Flex FP80

FP80 Flex Positioner

Flex Positioner FP80 is a versatile, low-cost positioner for holding a variety of test probes, especially the widely used oscilloscope probes. Using the articulated arm for coarse positioning first and then controlling the fine adjustments with the XY stage and Z-axis probe force knob, one can make good test measurements with reliable probe contact.
