CAMI Research Inc. (Acton, MA) announces a new, dual-purpose connector board for training new users on its CableEye ® cable and harness testing systems, and for performing tester system verification.
Demonstrated at the 2015 Wire Processing Technology Expo, the CB-T1 is a great way to familiarize new employees with CableEye test systems during their orientation. Training may be self-directed with this tool.
Populated with a few common connectors, the board allows trainees to methodically experience how the system responds to opens, shorts, miswires, diodes, resistance, and intermittent connections while at the same time learning to operate a CableEye test system.
The adapter board comes with identification LEDs for each connector that may be used to show the trainee operator which connector s/he must connect.
As a system verification tool, the CB-T1 allows customers to verify the tester is working properly by quickly sampling the full spectrum of fault detection without use of example fault cables. The limitation of physical fault cables is that typically one example is needed for each fault. Use of the CB-T1 will provide a faster and more through verification process. The verification cable itself may be learned on first use, and loaded thereafter prior to going through a simple fault simulation procedure.
Customers may also use the board for demonstrating CableEye tester functionality to their own customers as a way of creating a quick impression on production quality either during an audit, or during contract negotiations.
Rated to 250Vdc/200Vac, the CB-T1 may be used on all CableEye Testers. The CB-T1 is available as a SINGLE board for $195 (Item 800), and includes cable and instructions.
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 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.
