Header Post Interface

Header Ribbon

The Header Post Interface is a test point distribution solution that aids test fixture assembly and maintenance. Ribbon cables neatly deliver test points from the NX Tester to the Header Posts, then test fixtures are attached to MTA connectors then inserted into the header posts.. Header Posts Assemblies and Ribbon Cable Assemblies are ordered separately.

The Header Interface allows the distribution of 64 test points away from the NX Tester and provide an easy connector interface. These devices are connected to the NX Tester using the Ribbon Cable Interface Assemblies.
