CAMI/CableEye

CAMI/CableEye Test System for Cables and Wire Harnesses

CableEye tester for cables and cable harnishes

  • CableEye accompanies you in all "life phases" of your cables. From the first design of new cables and prototypes to production, quality control/final test and daily use when reliable cables are required.
  • CableEye is modular expandable and future-proof. From 128 up to 2560 test points. For testing of connection/continuity/line break, cable allocation/miswiring, resistance, insulation resistance, sporadically occurring errors and much more.
  • CableEye provides the perfect test protocols for quality assurance and quality control.

Compatibility Between CB Boards and CableEye Testers

A green checkmark denotes that the CB board is compatible with the tester displayed in the column.
A red x denotes that the CB board is NOT compatible with the tester displayed in the column.
A number in the "Expansions Required" column means that the tester requires the number of expansion modules displayed to use the board.
Only for the HVX High Voltage testers, the "Voltage Rating" column displays the maximum voltage that the board can sustain without dielectric breakdown.
