for the LTX / 77 Series Test Systems
Specifications, Features, & Model Numbers:
Signal lines utilize a high quality, multi-strand, PVC-coated wire.
This wire is designed for high flexibility applications, and is
manufactured to Mil-Spec MIL-W-16878-1.
The following signal lines utilize a Teflon-insulated, coax-shielded
wire, manufactured to Mil-Spec MIL-C-17F:
• Audio Voltmeter
• Audio Source
• Audio Source Warp Lines
• Waveform Simulator
Test Head Cables are available in two standard lengths:
• 6 foot cable length (1.83 meters).
• 8 foot cable length (2.44 meters).
• Custom cables can be manufactured to meet specific requirements
Universal Test Head A Cable:
Universal Test Head “A” Cables can be used on either
the TS80 or TS88 Test Station.
Contact Pins & Connectors:
ITT Cannon high quality contact pins are used with ITT Cannon Zero
Insertion Force Connectors. The contact pins are coated with heavy
gold plate (50 micro-inches) over heavy nickel plate (50 micro-inches).
This provides consistent contact integrity as well as long insertion
The cable sleeve harness is comprised of a highly flexible, nylon-braided
hose. A strain at the connector assembly point protects and supports
the harness assembly.
A 156 pin “A or B” cable weighs less than three pounds,
a 50 percent reduction compared to competitive models. Its lightweight,
flexible design greatly reduces system bulkhead wear, and facilitates
hardware interconnect to overhead probes, test handlers, and LTX
All cables are labeled at each end so that the tester side and fixture
side can be easily identified during hardware setups. The label
also includes the part number, serial number, and system type
The cables are designed to provide consistent long-term performance.
In the event that a contact pin became bent or broken, in-house
technical staff can exchange a replacement pin quickly and easily.
