A helping hand for engineers

Flex Positioner is an innovative probe positioner from Emulation Technology for quick and stable hands-free probing. Its unique combination of an articulated arm and an independent precision XYZ stage allow a user to quickly and accurately place the probe on the target. Using the articulated arm for coarse positioning first and then controlling the fine adjustments with the XYZ stage and probe tips planarization knob, one can make good test measurements with reliable probe contact.

Vertical probing of hard-to-reach areas

Flex Positioner’s long, articulated arm and rugged structure make it perfect for vertical probing of boards and backplane in a chassis. The arm, comprising 4 links and 3 joints, can be locked down with a single thumbscrew easily. The following figure shows the Flex Positioner is used for the challenging task of probing a vertical backplane in a chassis.
