Suggestions for Kelvin probes??

(1/4) > >>

Andrew_Debbie:
I'm looking for a set of 4-wire Kelvin probes for my Dana 5100 DMM.     It uses Banana binding posts.  Shrouded plugs will not work.

 I have less than £50 invested in the meter.   I can't quite bring myself to spend £100 for a Pomona 6303.      Suggestions?

Make your own?   :-//

Just grab a probe and add two cables, of course you won't ever  compensate the tip, but...

I made my own with some cheap Chinese clips.  Search on ebay.

Don't buy. Wires are connected inside the tip, so you don't compensate for the contact resistance.

My personal favourite (I am not a professional EE) is this:

Sold as "UNI-T compatible". Goes for $25-30 delivered on ebay or $20 on aliexpress. Very solid construction, gold-pated clips, flexible wire.

I have some cheap "traditional" clips from ebay, but the plating matters  :-[

If you need "tip" connection as oppposed to the "crocodile"-style connection, you may consider Mueller BU-7042-F-48-2 (and there is a mating black one):

but the tip spacing is about 4mm and it does not really work for SMD.

I think that the best SMD-style kelvin probe could be two parallel pogo pins. Solder wires, wrap one tip with scotch tape, put botth of them in a heatshrink tube so that they are parallel, put result into an old pen, and you should have good kelvin clips!  Haven't tried it myself though.
