ECT has announced its SPP-25 probes that are geared to support non-destructive electrical contact at various stages of test during the fabrication process of solar photovoltaic (PV) products. According to the company, the reliable and effective solution is aimed at high volume production test that is needed as volumes increase due to alternative energies becoming more mainstream.

Spring probe technology is an ideal solution to provide electrical connection to obtain I-V curve measurements, or providing reliable contact for your challenging high current or low voltage connections, noted ECT. SPP-25 probes feature low, stable resistance, a centre close for enhanced pointing accuracy, tip styles designed to distribute spring force across a large area, and two force options; 4oz and 6oz. The probes are specifically designed to yield a linear force, compression relationship as the probe is actuated. This minimises potentially harmful jumps or steps in force. SPP-25 probes fit into standard Pogo 25 receptacles.

ECT probes are often used for standard or custom automated test equipment and fixture applications which involve simulation, production testing, characterisation, validation or failure analysis. ECT has leveraged decades of spring probe design and manufacturing know-how to create probes that ensure reliable electrical contact without damaging the PV cell.
