CB30 Connector Board

Custom Interface Board
for Connectors with up to 128 Pins
NOTE: 256 Test Points Are Required!
Accomodates Panel- and/or Cable-Mounted Connectors, and LIF Test Blocks


This generic board, similar in design to the CB8, accepts a wide range of circular connectors, rectangular connectors, bracket-mounted assemblies, adapter cables, and LIF test blocks. Mount your connectors using supplied standoffs and screws (see Photo 6 below). Any panel-mount circular connector with four mounting holes fits the "X" pattern slots on this board. Mount up to four small circular connectors (mounting hole spacing less than 0.9"), or one large connector (mounting hole spacing less than 2.3"). Holes may be drilled in the board to accommodate other mounting arrangements. Wire pins from the attached connector to labeled pads surrounding the board. Use the numerous small holes around the board for nylon lacing to hold wiring in place. Alternatively, mount dual-row headers of up to 64-pins to the right and left pad footprints, spaced on a 0.1" grid (see Photo 3 below). Use these headers for a custom-designed daughter board that plugs into the CB30 (see Photos 4 and 5 below and CB30A through CB30G) or for flat cables. Instead of a single 64-pin header, attach combinations of smaller headers that have a 0.1x0.1" footprint. A total of up to 128 test points can be accommodated per board.

When the wiring is displayed, a generic dual-row header is shown for the connector. Use the optional PinMap™ fixture editor software (recommended for this board) to choose a better, connector-specific graphic from the CableEye connector library, and to assign custom pin labels. To create a graphic not yet in the connector library, use the Connector Designer ™ connector editor software. Use two CB30 boards together, or a CB30 in combination with any other CB board to accept any connector combination.
