CB38A for Connectors of 128 Pins or Less
Requires 1 Expansion Module. Not Compatible with M2U-Series Systems


This board supports the mating piece for a circular or rectangular connector that you plan to assemble and is part of our Light Director™ system for guided connector assembly. Click here to learn how the Light Director™ system works. You may purchase the board as a kit of parts to be assembled in-house or have us do the board assembly for an additional charge as described below. Note: This item is sold as a single board with components. For connectors of 64 cavities or fewer, order CB37A (Item 737A). For connectors of 65 to 128 cavities, order CB38A (Item 738A). For a fully functional Light Director guided assembly system, you will also need the following:

1 - Any CableEye test and cable management system Model M3 or above.

2 - Item 728, the AutoBuild™ Guided Assembly software option (software that permits you to program the assembly and operate the LED fibers). If your CableEye system already includes this software, you need not purchase it again.

3 - Item 792, AT&T Natural Voices voice font (high-quality synthetic voice for speech instructions during assembly). If your computer is already provided with a high-quality voice font, you need not purchase this item.

4 - Item 610, optional assembly service for the CB38A board. Using customer-supplied cable schematic or pin assignment table, we will mount the interface fixturing and program your build procedure. Interface fixture not included. ZIF fixture purchased separately (Item 899C - Custom Interface). See photos of custom CB37A applications. You receive a turn-key system ready to use.
