On-Screen Rich Text Work Instructions

CableEye ® Testers Display Rich Text Work Instructions and Convert Operator Text to Speech


Feb 26, 2019

CAMI Research Inc.  (Acton, MA), manufactures the CableEye® automation-ready cable and harness testers used for assembly, prototyping, production, and QC of standard or custom wire cables and harnesses in countless applications such as Transportation, Energy, Medical Devices, Defense, Scientific R&D, Telecom, and more. Every CableEye tester ships with a comprehensive software package that provides test functions, graphic wiring display, connectors database, reporting, data logging, automation scripting and many more features. In addition to being used to automate the test itself, this out-of-the-box automation scripting lets managers generate and display rich text work instructions with images. Work instructions can be coupled with operator text to speech conversion to form a totally heads-down workstation.

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.

Automation with a CableEye system is simple yet powerful. Included with every tester, CableEye software offers out-of-the-box automation capabilities with both Macros and Javascript scripting languages. Macros offer the simplest, easiest language on the market.

By completely automating the test process after the operator attaches a cable, you eliminate any chance that testing or documentation will differ from one cable to the next. Create image-rich work instructions to also reduce operator mistakes during test set-up. To do this, you will need the RTF NOTE... macro instruction which displays a popup window with your specified rich text file (see photo for example). You have complete control of whether the work instructions completely or partially overlap the production-testing screen. Work instructions can be coupled with operator text to speech conversion to form a totally heads-down workstation.

Exacting Reporting Standards

CableEye software allows customers to meet the most exacting reporting requirements of government-contracted and ISO 9000-style certified companies.

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.
