ECAD® System 2005

Automatic Testing of Multiple Conductors

(PDF Spec Sheet)

The ECAD® System 2005 is an optional configuration of the  ECAD® System 2002, providing a 15-point switch card and software to perform automatic testing of circuits; expanding wire circuit testing capability from 2 to 15 wires.   It is ideal for quickly running pass/fail tests on large numbers of circuits based on pre-defined test plans. Existing 2002 systems can be converted to 2005 using an Upgrade Kit.

The ECAD® System is a suite of test instruments for both lumped and distributed data for analysis of electrical circuits and/or wiring harnesses. It is completely self contained with a built-in multimeter, impedance meter, TDR, and megohmeter.

The ECAD® System provides the lowest path to regulatory compliance with Regulatory Guide RG-1.211 and Draft Guide DG-1240.
