Precise hands-free PCB Probing

Saelig PCBite24 June 2019 - Saelig Company introduced the Sensepeek PCBite System - a professional yet affordable PCB testing apparatus with a system of repositionable fine-point spring-loaded probes, a large (8.3" x 11.7") metal baseplate, and four magnetic-base PCB holders for clamping circuit boards in a stable, fixed position. The probes are attached to a flexible, stable gooseneck arm that has a powerful magnetic base, and the probe's gold-plated needle tips are replaceable.

An easy electrical connection is made to the probe tip via a standard pair of built-in 0.1"-separated posts, enabling two instruments, such as a multimeter and oscilloscope, to be connected to the test point simultaneously. The metal base-plate also has a mirror finish, which helps users to view the underside of the board being worked on.

Probing just got much easier with PCBite, a remarkably stable, hands-free probe system for accurate PCB investigation. There has previously been no satisfactory solution for continuous probe measurements of diverse component shapes and sizes. The PCBite's precision tip probe solves this issue.

The PCBite probe has a "press and forget" function which secures the probe in a firm-contact position. To stabilize the measuring contact, the user gently compresses the spring-loaded probe tip against the test point to be tested, causing the tip to be in spring-loaded contact. The weight of the head ensures that the compressible needle maintains constant pressure contact at the probing point. Spring-loading the pin tip ensures that electrical contact is not lost even during mild vibrations or if the base with captured board is moved about. The rigidity of the probe's flexible metallic arm is sufficient to hold it in place for making repeatable, reliable measurements.

PCBite is an ideal tool for handling circuit boards during design or repair activities such as soldering, inspection, or test. The neodymium magnet holders feature insulating washers at the gripping point to safely trap a PCB even when powered up without shorting tracks. These PCB holders can be freely moved to accommodate circuit boards of different shapes and sizes.

The PCBite system is made in Sweden by Sensepeek AB. It is available now from their from USA technical distributor Saelig.
