The PQ216 probe holder and PCB holder kit is a valuable accessory for any BNC-input oscilloscope with up to 300 MHz bandwidth. It has been designed exclusively for use with the range of 2.5 mm probes from Pico, of which four P2036 300 MHz probes are included in this kit. Also included in the kit is an A4-sized (about 9" x 11") steel base plate, four PCB holders, four probe holders, and eight colored elastic cable ties. The kit is ideal for making hands-free measurements, for PCB inspection, and even as a soldering station!
The base plate provides the secure footing for your probe positioning system. It's mirror finished, allowing you to see the underside of the PCB to view any status LEDs during test.
Your PCB is fixed into place with four powerful magnetic posts employing spring-loaded clamps to grip the PCB under test. The clamps use a pair of replaceable insulating washers to avoid shorting tracks on the PCB.
With strong magnets at their base, the four gooseneck probe holders offer a flexible way to position the probe tip while holding it firmly poised in place. Their unique design employs a precisely weighted probe holder that pushes the sprung probe tip just enough to make a good contact on your PCB or unit under test. The kit includes eight pairs of silicone cable ties in the PicoScope channel colors (blue, red, green, yellow, purple, gray, light blue and magenta). These elastic rubber ties secure the probe cable to the probe holder gooseneck, adding stability and also a neat way of identifying which probes are connected to which channels (especially useful with an eight-channel oscilloscope!)
