CAMI Research Inc. (Acton, MA) has released a USB Type-C test interface board for its CableEye cable and harness testing systems. A daughter board, populated with two USB-C female connectors, it allows users to continuity-check USB Type-C terminated cables using the CableEye tester while seeing the connectors-under-test rendered graphically. The CB26U fits all CableEye models.
A leader in development of PC-based cable and wire harness, continuity, resistance and hipot test systems for over 20 years, CAMI offers the CableEye suite of products complete with accessories – including “connector boards”. The selection of these test fixture boards is constantly growing and is currently numbering over 60 – most of which are populated with ‘families’ of connectors. When pre-populated boards are used, the tester GUI automatically displays a graphic of the connectors under test.
Sold as a set of two boards, each CB26U accepts two USB Type-C connectors. In addition to the latest CableEye software, it requires the CB26 small-frame motherboard (Item 756) for operation, and plugs into one of two available slots – two USB-C-connectors can be tested simultaneously. The CB26 (with CB26U) attaches to the tester like a regular connector board.
Connector boards are included in the standard, renewable one-year warranty of the CableEye tester for which it was purchased.
Available immediately, a CB26U set is $185 (Item 756U), and requires a CB26 set (Item 756) for mounting and the latest CableEye software.

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.
