CAMI Research Inc. (Acton, MA) has re-released an instructional continuity-testing video series for the field of cable and harness testing. The series covers ‘golden’ cable creation, test, and documentation stages of the manufacture of cables and harnesses. The tutorials include techniques that can also be used with backplanes and components, and guided assembly, and are demonstrated with live examples using CableEye and its latest (v5) software.
For CableEye users, every instruction shown for low voltage testers may be duplicated for high voltage (hipot) testers because the software is a common operating platform shipped with every tester. Currently containing nine videos, in the coming months, the v5 series will be updated to include pin-mapping, barcode-tracking, archival data-logging, test automation, labelling, and the preparation of ISO9001-quality reports.
A leader in development of PC-based Cable & Wire Harness Test Systems for over 20 years, CAMI is also offering two live training sessions on Tuesday, May 9th at the EWPT Expo in Milwaukee: "Beyond Continuity & HiPot Measurements" and “Improving Reliability of Continuity & HiPot Tests”. Advanced registration is required for these sessions. Attendees will be eligible to participate in a drawing to win $500 in CableEye accessories.
The video series and EXPO training is led by Christopher E. Strangio. Christopher is the President and founder of CAMI Research and holds degrees in Electrical Engineering from Villanova University and MIT. A lecturer at the MIT Lowell Institute for twenty years, and author/presenter of a microprocessors multimedia course for the MIT Center for Advanced Engineer Study, he has been awarded two patents, developed the CableEye PC-based cable & harness test system, and is a senior member of the IEEE.
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.
