Are these IC clip cables compatible with the current Huntron Trackers? The company says that they are but I want to make sure.



Hi Achcee,
The cable you linked will work with the Tracker 3200S (64 pin front panel headers).
Here are others that work as well --

Tracker 2800S 8 pin TH clip/cable:
Tracker 2800S 8 pin SOIC clip/cable:
Tracker 2800S 20 pin TH clip/cable:
Tracker 2800S 20 pin cable:
Tracker 3200S 20 pin clip/cable:
Tracker 3200S 20 pin cable:
Tracker 2800S 40 pin clip/cable:
Tracker 2800S 40 pin cable:

Or just go here to see them all:

I am glad to see Warwick Test Supply offer these cables since Huntron no longer does (long story... don't ask).

The most important troubleshooting tool is your eyes.


Or you could buy some 64-way IDC ribbon cable connectors (
And some 64-way ribbon cable (
And make up your own test leads with what ever you want to test on the other end. in the U.S.A. stock Farnell parts as above, and same part numbers.

Digi-Key & Mouser also stock these parts, but different Part Nos.

I think I posted this in some other thread here but here is the link again to the IC clip cable construction drawing:
The most important troubleshooting tool is your eyes.


A bench vice is very useful to gently squeeze the two halves of a 64-way IDC socket on a ribbon cable.
But taking care that the individual wires line up with the jaws of the IDC socket.


Pretty fancy fixture, jvthorsley! All I really need are cables to use with through-hole IC clips. Looks like the ones from Warwick will work. Thanks.


My contribution, just to show that you can connect what ever you like to a Tracker!


Wonderful ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D
Thank you jvthorsley and Admin.
I think I'm going to make my own unless I get a government contract :-))))
