The TP-102 series of printed circuit mounted, test point jumpers provides a significantly lower cost and superior function to that of conventional “turret” type terminals in board level, “trouble shooting” applications. With only two part number types, the TP-102 series covers the complete range of hole diameters most commonly employed for “turret” terminals; the need for costly re-design of circuit board art work is eliminated. Spring tempered, flared leads allow sufficient tension positioning in the hole during wave soldering, thereby eliminating the costly staking or secondary soldering operations normally encountered with “turret” terminals. The unique loop profile of the TP-102 series offers a superior and positive anchor for commonly used, spring loaded test probes and clips. The economies and single hole mounting requirement of this design permit greater numbers of test point locations in p.c. board applications at much less expense than previously used “turret” terminals. The TP-102 series devices are formed from phosphor bronze alloy wire. Due to the spring temper and flared lead design, only two styles are necessary to cover mounting hole diameters from .067″ to .078″ and .112″ to .116″.
