Sold as a set of two boards with expander cable, each CB18C accepts eight shielded RJ45 connectors via quick-change, press-fit connectors. The top deck provides both mechanical support and electrical connection (to the shields). The board may be used to test shielded or unshielded cables, and may be paired with other CableEye adapter boards to accommodate any combination of connectors.
The CB18C is best suited to high test-volume situations i.e. >500 cables/week. Under these conditions, the connector insertion count is high enough to quickly wear out the RJ45 mating sockets. The CB18C allows for rapid, in-house, RJ45 socket replacement, minimizing downtime, and significantly improving longevity of the test board itself. For lower production volumes, the CB18 or CB18A may be preferred.
