Micropositioners

ACCESSORIES FOR PROBE STATIONS - Micropositioners

From the basic joystick model to the high-end submicronic version, our positioners are used on all types of probers to access conductive pads or lines down to the micron
• Economical models include three control knobs on each side and rear
• Highest models have in-line knobs preserving maximum space on the platen
• A high frequency RF range is available
• Hold down to the platen is magnetic or by vacuum or bolt-down (RF versions)
