Quickly Locate Intermittent Connections

Flex a cable and its connectors during the Continuous Test function to look for intermittent connections. If any are found, you will hear an audible beep and see an error report schematic (see below) with the intermittent connections highlighted.

Checking for Intermittent Connections by flexing the cable
Flex the cable by hand or with an automated fixture.

Checking for intermittent connections by stressing a connector
Flex the connector by hand or with an automated fixture.

The highlighted wire indicates the conductors whose continuity or resistance changed during the test. In this case, there is a intermittently open connection between pin 15 on the left and pin 15 on the right. You may print the result by clicking the "Printer" icon in the main tool bar (not shown).
