CAMI Research Inc. (Acton, MA) manufacturer of the CableEye™ automation-ready cable and harness test system, has released a test interface board for surface mount single and dual row connectors with 0.05” (1.27mm) pitch and up to 34 and 68 pins respectively. Rated to 500Vac/dc, the CB55 may be used on all CableEye models.
A leader in the development of PC-based cable and wire harness test systems, CAMI offers the CableEye suite of products complete with accessories – including auto-detected, plug-in connector boards for fast, convenient set-up and testing of standard cables. There is an extensive and growing stock library of these test fixture boards – several of which are populated with families of connectors, such as the video market’s CB16A for BNC, SMB, SMA, and N connectors. Many boards are sold unconnectorized, a high proportion of which are configured for specific connectors, such as the CB41 through CB44 for Micro D connectors. When pre-populated and pre-configured boards are used, the tester GUI automatically displays a graphic of the connectors and wiring under test. The tester can be readily programmed to do the same for custom boards and fixtures. These boards are designed to fit all CableEye testers.
The CB55, sold without connectors, has surface mount pads for four dual row connectors at 0.05” (1.27mm) pin pitch with up to 68 pins: two each of different row separations. A single row connector can be soldered to any dual row location. The footprints are suitable for many connectors including those by 3M and ERNI. As with all standard CB boards, connectors under test are instantly, automatically detected and rendered on the screen together with the wiring.
Sold as a set of two boards, each test board may be paired with other CableEye adapter boards to accommodate any combination of connectors. An incredibly versatile test system, CableEye testers are expandable to accommodate large and complex harnesses, and users can connect, and configure them in numerous ways — set up an array of QuickMount™ Housings fitted connector boards, plug custom interface cables directly into any of the 64 pin headers on the control and expansion modules, or use a test interface panel, perhaps on a rack-mounted system. Not just a tester, CableEye is a complete cable management system offering features not available on any other cable test equipment, and may be used to test unlimited types of connectors.
All connector boards are included in CableEye’s standard, renewable one-year warranty of the tester for which it was purchased.
Available immediately, a CB55 set is $185 (Item 785) and requires CableEye software release dated June 2019 or later. 68 Pin connector requires an expansion module with HVX-series testers, and is not compatibile with Model M2U-Basic testers. The set includes two ribbon cables for connecting to the expansion module. Certification at 500Vac/dc is available and must be requested at the time of order.

CAMI Research produces expandable and upgradable diagnostic Cable & Harness Test Systems for assembly, prototyping, production, and QC of standard or custom cables. CableEye® Testers display, and document electrical properties such as continuity, resistance, capacitance, dielectric breakdown, insulation resistance, miswires, and intermittent defects.
CableEye is a highly versatile, expandable and upgradable diagnostic and Pass/Fail check Cable and Harness Test System that’s PC-based. It’s used for assembly, prototyping, production, and QC of standard or custom wire cables and harnesses The entire suite of products is powered by the same easy-to-use operating software and, with the help of its signature easy-to-interpret color-coded graphics, instantly identifies not only when there is a fault, but what type of fault and where. There are several models:
Low Voltage: M2U-basic, M2U
For diagnostic and Pass/Fail Testing - Find, display, log, & document: continuity (opens, shorts, miswires), and intermittent connections
Low Voltage: M3U, M3UH
For all of the above plus resistance (contact, isolation, embedded), and diodes (orientation, forward voltage, reverse breakdown).
Low Voltage: M4
For all of the above plus precision resistance (4-wire), and capacitance (twist wire relationship, length of cable, length to break, capacitors).
Low Voltage and High Voltage: HVX, HVX-21
For all as described for M3U, M3UH plus 4-Wire Kelvin Measurement and HiPot (dielectric withstand voltage and insulation resistance). Capacitance measurement (twist wire relationship, length of cable, length to break, capacitors) is an option.
