CAMI Research Inc. (Acton, MA), a 2015 Wire Harness & Cable Connector Top Product winner, reports that a customer has successfully tested simultaneous, multipoint continuity in a two-mile long, multicore cable (rated at 10Ω/1000ft) using a CableEye M3UH tester.
Priced in the low thousands range, the test has more traditionally been carried out with testers x10 more expensive.
New to the product line in 2015, the M3UH continuity tester offers a down-shifted resistance threshold (viz. 0.1Ω to 5MΩ ±0.1Ω) compared to that of the M3U.
By similarity, the same outcome is achievable with model M3U.
All CableEye models, including HiPot, have out-of-the-box options to adjust dwell time to compensate for ineherent cable capacitance thus enabling measurement of ‘long’ cables.

CAMI Research produces expandable and upgradable diagnostic Cable & Harness Test Systems for assembly, prototyping, production, and QC of standard or custom cables. CableEye® Testers display, and document basic electrical properties such as continuity, resistance, dielectric breakdown, insulation resistance, miswires, and intermittent defects.
