CABLE HARNESS TEST


Special spring contact probes for cable harness test in the
automotive industry show one very special feature: Contact
probe and receptacle are connected via thread. Recurring
removal forces, applied during plug connector test, cannot
pull the spring contact probe out of its receptacle. Suitable
screw-in tools for various probe series are available on
request.
Along with normal spring contact probes, switch contact
probes are available which provide connection only when a
defined minimal travel value has been reached. This helps
to easily test for correct installation dimensions or to check
the presence of components.
Some spring contact probes feature a large plate shaped
disk below the probe head. This is used to define or limit
the penetration depth of the probe head into female connectors or connector housings.
As is the case for other sectors, some sort of standardisation took place, so that brand-name products from different
manufacturers are interchangeable. Our cable test products
are compatible with those from other brands. We would
like to assist you in translating article codes from other
brands.

Outer dimensions of series 172 are


identical to series 72, however the
interior construction differs widely:
The split plunger ensures a reliable
continuous current transmission with
high performance potential. Receptacles of series 72 can be used.
