Vertical PCB Holder

VPH100 holds a printed circuit board (PCB) vertically for double-sided probing applications. Its upper bar has a quick release mechanism that allows a user to easily mount and dismount a PCB from the holder. By loosening the adjustment screws, the lower bar can move up and down in 9 small steps (1 cm/step) to set the PCB in the appropriate height for ease of testing VPH80 is a new design to support small PCBs and modules. It holds the PCB/module at 4 corners.
