Conductive Rubber Shorting Pads for Bed of Nails Testers

      Disclosed is a method of performing system continuity
diagnostics that virtually elminates the false error caused by poor
contact between test probes and shorting plates.

      In the figure, the shorting plates 2 are replaced or covered
with conductive rubber shorting pads 3.  The conductive rubber is
usually used as conductive gasket material.

      The probes 1 are compressed to the shorting plates or
conductive rubber shorting pads during diagnostics.  The shorting
plate to test probe creates maximum wipe action by conforming to the
test probe end configuration.
