Temperature stimulation of the DUT is accomplished by plunger installed into the Thermal Head of the
Flex / MaxTC. The plunger is installed into the Thermal Head with the help of four mounting pins and two retaining screws. The Thermal Head with the plunger inside is then positioned to be in direct contact with the DUT. The changes in temperature are passed from plunger to DUT by direct conduction. The plunger contains a Thermal Sensor (PT100)
The Thermal Head also has 4 Purge Nozzles for the purpose of introduction of Nitrogen or dry air in the Thermal Head via the access line connected to the unit’s back panel. The constant supply of Nitrogen or dry air flow creates a frost and humidity free shield around the DUT.
Flex / MaxTC Thermal Head
For testing devices in sockets the Thermal Head is mounted using the adapter plate. For soldered and
open-top DUT’s the Thermal Head is mounted directly onto the board by using a boom stand.
The fastest settling time on the market.
Direct conduction = Rapid transition.
