Cirris: Cirris CR Modular Bench Top Cable Tester

Guided assembly that tests while you build.


Connect multiple Cirris CR testers together for complex assemblies with thousands of points. The system supports guided assembly with on-screen connector images highlighting proper cavity positions, guidance LEDs on the assembly board, and immediate graphical and audible feedback to catch errors as they occur.

Compact Tester

  • Up to 32,000 test points (256 pts/box)
  • Base unit weighs less than 3 lbs
  • “Daisy-chain” architecture reduces length and complexity of interface cabling
  • User-selectable pass/fail resistance thresholds from 0.1 Ω to 500 kΩ.
  • Tests resistors, diodes, and capacitors.
  • 4-Wire “Kelvin” testing capable
  • Versatile Test Modes
    • Sequential build/test
    • Random build/test
    • Single test
    • Continuous test


  • Step-by-step process with graphical prompts through Cirris easy-wire software
  • On-screen graphical representation of connectors and blinking LEDs
  • Select a graphic connector from a library of over 270 connectors
  • Create connector details to store for use in multiple test programs
  • Instructions can be learned from a sample product, imported from wire list data, or imported manually

Guided Assembly

  • Smart-Lights capable
  • Audible and Visual Results
  • During guided harness assembly an audible tone sounds each time a connection is made.
  • LED Guided Assembly
    • Each LED is driven by 2 regular test points and no special electronics are required.
    • Green blinking LEDs indicate the next two points to be terminated.
    • Red blinking LEDs indicate a miswired connection.
