Abstract

A printed circuit board leakage tester had a fixed test head with a configuration shown at 1 in the drawing. As originally designed, the test head 1 was utilized to test the printed circuit board at connector points utilizing both the portion 2 and portions 3 and 4. Portions 3 and 4 were testing connector points which were utilized for terminating resistors. It became necessary to provide tests after terminating resistors had been mounted on the printed circuit board. To avoid the necessity of creating a whole new test head and leakage tester, the test head 1 was redesigned to include lugs 5 on the portions 3 and 4 to thereby make these portions attachable and removable on the base portion 6.
