High Voltage Cable Test System from CAMI
High voltage cable test system.
Acton, MA — The CableEye® HVX High Voltage Test System from CAMI Research may now be expanded to a maximum of 1024 test points. Users may start with as few as 128 test points and expand the system in increments of 128 points to reach the capacity needed for their test application.

In addition to testing for wiring correctness and connection quality, the HVX system will apply a user-selectable voltage from 10 to 1500VDC, or 10 to 1000VAC rms, 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. The HVX System allows users to meet the industry-standard A620 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.

The system employs numerous measures to ensure operator safety. Each login name must have system administrator authorization to permit enabling of the high voltage function. Once logged in, the operator must confirm awareness of the presence of high voltage by pressing a hardware-enable button for that test session. During testing, a bright red light bar turns on when high voltage is present. If desired, remote test and stop switches are available. Finally, test current that exceeds the maximum 1.5ma causes an automatic halt of that test and cessation of voltage.
