In Focus: Thexton Extended Electrical Back Probe Kit

May 23, 2011

Thexton's Extended Electrical Back Probe Kit, No. 490X, allows the technician to back probe connectors easily without having to remove the terminal. The extension wire makes it easier to test in difficult to reach locations. The 490X contains eight extended electrical backprobes in four different colors. These backprobes are used to access electrical circuits from the back side of the connector. The extension wire allows the technician to access connectors that are tucked away, and makes testing connectors more convenient.

Origin

This idea came from the company's existing Electrical Back Probe Kits (Nos. 490, 490-M and 490-90) and also mobile distributor comments.

Distributors will benefit from this product because many technicians are familiar with Thexton’s other back probe products, how well they work and the necessity for an extension wire to reach connectors that are tucked away in difficult locations. The end user will benefit from this product because testing will become more convenient and will save time.
