Combined Test Solutions introduces a new and exciting, low cost wiring aid for fast and easy, guided build of small cable assemblies. The system enables 100% correct wiring at the point of build and has been UK designed and manufactured to exacting standards.
Drawing on over thirty years of experience to perfect its design with input from major global companies involved in MIL Aerospace connector wiring and cabling, CTS created the Cable Hound to be a simple to use, low cost and highly effective assembly aid.
Two modes of use are available; The first is “Select” where an operator chooses a wire number (from 1 to 128) and the device bleeps when the selected wire is probed, the other mode is “Identify” where the operator touches any wire and is then guided, audibly and visually, via the LCD display, to correctly place the wire probed.
Cable Hound can run for many days on an internal, replaceable 9v PP9 battery, or it can be powered by an external, wall plug power supply with a 12v output.
Designed to be resilient, the unit has been rigorously tested and is CE marked. External interference, such as the 7000v “ESD shock test” to any external connections, (all 128 wiring outputs for example), is easily overcome by the array of 30kv protection diodes. Running under 9v DC or 12v DC power means that the unit is operating well below the 48v DC maximum specified in the Low Voltage Directive.
Compact and lightweight, Cable Hound is just 220mm by 140mm wide and 40mm deep weighing <0.5kg.
Priced at only £499 per unit, it is available to order online from the Combined Test Solutions website.
