CB18C: shielded RJ45

News Release

CableEye® Quick-Change, Shielded RJ45 Adapter Board, CB18C


Jan 4, 2016

CAMI Research Inc. (Acton, MA) announces a new connector board for its CableEye® cable and harness testing systems. Populated with eight, shielded RJ45 connectors, the boards may be used to test shielded or unshielded cables. Hipot rated to 500 Vdc/ 350 Vac, the CB18C may be used on all CableEye models.

CB18c is a double-layered board, allowing quick changeout of worn test connectors.

A leader in development of PC-based Cable & Wire Harness Test Systems for over 20 years, CAMI offers the CableEye suite of Low and High Voltage products complete with accessories including connector boards. The selection of boards is constantly growing and is currently numbering over 60 – most of which are populated with ‘families’ of connectors.

Sold as a set of two boards with expander cable, each CB18C accepts eight shielded RJ45 connectors via quick-change, press-fit connectors. The top deck provides both mechanical support and electrical connection (to the shields). The board may be used to test shielded or unshielded cables, and may be paired with other CableEye adapter boards to accommodate any combination of connectors.


The CB18C is best suited to high test volume situations i.e. >500 cables/week. Under these conditions, the connector insertion count is high enough to quickly wear out the RJ45 mating sockets. The CB18C allows for rapid, in-house, RJ45 socket replacement, minimizing downtime, and significantly improving longevity of the test board itself. For lower production volumes, the CB18 or CB18A may be preferred.


Connector boards come with CAMI’s standard, one-year warranty, renewable yearly with that of the tester for which it was purchased.  The CB18C includes a kit of 16 spare industry-standard RJ45 sockets. Additional socket kits may be purchased from CAMI Research or a local distributor.

Availability & Domestic US Pricing

Available immediately, a CB18C set is $325 (Item 748C), or $355 (Item 748CH) for a hipot-rated board.

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.
