BA427 "James" Connection Tester

BA427 James Conection Tester

BA427 "James" 10 Amp Cable Test System for Cables,
Harnesses and Prefabricated Modular wiring looms

BS 8488 is a British Standard which specifies safety requirements, together with associated tests, for prefabricated wiring systems incorporating installation couplers, conforming to BS EN 61535, IEC 61535 with a rated voltage up to and including 500 V A.C. and a maximum operating temperature, not exceeding 70 °C" for permanent connection in fixed installations. BS 8488 (BS8488:2009+A1:2010 ) includes tests to be conducted as part of the manufacturing process.

The cable resistance must be measured by passing a minimum current of 10A for at least 1 second. The 10A current is not available on most cable harness testers so Banair has added a high current test system that fills this gap.

The insulation resistance between all cables and earth must be measured at 500V D.C. for at least one Second and must exceed 20Meg Ohms. The tester includes this facility and will also allow testing at higher voltages for other specifications.

The modular design of this cable harness connection test system provides flexibility so that it will meet both your present requirements and it can expand for your future needs.

The Windows* software is user friendly, using the standard interface that you are familiar with. The cable harnesses and connection test results are displayed clearly on the screen, the table shows resistance values, Pass or Fail results for shorts, continuity and insulation. This allows quick rework and feedback to production of the nature and position of the faults.

All the results are stored in a standard Access database format allowing production and quality control to record test results and to analyse them for AQL.

  • Measures resistance, checks continuity and Shorts.
  • 4 wire testing for accuracy. Measure resistance with a resolution of 1 milli Ohm. Test current of up to 10 Amps.
  • Test insulation to 1000V /1500V DC (model dependent.).
  • Optimised for testing of Cables, Harnesses and Prefabricated wiring Systems.
  • All results saved in Access Database.
  • Printed results sheets and labels.
  • User friendly Windows* software
  • Cost effective modular design.
  • Improved quality control resulting in time and cost savings.
  • Faults identified for reworkt.
  • “Hands free” testing using a footswitch.
  • Maximum number of products stored is only limited by the size of your computer hard disk.
  • Saves test results for Full Quality Control Traceability.
