Lever-operated Test Adapter PA200
Programming adapter, manual adapter for small and medium-sized PCBs

  • Programming Adapter PA200
  • Cost-efficient contactor for small and medium-sized printed circuit boards (PCBs)

  • Well suited as a programming adapter

  • Contacting from below, above or both sides simultaneously

  • Installation of sensors and scanners possible

  • Contacting of connectors from the side

  • Adapter plates in many different sizes, fast swapping system

  • Small, light and intuitive


The PA200 manual lever-operated adapter is suitable for connecting small and medium-sized PCBs for function tests or as a programming adapter, for example. The adapter plates can easily be swapped.

In order to insert the device under test (DUT), the lower plate must be pulled forwards and the DUT placed on the spring-loaded positioning pins. For testing, push the plate backwards and operate the linear clamp. When contacting from below, the top plate acts as the hold-down bracket. PCBs equipped only on one side can be placed flat on the lower plate, and contacting can then be performed from the top. The vertical guide ensures correct positioning. Optional plates on the sides of the enclosure provide space to install connectors.


  • PCB contact with spring contact pins
  • Programming adapter – controller programming with test pads
  • LED tests
  • Climate tests from – 40 to + 90 ºC
  • Lateral contacting of connectors
