New product: TA514 Professional breakout lead set



Product news

We are delighted to announce that we have recently rolled out our new TA514 Professional breakout lead set that represents a significant upgrade to our previous PQ070 kit, which it replaces.

The kit comprises the following 19 different sized sets of 4 universal breakout leads and a set of back-pinning probes:

- 14 sets with flat blade connectors in different sizes (0.6 mm,  0.8mm,  0.84mm, 1.0mm, 1.2 mm, 1.3mm, 1.5mm, 2.0 mm, 2.3 mm, 2.8 mm, 4.8 mm, 6.0 mm, 8.0mm, 8.3mm).
- 4 sets with round pins in different sizes (1.5 mm, 2.0 mm, 3.5 mm
and 4.0 mm).
- 1 set with square pins in one size (0.63mm).
- Right-angle back-pinning probes with hard tip 0.7mm outer diameter with
300 mm extension lead.

With all the connectivity options it provides, the kit improves your chances of making a sound connection between the terminals of any connector you might encounter.

Each breakout lead within each set of four is colored to match one of the standard PicoScope channel inputs (i.e. blue, red, green or yellow) to help you keep track of connections and channels.

The leads’ connectors are designed to be minimally small and easy for you to maneuvre into tight spaces, even when the terminals are close together, yet they maintain sufficient rigidity to be easily guided into position.

The individual breakout leads clip together into a single block for ease of handling and help keep your cable routing neat and tidy when you have several leads connected to adjacent terminals.

Typically, you use breakout leads to take circuit voltage measurements. You can also use them to extend part of a circuit to improve the access available to other probes, such as current clamps. However, when a connector is particularly inaccessible (for example, when it cannot be sufficiently separated without the removal of other components), you have the option of using the right-angle back-pinning probes included in this set.

The roll-up, Pico-branded, pouch has individual sections for each breakout lead set and the right-angle back-pinning probes to help you quickly find the required items and keep them organized when they are not in use. In addition, a pouch handle helps with portability, particularly when you have your hands full with other test equipment.

You can purchase the new TA514 Professional breakout lead set on our website.

Note: The individual sets of test leads are not available for purchase separately.
