Attaching Probes to Articulating Arms and Manipulators
Bench Top Probing Solution For a simple bench mount setup, purchase the GPVAC vacuum pump, a Probing Solutions micromanipulator and a GigaProbes™ GPMMA adapter to attach the probe to the micromanipulator. This configuration allows for repeatable and ease of probing and frees up the operator other hand to control the TDR oscilloscope.
If you are making a two or four port measurement requiring two probe one can be attached to the micromanipulator and the other is hand probing. Without a probe holder this configuration this measurement is very difficult to perform.
Mounting GigaProbes™ on Tektronix, Cascade, LeCroy and Probing Solutions Articulating Arms
GPMMA attached to Cascade Microtech EZ Probe positioner
Cascade Microtech Ez_probe is available from Agilent and LeCroy as an option for holding the GigaProbes for TDR testing with their instruments.
