With our cable testers and harness testers, find defective or miswired cables instantly before they damage equipment or waste valuable technician time. CableEye cable testers and harness testers have a unique, patented graphic wiring display to visually pinpoint problems when wiring errors are detected, and offer one-second pass/fail testing for production environments. Quickly locate intermittent connections and identify their position in the cable. Expand CableEye to over 2000 test points for large cables and wiring harnesses, and measure cables of up to 4000 feet in length. With our Model M3U tester, set two resistance thresholds, one for good connections down to 0.3 ohms, and one for isolation up to 10 Megohms. Measure embedded resistors and resistor networks, check the orientation of diodes, and measure diode forward voltage.
An on-line database holds an unlimited number of User cables and includes descriptive notes and label text for each cable. Search the database for a wiring match to a measured cable, or by User part number or descriptive text. High-resolution graphic output on laser and ink-jet printers provides the hard-copy documentation necessary for ISO 9000-certified manufacturing. Print labels simultaneously on a second printer as cables are tested. Use bar-code scanners to read cable part numbers and work orders for high-volume production.
Choose from a wide variety of plug-in connector boards to mate with most standard cables, and easily mount custom connectors for unusual applications. For special applications, use our MiniHook probes to test continuity in connectorless cables, backplanes, and printed circuit boards.
The easy-to-use software can be set up for one-button operation to speed production testing. Unskilled operators need only to press the TEST pushbutton on the fixture to trigger an involved test sequence set up by the quality control engineer, with results automatically logged to disk for later analysis and report generation. Use an optional footswitch for hands-free operation.
For complex wire harnesses and multi-headed cables, label each pin with your own custom text to speed the location of faulty connections.
The CableEye HVX system that permits expanded testing for insulation resistance and dielectric breakdown to meet the industry-standard A620 guidelines for cable and wire harness testing. After checking for opens, shorts, miswires, and resistance limits, the hipot module will apply a user-selectable voltage from 10v to 1500v DC, or 10v to 1000v RMS AC, to each connection group in the cable. Current leakage detected during the high voltage test phase provides a measure of insulation resistance up to One Gigohm, and any leakage current exceeding a preset limit reveals the presence of moisture, flux, or other contamination on exposed contacts.
Our Light Director™ system (patented) provides a new, computer-guided technique for assembling connectors used in aerospace, medical, and other high-reliability applications. This system uses light fibers driven by super-bright LED lamps to individually illuminate target cavities in the connector being assembled. When the technician enters the wire code printed on unconnected wires, or touches a wire connected at the other end, the CableEye software turns on the appropriate fiber, thereby causing a bright, flashing light to project from inside the target cavity guiding the technician to the proper insertion point. Correct insertion is confirmed by the elimination of light from that location, whereas insertion into an incorrect location leaves the flashing light visible.
CableEye cable and harness testers link to the PC using a USB interface, and may be used with laptop PCs for field testing. Models are available in several configurations starting with the M2U-Basic at $1295 for 128 test points, and include all software, cable database, complete User's Guide, and one-year warranty with free technical support.
