The ECT Contact Products Group, includes the Ostby Barton/Pylon Division and is the world's leading manufacturer of POGO® contact probes for testing bare and loaded printed circuit boards. Innovations in design, engineering and manufacturing processes have led the industry from the development of the first snap-out or replaceable probe, in 1965, to more recent designs such as the high performance bias ball PogoPlus® probe line.

Contact Products Group R&D programs address engineering and materials issues that will affect PCB test for the next decade. Methods for maintaining electrical continuity in miniature probes, improved spring technologies, and probe head geometry's are under continual review. Specialized proprietary test equipment has been developed to assess the effectiveness of new designs.

Many of the innovative designs developed by ECT have resulted from close cooperation with customer engineers to solve specific problems. Development of Test-top", a reusable translator for cost effective production of PLCCs, is typical. In addition, close interactions with the ECT Test Fixture Group plays an important role in POGO® contact development. No other probe manufacturer has this unique intra company technology asset.

Miniaturization of electronic components and circuits will continue to challenge POGO® contact designers into the next century. ECT is well positioned to maintain its leadership in probe technology, marketing and manufacturing capabilities.Download here the latest ECT Probe catalog in PDF Format.
