Interchangeable Interface Connectors For Cable Testers

Often operations call for the ability to test a variety of cables that each have different connectors. The Cirris Adapter System allows you to quickly and easily change between different connector types. This provides better throughput on your production line as you can quickly change to your desired connector and start your next test.

Cirris adapters are compatible with all Cirris benchtop testers, including the Easy-Touch® Pro, 4250, 4200, and older benchtop units. At least one adapter is required to make bench-top testers functional. These adapters are designed for quick and easy interchangeability and determine the default test point labeling used by the tester.

Adapter Sizes

Each Cirris benchtop tester and add-on scanner has 128 test points divided into four right-angle receptacle connectors. Each connector provides a maximum of 32 test points. Cirris manufactures adapters in three different sizes that plug into these receptacles.

adapter single  Single-high adapters have one set of right-angle pins and plug into one receptacle on a tester or add-on scanner.

adapter double  Double-high adapters have two sets of right angle pins and plug into two vertically adjacent receptacles on a tester or add-on scanner.

adapter quad  Quad-high adapters have four sets of right-angle pins and plug into all four of the receptacles on a tester or add-on scanner. Quad-high adapters are not compatible with the 1000M, 2000, 5000A, or the original 1000H testers.

Proper Use & Maintenance

The Easy-Touch Pro, 4250, 4200, and other Cirris bench-top testers support interchangeable adapters equipped with a variety of connector interface options. In addition to providing quick and easy changeover, adapters also act as the replaceable wear item on the testers.

To extend the life of the adapters and their mating PV receptacles on the tester:

Align adapters with receptacles during installation. Adapters should be straight and square, never cocked, or wiggled side-to-side during installation or removal.
Always use slidelocks or cover plates during testing to reduce the stress on adapter pins and on the tester’s receptacles.
Visually inspect right-angle adapter pins before each use. Bent pins can damage the tester’s receptacles.
Carefully straighten bent pins using smooth, long-nosed pliers. Never straighten pins using serrated pliers as this produces a saw-like profile that damages receptacles.
Store adapters in a way that protects the connector pins. Do not stack them haphazardly or keep them unseparated in a bin. Cirris adapter trays provide an easy and safe storage alternative.
Replace damaged and worn adapters.

Testing Your Adapters

The mating connectors on adapters wear with use, and as they wear the contact resistance increases. You can test your adapters for high contact resistance and learn if the resistance increase is within an acceptable threshold.
