Test Probes

Pasternack, Irvine, CA, offers semi-rigid test probes for testing microwave circuits. By soldering the outer conductor to the signal ground and the exposed center conductor to the trace carrying the signal of interest, sampling measurements can be made without creating a separate subassembly circuit board or adding a connector to the circuit layout. The probes are offered in three diameters of semi-rigid coax: 0.02", 0.034", and 0.047".

Load Frame

To facilitate materials testing on the mesoscale, Psylotech, Evanston, IL, offers the TS™ modular platform that validates material models across 6 orders of magnitude of force and length scales. Users can discern NIST-traceable stress and strain readings ranging from soft tissue to macro-scale composite layups. Force capacities are available from 100N to 10kN, with a local displacement sensor to minimize measured compliance and verify global specimen strain.

Measurement System

KAMAN Precision Products, Colorado Springs, CO, offers the digiVIT non-contact position measuring system for monitoring movement, position, vibration, alignment, or deflection. The eddy current sensor for position/displacement/ proximity sensing features a self-tuning bridge that eliminates the need to connect to a PC to download a configuration file when changing sensors or doing high-level calibrations. All functions can be accessed through four pushbuttons on the front panel.
