High Current Probes

The maximum continuous current rating of a spring probe is determined by its design, size, and construction. Typical probes are rated from 2 to 8 amps maximum continuously current at working travel. While this is sufficient for most board test applications, higher current applications will require a much more solid and rugged probe to withstand current capabilities of 10 to 150 amps and beyond.

Another high current solution is our feed-through plunger probe line. As the name already describes, the plunger moves right through the probe and is made from a single piece, reducing the internal resistance of the probe to a minimum.
