5 - These adapter cables which have Virginia Panel ZIF connectors as the mating part connect directly to the CableEye tester, each using multiple 64-pin AmpModu connectors. No CB boards are involved. This is a perfect example of test cables with connectors too large to mound directly on a board.
Although we show an 896-point M3U tester here, these AmpModu adapter cables could be just as well be directly connected to a CableEye HVX High Voltage Test System and run at test voltage of up to 1500vDC
6 - With the help of four QuickMount housings (catalog Item 712), this 640 test point M3U can mount up to 10 CB boards simultaneously, two on the base unit and eight on the QuickMount Housings.
When using standard CableEye CB plug-in boards (or CB boards of your own design), the boards may be mixed and matched in any order with this truely plug-and-play system to instantly obtain the connector interface you need. Note that if you learn a cable with the boards in one arrangement, and later test an identical cable with the boards plugged into different locations, the CableEye software figures this out automatically, so you need not pay attention to the exact locations where boards are connected.
7 - We designed the black board you see in the front of this photo as a custom-transition board that adapts six 68-pin connectors to eight 64-pin headers that attach to a customer's 768-point CableEye tester using standard 64-conductor flat cable. The base unit and first expansion module are not used in this application.
Flat cables have the advantages of being inexpensive to build and easily folded to adapt to situations like this.
