CableEye Software Introduction Guide


This booklet, formely known as the Applications Guide, provides a self-guided introduction to the CableEye® Cable Tester and Harness Tester. Use it to learn how the software works. In general, we devote one page to each major function. For greater depth, please refer to the CableEye User’s Manual.

This booklet also serves as an excellent training tool for new employees, or as a preview of capabilities that you may not have used previously. To gain the greatest benefit, have the CableEye tester, a set of connector boards, and a test cable available to you while you are reading so you can immediately try the operations we discuss. For convenience, we recommend the CB-T1 training board.

Cable Tester and Harness Tester for Pass/Fail check or diagnostics of continuity (opens, shorts, miswires), intermittent connections, contact and isolation resistance, embedded resistors and diodes.

CableEye® Automation-Ready Cable and Wire Harness Test Systems

CableEye is a highly versatile, expandable and upgradable diagnostic and Pass/Fail check Cable and Harness Test System that’s PC-based. It’s 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 M3Z 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.
