Come early to the Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo to attend our all day workshop on May 16, then join us at our booth May 17-18 as we provide hands-on demonstrations of our CableEye® assembly and test systems for cables, wire harnesses, and backplanes.
Try our low voltage and high voltage (HiPot) testers and experience Wire Harness & Cable Connectors Top Products: Simplified User Interface and HVX‑21 (2015), Light Guided Connector Assembly (2017), Test and Cable Management System (2019), Low Voltage Multiconductor Tester (2020, 2022). Sample...
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
A special macro instruction allows you to create image-rich work instructions to also reduce operator mistakes during test set-up. Write the instructions in any language/s you like with any number of images you like. You have complete control of whether the work instructions completely or partially overlap the production-testing screen. Display a pop-up window containing text, photos, interactive buttons, and triggers to open additional resources such as video, schematics, parts lists and BOMs. Include instructions that let barcode readers input data and activate tests.Work instructions can be coupled with operator text to speech conversion to form a totally heads-down workstation.
Choose the exact amount of detail, imagery, language and automation you need to ensure your work instructions and tests are carried out flawlessly.
We offer a large library of stock test interface boards as well as generic boards that can be customized with LIF test blocks, panel- and cable-mounted connectors (top image), and ZIF fixtures for light-guided assembly (bottom image).
Check out the Model M4, low voltage tester. The expandable M4 offers both 4-wire Kelvin measurement and two-wire resistance measurement as standard ... each with a resolution of 20mΩ. Ask us to show you how easy it is to determine wire length and wire twist relationships (in pairs or triplets) with this tester.
Order your HVX-series HiPot tester with the Advanced Measurements option to enjoy the same capabilities as the M4 during low voltage testing.
Cable Build & Automation Stations
Simulating actual manufacturing tasks, you can build a cable, then learn and test it for yourself. At the Automation Station, discover the simplicity of programming your CableEye tester for automation by testing the cable with a macro and experiencing various features and peripherals that might be needed in an automated test environment (e.g. pedal, barcode reader, tower light, label printer etc.).
We will be announcing new product options just prior to the show. Please check our News Release index for this news.
We really enjoy the versatility and capabilities of this tester and haven’t found anything else that matches its functionality.

Advanced Training Workshop
"Improving Reliability of Continuity and HiPot Testing"
A Professional Development Course by CAMI Research
CAMI Research will hold this invaluable professional development one day, two part training session on Tuesday, May 16th at the Wisconsin Center (same location as the EWPT EXPO). Space is limited, so please book early.
NOTE: The exhibition hall is open to the public Wednesday and Thursday.
This informative and interactive workshop is for motivated employees of any company looking to improve product quality and productivity whether their products are cable or harnesses, or products in which cables and harnesses are parts or subassemblies. Cable and harness testing applies to countless applications in Transportation, Aerospace, Energy, Medical Devices, Defense, Scientific R&D, and more. Prior knowledge of basic cable testing is recommended.
Three large screens display live demonstrations of the hardware and software, with an overhead camera capturing action at the tester.
A Certificate of Attendance will be provided to everyone who completes the course.
Stay and meet with our team to discuss your applications.
Date: Tuesday, 16 May 2023
Time: 9:30 am – 11:00 am
1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Presenter: Christopher E. Strangio
Stay and meet with our team to discuss your applications 4 pm – 5 pm.
Each attendee will be eligible to participate in a drawing to win $500 in CableEye accessories. See below for details.
"Risks of Over-Specifying Test Requirements: Testing Shielded Cables at High Voltage"
Target Audience: Those who manage test specification generation or manage/perform testing.
Testing electrical cables at high voltage helps to identify the presence of moisture, solder flux, or contamination — that may have penetrated breaks in the insulation or connector backshells, and ensures that the insulation between wires can sustain temporary voltage excursions higher than the normal operating voltage without breakdown.
The result of a high voltage test typically shows the insulation resistance between wires in the hundreds of megohms or higher. Test specifications requiring insulation resistance of 5 GΩ are not uncommon.
As test equipment suppliers, we frequently hear from our customers who are burdened with over-specified test requirements imposed by their customers. We show that it is not necessary to apply voltage to the shield conductors to accurately test insulation resistance as long as the shields remain at zero volts when the other wires are tested at high voltage. Additionally, we show that specifying testing at higher and higher voltages is neither necessary nor safe to the operator or product, even with technology that has been on the market for many years.
Time: 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Presenter: Christopher E. Strangio

I have used your units for several years, that is, when I worked for electronics manufacturing companies in the past. You have an outstanding product, and I say that, because I've seen my share of testing units in the 36 years that I've been in this business, and yours is the most practical, user friendly machine that I have ever used.

Hear more from our customers ...
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
