The 97 78 180 crimping pliers from Knipex are a solid and accurate tool that can be used wherever end sleeves (ferrules) with a fir tree profile are crimped: e.g. when conversion work is conducted on IT in the server room, when crimping end sleeves in control cabinets or domestic electrical systems, such as during the installation of lighting elements. These crimping pliers are insulated by multi-component grips and VDE tested in accordance with insulation standard IEC 60900 / DIN EN 60900.
Custom-fit alignment of the crimp profile to the crimp volume
To achieve a crimp result in line with the standard, the crimp profile must be carefully matched to the material volume of the end sleeve (ferrule) plus wires. This means that here too it is essential to have the appropriate tool. Appropriate is also the key word when selecting the right crimp die. Nine crimp dies with a capacity range of between 0.25 and 16 mm² are available in total. The fir tree profiles are clearly marked to prevent them being wrongly inserted. Thanks to the conical shape of the crimp profiles, the end sleeves (ferrules) are firmly held by the pliers.
Accurate and reliable crimping
Manual force can be measured easily when crimping end sleeves (ferrules) with the 97 78 180 crimping pliers, because the transmission of the pliers has been designed for powerful crimping with little manual force. There is no need to use a great deal of force. Once the correct crimp die has been selected, the end sleeve sits permanently and securely on the conductor.
