Abstract

This probe has a floating sleeve 10 which facilitates insertion of a probe through an opening in a plate 12. The probe will pneumatically sense the presence of the plate 12 to enable the first part of the assembly of a circuit module. Absence of the base plate will cause the machine to be inoperable.
