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.
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.
ECT POGO® contacts are marketed worldwide through sales offices in the United States, Europe and Asia. For the Benelux countries Eurolectron BV is the exclusive agent for more then 30 years.
