CAMI Research offers cable tester with programmer's interface
ACTON, Mass., 6 April 2008. CAMI Research Inc. in Acton, Mass., is offering its CableEye cable and wire harness tester with a software application for production, incoming inspection, and research.
Included is an optional application programming interface (API) software library that enables control of the tester by an external program. Test engineers may write software for CableEye in Visual Basic, VB.NET, C++, C#, or from software environment that can host CAMI's Active-X software interface.
The API provides a library of software primitives to control basic functions of the tester. This permits engineers to embed the tester's function within a larger system that may include electrical cable lockdown, label printing equipment, pass-fail marking devices, diverter gates, and automatic molding equipment.
Engineers may even write their own custom user interface for the tester for special, simplified applications like a touch-screen display.
The CableEye tester checks cables and wire harnesses for opens, shorts, and miswires, measures diode forward voltage, and tests conduction and isolation resistance against specified thresholds. For more information contact CAMI Research online at www.camiresearch.com.
