Pomona's new Test Probe Set features a combination of new styling, new materials and IEC1010 compliance

Ergonomic design and new materials for better performance

Pomona Electronics introduced the newly redesigned Model 5519A test probe set. The new design is fully compliant with the latest international safety standard, IEC 1010 with Category III, 1,000 volt overvoltage protection. This probe has been designed to fit most digital multimeters from Fluke, Hewlett-Packard, Tektronix and Wavetek. The new ergonomic design offers a more comfortable and secure feeling during test.

The probe tip is entirely new as well. It is made from a very hard, corrosion resistant material that offers low contact resistance and durability. This makes the probe well suited for use in microvolt and nanovolt measurements. The lead wire is also new. The silicone insulation offers improved performance in both high and low temperature environments, and resists tangling.

The new shape and soft touch design offer additional comfort and security to the user. The silicone wire jacket assures that the material remains flexible even in very low temperatures, which makes the new probe set more suitable for use outdoors, in factories or labs where low temperatures can be expected.

The Model 5519A test probe is also available in several of Pomona's new test lead kits for digital multimeters. The Model 5519A is a replacement probe set for most meters made by Fluke, Hewlett-Packard, Wavetek and Tektronix.
