RS PRO Ratchet Crimping Tool for Bootlace Ferrules

RS PRO Ratchet Crimping Tool – Overview

From RS PRO a durable, reliable and easy to use hand operated crimping tool made from high-quality materials designed to crimp bootlace ferrules. This hand tool consists of two handles with a non-slip ergonomic design for comfortable use, a ratchet mechanism, and a die assembly. The die assembly has just one cavity that is used for the whole of the wire cross section range. The wire end ferrules are fed into the side of the tool and a trapezoidal crimp is produced.

Ratchet Mechanism

The ratchet is pre-set to a specific force and remains locked until the handles of the tool are fully closed and the dies are bottomed. The handles cannot be opened until a full crimping cycle is achieved therefore preventing partial crimps. Once the cycle is complete the handles re-open. The ratchet also enables the operator to repeatedly produce consistent, high-quality crimps. This hand crimp tool also features a ratchet release mechanism which releases the tool handle in the event of obstructions or miscrimps

Features and Benefits:

• Durable and easy to use
• Ratchet mechanism ensures that full crimp cycle is achieved
• Ratchet release mechanism
• Ergonomically designed, non-slip handles for comfortable use
• One die cavity for entire wire cross section range

The Importance of a High Quality Crimp
When a crimping tool is used on a terminal, two crimps take place at the same time. One is the electrical connection between conductor and terminal. The other is the insulation crimp which provides strain relief against vibration and tension. It is important that the electrical connection is gas-tight without any voids between the wire strands and the terminal. If there any voids present, then corrosion can occur causing resistance and excessive heat which damages the electrical connection. Using a good quality crimping tool will ensure that a full, gas-tight crimp is produced preventing future deterioration of the electrical connection and insulation breakage.

Typical Applications
Crimping tools can be used for a variety of applications:-
• Maintenance & repair
• Electrical Installations
• Cable assemblies


What Terminals can this Crimping Tool be used with?
This hand crimping tool is designed for crimping bootlace ferrules with and without plastic collars with a wire size range of 0.5 sq mm to 4 sq mm that conform to DIN 416228 T.1 and T 4

What is DIN 416228?
The DIN 416228 standard describes the allowable dimensions and tolerances of the plastic collar and metal sleeve of the wire end ferrule, ensuring the quality of the connection
