Phoenix Contact is offering a tool for fast and easy wire preparation with the Crimphandy. The wires are stripped, fitted with end sleeves, and crimped in one single step. Everything takes less than two seconds.
Automatic cross-section checking, together with robust mechanics, ensure moulding that exceeds norm requirements. The end sleeves are fed automatically out of the internal magazine in strip form. The square mould is suitable for all common conductor types.
Using the device is easy: three LEDs provide information at all times about operating status. The lithium ion battery has a capacity for 2000 crimping procedures and can be fully charged within one hour with the included charging device. The handheld tool is no larger than an electric screwdriver and weighs just 430 g. An easily removable container for leftover insulation ensures a clean working environment and enables use of the device inside of control cabinets and switching systems as well.
