Acton, MA, United States, 2010/04/20 - CAMI Research, Inc. will be exhibiting its complete line of cable and wire harness test equipment at the Wire Processing Technology Expo trade show on May 12-13 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Visitors to Booth 1715 where the CAMI systems may be seen will receive a 10% discount coupon for the purchase of any new CableEye™ tester. Also available will be a new 36-page CableEye catalog containing a wide range of cable and harness test equipment for quality control and production test.
Among the new items on exhibit will be a high voltage test system based on CAMI's very successful M3U tester. The HVX™ hipot tester starts at 128 test points capacity and may be expanded up to 512 points by the addition of 128-point expansion modules. Customers now using M3U low voltage testers may expand their existing system by purchasing just the high voltage module. The new HVX system has been tested by an independent compliance testing laboratory and meets all safety and electromagnetic compatibility requirements for the CE mark. The new system comes with a one-year warranty.
After checking for opens, shorts, miswires, and resistance limits, the new HVX 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.
This new high voltage test capability allows users to meet the industry-standard A-620 guidelines for cable and wire harness testing. The system also produces archival-quality reports for each cable tested showing the test voltage, leakage current, and insulation resistance for each wire group, and clearly denotes PASS or FAIL at the top of the report.
Also on exhibit will be some of the 45 different connector plugboards available for CableEye. These boards, each with multiple connectors, serve as personality modules that adapt the tester for many different cable types. Recently added boards cover Micro D connectors and Elco/Edac Rack-and-Panel connectors.
Show visitors will see CableEye's latest software demonstrated. This software is capable of measuring and displaying the graphic wiring diagram of any cable or harness connected to the tester, measuring resistors, diodes, and wire resistance. Trace resistance to compensate for the innate resistance of fixturing may now be automatically subtracted from measurements to provide a more accurate reflection of the device under test. The software also offers an extensive cable database, report and label printing, custom connector interfaces, guided assembly, and many other advanced features. The latest software is available at no charge to customers with active warranties who may contact us for download instructions.
