  Socket Construction

Precision sized for increased pointing accuracy


Press ring interferes with mounting hole to secure socket at any set height and provides a leak tight seal.


Indent retains probe and provides secure electrical connection between socket and probe tube


Strong, straight, airtight, lead-free soldered construction


Round or square tailpins are available in a variety of lengths as well as a variety of connection options.

Cross-sections of the soldered socket joint show the interference fit of the tailpin in the tube and the complete filling of all gaps with lead-free solder. PB Free

The design and construction of the socket are as critical to the test process as the probe itself. QA Technology offers sockets deep-drawn from nickel silver, beryllium copper, stainless steel or our proprietary high-conductivity alloy. They may also be gold plated depending upon the application requirements.

We offer a variety of termination styles, such as wire wrap, solder cup, wireless, etc. in all of our product sizes. Square or round tail pins for our .100 [2.54] and .075 [1.91] center spacing sockets are made by automatically soldering the pins to the socket tube. This generation of sockets sets new standards in straightness, leak-tightness and strength in both tension and torsion.
