 S Standard 1.2 [34] 4.8 [136] SS 100K @ .317 [8.05]
 U2 Ultra 1.3 [37] 7.5 [213] SS 10K @ .317 [8.05]
Select your option (if required).
Letter Description - no options are required.
 D Decreased stroke is .250 [6.35]. Must select from 050-T25 Series spring forces with this option.
 N No probe lubrication. Removing probe lubrication greatly reduces cycle life and should only be used in applications requiring operating temperatures below -55°C.
Steel Heat treated steel/plated gold over nickel (see tip styles for availability)

1Current Rating is affected by spring material and lubrication choices. Standard lubrication has a 120°C maximum operating temperature limit.
Use SS springs with no lubrication (-N) for testing beyond standard lubrication temperature limits up to 204°C.
Before using probes near these current limits, please refer to Current Carrying Capacity and Operating Temperature Application Notes.
