Fine-Pitch Contacting Station MCS-500

Efficient test solutions for smaller centerline or pitch spacing, lower profile heights and lighter interconnect solutions.

The Konrad Fine-Pitch Contacting Station MCS-500 is a state-of-the art solution for testing printed circuit boards and low temperature co-fired ceramic structures at high speed with high accuracy. This system is the answer for today‘s challenges in test engineering. It combines rigid needle adapters with a vision inspection system and multi-axis motion control system for a process safe micro-alignment of the devices under test.
