Everett Charles Technologies Introduces HC500F High Current Probe


Reading time ( words)

Everett Charles Technologies (ECT) has introduced the latest addition to our versatile family of high-current probes; the HC500F. The HC500F is rated at 150 Amps DC and is designed for the most challenging applications in a broad range of industrial test applications including transportation, automotive, power grid, military and PCB test.

The HC500 enhances the ECT high-current spring probe line. The extensive ECT high current probe offering now comprises 8 different continuous current ratings – starting at 10 amps and peaking at 150 amps. All ECT high-current probes are optimized to meet the dedicated needs of high current applications. Tip styles have been developed to maximize surface contact and reduce arcing. Body geometries and materials have been defined to minimize resistance. ECT high current probes ensure reliable and repeatable testing up to 150 Amps and support extended test times.
