Guide to Test Hooks

  • May 26
    Guide to Test Hooks Test hooks are designed to fit over electrical components in a variety of applications to test electrical current, temperature, voltage, and more. In addition, some hooks are specifically designed with a piercing needle to bypass wire insulation and directly connect to a wire’s conductor. In this blog, a general overview of test hook features and construction will be reviewed. E-Z-Hook offers hundreds of test hook and test lead combinations with various wire gauges, wire insulation (PVC, teflon, silicone, rubber), coil cord, breakout cable assemblies, and more. E-Z-Hook’s connectors can be combined in multiple ways to produce your required test lead solution. A commonly sought after feature when purchasing test hooks is a single piercing needle on the contact blade of the hook. This allows users to test electrical measurements without having to reach the end of wires in hard to reach places. Test hooks generally connect to wire via crimp or solder connection, while some have additional contact points (commonly a banana socket/jack), or even both wire attachment and additional adapter capabilities on one hook. Still others are standalone adapters with no permanent wire connection.Get more news about test hook clip,you can vist our website!

    Test hooks are popular components across various industries for prototyping, diagnostic testing, safety testing, analysis, trouble shooting and more. Some examples of our test hooks currently being used in specific industry applications include: automotive (engine, battery, braking systems, sensors, control signals/modules), electrical/energy (lighting, fuse boxes, circuit boards, generators, battery cabinets, electrical systems, air conditioning), aerospace (battery servicing, switches, test terminals and termination points), defense (bomb detection shunt devices), medical (monitoring systems), and education (research & development labs, prototypes). In industry specialized fields, many of our product solutions are custom, however, we have launched a collection of standard products specifically created to meet the market needs.

Designed for use with surface mount devices or where connection point space is limited – especially for narrow test contact areas. An ultra-thin blade and housing allows connector stacking and easier access. Essential for use where weight and leverage may damage components. Its lightweight body (less than 1 gram) and hypo-action easily allows for direct hook-up to delicate wires and components. Best sellers include the X2015, XM, XKM, P25, and XEP. The standard material used for the contact blades is gold-plated beryllium copper for micro and mini hooks and nickel-silver for macro-hooks. Also available for some hooks is copper (to provide greater current capacity), stainless-steel (great for sterile environments), nickel-plated steel, music wire. Most hooks are also available non-magnetic.
