Mousetrap Expansion Parts

These parts add additional probing points to a Mousetrap.  The J-Bar
clamps to the Mousetrap and the Probe Holder clamps to the J-Bar
per Cartridge
Please note that the picture shows a blank Cartridge installed in a Mousetrap.  This
Mousetrap is in the open position.  See the
Mousetrap System for the closed position.  The
Cartridge consists of the 3 G-10 plates (in green), the 4 springs (between the bottom and
middle plates, the 4 guide rods (1 through each corner of the bottom and middle plates),  and
mounting hardware.

Note also that the J-Bars and Clamp Bars (the J-Bars attach between the Clamp Bars, see
Mousetrap System for a picture) have been removed.  This step is not necessary, but it does
allow them to be used elsewhere.

As a final note, it is possible retain the Clamp Bars on 1 frame (usually the upper frame) to
allow J-Bars and hold-down fingers to be used instead of the top G-10 plate.  This allows
clearance for manual probing of the UUT, if desired.

Cable Converter Boards (CCBs) provide an easy interface between standard 100 and 68-pin
High Density cables, as used on many PXI- and PC-based instrument cards, and the outside
world.All boards are wired pin-to pin, from the connector to jumper pins.

Connecting a 64-ch DAQ (100-pin HD connector) to a wirewrap board is now easy.  
Disconnecting the DAQ is now easy too, since the CCB can be mounted to the wirewrap board.

If you've ever wanted to make a couple of jumper connections to a cable, CCBs make it easy
and reliable. There is plenty of room for many J-hook connections.

All boards are wired pin-to-pin.

All boards are available with male or female connector (please specify)

Available with 2-row pin connector (shown) or Centronics-style connector.
The Centronics-style connector will not connect to a 2-row pin cable, and vice-versa.
Most DAQ cards and DIO cards use the 2-row pin style.  Please check with the instrument
manufacturer



Type:
68-pin HD        Size:    2.875” x 3.875”        $80 each

Available with 2-row pin connector (shown) or Centronics-style connector.
The Centronics-style connector will not connect to a 2-row pin cable, and vice-versa.
Most DAQ cards and DIO cards use the 2-row pin style.  Please check with the instrument
manufacturer

Example:

68-pin CCB connected to
a 16-ch DAQ.

DAQ boards are neat things to have.  They
have many features, but connecting to them
used to be a bit of a problem.

The CCB makes connecting to individual
lines easy.  Pick the desired lines and use
wire-wrap or a jumper to make a connection.

The CCB can be mounted to a chassis and
the DAQ cable can be connected and
disconnected quickly and easily
