Safety is the top priority for cable and harness shops. Practices are put in place to protect workers from all sorts of hazards. Whether being injured from improper use of tools or materials to being safe around electricity, cable and harness shops want to make sure no one is hurt in any way.
Whether you are new to automated testing or looking to upgrade your test process, buying the right tester is one of the important decisions you must make. If you’ve started looking at cable testers, you may notice two distinct categories: low voltage and high voltage. The following information may help you decide whether low voltage is sufficient for your testing or if you should consider a high voltage tester.
To get accurate results, your automated testing equipment must be calibrated. An uncalibrated machine can skew results and damage your company. With this in mind, how do you know if your tester is calibrated correctly?

You’ve spent time and money building a cable. After testing the cable on your Cirris test system, the results appear on the screen. What do those results mean? Is there an error? Can you fix it, or is your cable useless?
Chrysler is recalling over 400,000 vehicles. This may not sound like a big deal compared to other recent automotive recalls, but this one caught our attention at Cirris.
Every harness manufacturer has a different process for building and testing products. Some have found success with the guided assembly method using Cirris CR testers. Guided assembly eliminates mistakes by testing each connection at the moment of contact. Constant testing means the cable is free of common errors such as miswires.
Every tester Cirris builds meets requirements established by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. This ensures all wires, cables, and harnesses are tested to the same quality level.
There are accessories and other items that you will need to purchase before your Cirris Tester is ready to use. Some of these items come standard with the tester. Other products are not necessary for testing but can provide a better testing experience.
When you run into a problem you cannot solve, tech support has the answers to help you resume testing as soon as possible. The first step is contacting Tech Support.
Think of your favorite car. Drool over the sleek and shiny outside. Marvel over the leather, hand stitched interior. Rave about acceleration and speed. At no point do you think about the cables and harnesses that power the car. You don’t think about wire gauge or type of flux used. No one walks up to a new car and says, “Those are some nice cables.”
