Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Test Kit: Fast and Easy Testing

The reliability of complex electronics in mobile use or harsh environments is a result of the experience gained in development and intensive testing. At HBK, we have made it our business to make mechanical durability and reliability testing based on strain measurement on printed circuit boards as simple and fast as possible.

The printed circuit board test kit contains all the tools and aids required for measuring strain on PCBs in compliance with IPC/JEDEC 9704, from the strain gauges to the measuring bridge amplifier and the data acquisition software showing the results in a live display.


In addition to the matching pre-wired strain gauges and their installation aids, the kit contains a QuantumX bridge module and catman software with a ready-to-use testing project including a pre-configured test certificate as a report in Microsoft Word format. The package includes one year of software maintenance.


Technical assistance for the installation of the strain gauges and the measurement setup and implementation in catman is available on our website.
