CAMI Research Inc. (Acton, MA), manufacturer of the CableEye ® automation-ready cable and harness test system, announces release of the CB53 in the New Year. The CB53 is a special connector motherboard that will convert a top-mounted standard 64-pin connector board test fixture into a 4-wire test fixture. Conversion is valid when the UUT connects directly into the standard board rather than via a flying lead or adapter cable and eliminates the need to otherwise create custom 4-Wire test fixtures. The CB53 fits all CableEye models and is rated for HiPot testing at 800 Vdc, 500 Vac. 4-Wire resistance measurement is available for models M4 and HVX-series CableEye testers.
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 – most of which are populated with families of connectors, such as the audio market CB19. When pre-populated 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.
Sold as a set of two boards, each CB53 accepts any other standard 64-pin‑configured board in a stacked configuration. The converter board plugs directly into the 64‑pin header of the tester and is sandwiched between the tester and the main connector board. 4‑Wire conversion is valid when the UUT connects directly into the main board, rather than via a flying lead or adapter cable. In addition to the latest CableEye software, the CB53 requires a tester with 4‑wire measurement capability, a mating connector board, and an expansion module. As with any 4‑wire measurement, twice the number of test points is required than for standard 2‑wire measurement, therefore an expansion module is necessary. Ribbon cables connect the CB53 to each bank of the expansion module.
All connector boards are included in the standard, renewable one-year warranty of the tester for which it was purchased.
Available January 2019, a CB53 set is $255 (Item 783) and requires the latest CableEye software as of Jan 2019, an expansion module, and a tester with 4-Wire measurement capability. The set includes two ribbon cables for connecting to the expansion module.

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 testers are highly versatile, expandable and upgradable diagnostic and Pass/Fail check Cable and Harness Test Systems that are PC-based. They are 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.
Low Voltage M2 Series
For diagnostic and Pass/Fail Testing - Find, display, log, & document continuity (opens, shorts, miswires, intermittent connections).
Low Voltage M3 Series
For all of the above plus resistance (contact, isolation, embedded), and diodes (orientation, forward voltage, reverse breakdown).
Low Voltage M4 Series
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 Series
For all as described for M3 plus HiPot (dielectric withstand voltage and insulation resistance). 4-Wire Kelvin Measurement and Advanced Measurement Options (capacitance, twist wire relationship, length of cable, length to break, capacitors) are available.
