Featured Products: Flexcon Test Connectors

Whenever connector reliability is important, you’ll find NASA-approved FLEXCON text connectors. Flexcons are second to none in continuity, signal and voltage testing, the first choice for demanding conditions and critical testing of computers, communications and data systems, space vehicles, aircraft, missiles and other military equipment.

Available in various sizes, pins and sockets for hard-to-reach places, each connector is insulated to insure accurate and reliable testing.  Even in the tightest spaces, Flexcon connectors provide accessibility without damaging pins.  Flexcon connectors are durable and easy to use, each test connector is good for up to 50 bends with induction solder, not crimped.  We offer three hookup options: permeant hookup by capturing the wire down the barrel; in the side, capturing the wire with a screw in the barrel; or in the barrel itself through an interchangeable converter on a Banana Plug that allows you to change sizes quickly and easily.

Flexcon connectors have been in use for over 50 years and are NASA approved. In fact, Flexcon connectors have been a part of many manned and unmanned space flights. Flexcon test connectors can be found in use with many leading commercial airlines as well as missile testing and other military applications.

Flexcon-All (2)


  • Pin and socket sizes 22, 20, 16, 12 and 8 conform to MIL Spec dimensions
  • Heavy silver and/or gold contact plating
  • Bi-axial lead attachment feature provides four methods of connection:
    • Barrel lead entrance with set screw in side.
    • Side lead entrance with set screw in barrel.
    • Banana plug terminated test lead plugs into .161 I. D. FLEXCON receptacle.
    • Combination of 2 and 3 for multiple pick-off signals and voltages.


  • FLEXCON shaft bends when subjected to accidental side loads during plug-in to prevent mating connector contact and/or insert damage.
  • Easy adjacent contact plug-in by bending FLEXCON’s shaft.
  • Completely insulated for “live circuit” testing. Safe adjacent contact plug-in even with power ON.
  • Pin contact FLEXCONS can be used as test gauges for checking corresponding size socket contact’s relative retention quality.
  • Probe 8-pin and 11-pin relay sockets with 590-12P and 590-12S.
  • Probe 7 or 9-pin miniature sockets and tubes with 620-20P and 620-20S.
  • Use 590-16S for .045 or .062, 620-20S for .036 and 620-22S for .025 wire wrapped terminal test connectors.
