CAMI Research Inc. (Acton, MA), a 2015 Wire Harness & Cable Connector Top Product winner, reports that a customer has successfully tested simultaneous, multipoint continuity in a two-mile long, multicore cable (rated at 10Ω/1000ft) using a CableEye M3UH tester.
Priced in the low thousands range, the test has more traditionally been carried out with testers x10 more expensive.
New to the product line in 2015, the M3UH continuity tester offers a down-shifted resistance threshold (viz. 0.1Ω to 5MΩ ±0.1Ω) compared to that of the M3U.
By similarity, the same outcome is achievable with model M3U.
All CableEye models, including HiPot, have out-of-the-box options to adjust dwell time to compensate for ineherent cable capacitance thus enabling measurement of ‘long’ cables.

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.
