Abstract

In any hand plug station for an electronic testing system, the operator must depress an actuating button to commence the tester's operation. In many hand plug testers, the operator must maintain the start button in the depressed state for a significant portion or the entire duration of the test, until an indicator such as an end of test light goes on.
