Probe Positioners – Wide Range of Innovative Models

As you see from above, we have probe positioners to meet any budget or performance requirements. The economy Model 110 offers a low acquisition cost and small footprint for easy placement. Our medium range probe positioners offer industry leading flexibility and performance with 7 possible setup and positioning adjustments.

The Model 2525VM-2 has excellent COO for high-performance applications including sub-micron tests as well as a one-handed, left/right neutral operation. Our “Wave” series manipulators feature X-Y and Z leadscrew-lead nut control plus theta and planarity controls for alignment of microwave, multi-probe or mini-probe cards (such as Celadon’s “Versa Tile” and coplanar probes).

The probe positioners are stabilized by a vacuum or magnetic base and are used to support the probe holder. They are available in manual, motorized or programmable versions. Furthermore to permit different probe holder shank widths to be firmly attached to the manipulator, a collet and collet shaft are used. At Micromanipulator the collet shafts are included with our manipulators and applicable collets are included with probe holders.
