Cirris Adapter System

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 that accept Cirris adapters. Each connector provides a maximum of 32 test points. There are three different adapter sizes:

adapter single  Single-high: adapter occupies one receptacle.

adapter double  Double-high: adapter occupies two vertically adjacent receptacles.

adapter quad  Quad-high: adapter occupies all four receptacles.

Adapter Types

High Voltage Adapters
High Voltage adapters are required in order to perform Hipot testing above 1000VDC or 700VAC.

Grounded Adapters
These adapters include a test point connected to the metal connector shell that make it possible to perform continuity testing to the shell and isolation from the shell.

Replaceable Adapters
These adapters have replaceable mating connectors that are plugged into sockets on the board and held in place with screws allowing you to replace worn connectors rather than purchasing an entirely new adapter.

Testing Your Cirris Adapter

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.

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.
