Fixture Interfacing
 
NX System test point boards provide 128 test points per board, organized into 2 groups of 64 points each. Each group of 64 test points is accessible from the back of the Tester. A card edge connector is used to interface to a set of 64 test points. The card edge connector may be equipped with discrete wires or with a ribbon cable. Choose either discrete wire interfacing or ribbon cable.  
A discrete wire interface cable consists of 64 individual wires. Each wire runs directly from a test point to a fixture pin. It is less expensive than the ribbon cable solution.
 
Ribbon cables neatly deliver test points from a NX Tester to Terminal Block Interfaces. Fixture pins are wired to the Terminal Block Interface by screw terminals. Should a fixture block require maintenance, it can be unscrewed and replaced with a substitute in seconds.
