe sleeves. If you are press-fit assembling the sleeve to a panel, you would just need to support the underside of the panel around the mounting hole, and push down on the sleeve with a flat plate. A typical bench press should be suitable. The probe should then be fitted to the sleeve by hand. There is also an instruction sheet available for these products.

What is the compressive spring force of the S1941-42 clip?

We have two forces stated on the second page of the Technical Drawing (available under Downloads on this page), for the horizontal and vertical directions at recommended working deflection. The spring force is 1.2N at both deflections – 0.3mm deflection in the vertical and 0.4mm in the horizontal.

Why is there no voltage rating for this contact?

Voltage rating is calculated from the flashover voltage – the voltage at which the electricity can break down the air gap and jump between two contacts. With a single contact, the voltage rating you achieve will depend on the space you leave between two contacts, or a contact and any other conducting element. So we are unable to give a voltage rating for single contacts, as it will depend on your usage.

Given there will be no voltage present during switching, how many mating cycles can this connector handle?

This contact has been rated up to 5000 cycles durability (as long as the amount of deflection is kept within the stated maximums). You can see this specification and the maximum deflection on the Technical Drawing/Datasheet S1941.pdf.

Does this product need a pick and place cap for SMT placement?

A separate pick and place cap is not necessary (and is not supplied) – the part has an integrated flat surface that should be used for pick and place purposes. You just need to specify a vacuum nozzle of the right size.
