Cable & Harness Testing Training Training icon

Open Registration Advanced Training at Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo, Milwaukee

Whether the audience constists of operators, technicians, engineers, or managers, CAMI's Cable & Harness Testing training will ensure your staff members are primed to be more creative and productive. Our training offerings are described below. Sessions vary in content and time, as they are dependent on your group size, and level of experience.

Travel-Free Training

Attend professional development courses at your own workplace without incurring the cost of downtime while travelling or the cost of travelling itself. We are pleased to offer you live, interactive, group training. Set up your tester, computer, and speaker phone in the comfort of your own conference room, and we connect remotely to this training tester via remote-support software embedded within your CableEye tester. Truly interactive, at times we will operate your tester by way of demonstration, at other times we will observe and instruct as you do so.

Open Registration Training

Look for our open registration training sessions held at the annual Wire Processing Expo in Milwaukee.

Self-Study

We offer a small library of short instructional videos for you to use at no charge. Each clip describes one basic function of CableEye's software using a live full-size video screen image and includes narration, active mouse highlighting, labeled call-outs, and inserted still images. You may view the videos in any order, although you should watch them sequentially to get the greatest benefit. Check back for new clips periodically.

What is "High Voltage Testing" and why is it important? Wiring Error (missing wire, misconnection, short circuit)
High Resistance (bad crimp, bad solder joint, broken wire)
Leakage between Pins (Causes: moisture, solder flux residue)
Insulation Breakdown (operating voltages above 50Vdc)
Broken Shield (all wires intact, but shield broken or compromised)
IDC Connector Problems
Intermittent Connections
Others (more esoteric)
Kinds of problems that HV testing can detect in cables and how to set-up your tester to detect them. Insulation failure due to impurities in insulation, air gaps, embedded moisture
Inadequate insulation
Insulation failure due to impurities in insulation, air gaps, embedded moisture
Benefits of testing low voltage cables at high voltage What is considered "low voltage" and high voltage?
Detects clearance problems
Finds trace contamination and moisture
Risks of testing at high voltage Can high voltage testing damage a cable or connector?
Is there a danger to the operator?
