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.

This generic custom interface board accepts a wide range of circular or other connectors and accommodates LIF test blocks and bulkhead and/or cable-mounted mating connectors. While a bulkhead connector mounted directly to the board produces a more compact interface, a cable-mounted solution would be preferred if the test cable consists of heavy-gauge wire or is bulky. Any panel-mount circular connector with four mounting holes fits the “X”-pattern slots. Total pin count cannot exceed 64.

Panel- and Cable-Mounted Connectors, and LIF Test Blocks

Connector pins are wired to labeled pads surrounding the board. Bare area provided for custom labeling such as a bar code. Use two CB8H boards together, or a CB8H in combination with any other CB board or built-in connector to accept any cable type.

Sold as a set of two boards, each test board may be paired with other CableEye adapter boards to accommodate any combination of connectors. Incredibly versatile, 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 with 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, a CableEye test system 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 CAMI’s standard, renewable warranty of the tester for which it was purchased.

CableEye ® Automation-Ready Cable and Wire Harness Test Systems

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.
