TP-107 Series

Components Corporation's TP-107 series of surface mounted, printed circuit test points allows engineers to take advantage of the convenience of field testing. The profile of the TP-107 readily accepts most commercially available spring clips and probes while providing a positive and secure anchor to the SMT board.

The Unique Flat Wire Design

To provide resistance to mechanical stress, the TP-107 achieves high-strength bonding through a unique forming process which doubles the surface area of the test points mounting. This is accomplished by forming the flat wire design in a spiral wrap on the mounting base, resulting in an adhesion to the solder pad which requires in excess of 18 pounds of force to dislodge the test point from its solder pad. For increased reliability and safety, the TP-107 surface mount test points are now available in silver-plated and matte tin finish.

Product Description

How the fabricators of SMT printed wiring boards may take advantage of the convenience of field testing with the unique loop design of Components Corporation's TP-107 series of surface mounted, printed circuit test points. The profile of the TP-107 readily accepts most commercially available spring clips and probes while providing a positive and secure anchor to the SMT board.

Since a test point is subject to mechanical stress, the strength of its bonding, particularly on a surface mount design, is crucial. The TP-107 achieves this through a unique forming process which doubles the surface area of the test points mounting. This is accomplished by forming the flat wire design in a spiral wrap on the mounting base resulting in an adhesion to the solder pad which requires in excess of 18 pounds of force to dislodge the test point from its solder pad.

TP-107 surface mount test points are available in two formats: bulk packaged and tape-and-reel configuration. The taped version is fully compatible with ANSI/EIA-481 standards. To insure a smooth flow to the solder pad, the TP-107 test point is plated with .0001 minimum matte tin finish over .0001 nickel underplate. In addition, the TP-107 is manufactured with .0001" minimum silver over .00005" minimum copper. The product is manufactured using Components Corporation's proprietary technology, assuring the highest possible performance.

The TP-107 is formed from phosphor bronze flat alloy wire which is spring tempered.

Recommended mounting pad dimensions are 0.185" x 0.135".

Offered in Matte Tin and Silver Plated options.
