97 68 145 ACrimping Pliers for wire ferrules
- For crimping wire ferrules according to DIN 46228 parts 1 + 4 in the range from 0.25 up to 2.5 mm²
- Crimping in marked trapezoidal dies for reliable connections between the sleeve and the conductor
- Vanadium electric steel; forged, oil-hardened
Position and permanently crimp end sleeves according to DIN 46228 Part 1 + 4
Also for work on live parts – e.g. in IT and on domestic electrical systems
The 97 68 145 A crimping pliers from Knipex are a solid and accurate tool that can be used wherever end sleeves (ferrules) with a trapezoidal profile are crimped. The trapezoidal-shaped crimped end sleeves are especially suitable in the terminal strips on control systems due to the usually high and slim supports. The Knipex crimping pliers are also used in domestic electrical systems and industrial environments, where work on live parts can occur frequently. With the VDE tested multi-component grips, they comply with insulation standards 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. Four crimp dies of between 0.25 and 2.5 mm² are available in total. The trapezoidal cross sections are clearly marked to ensure that the end sleeves (ferrules) are inserted correctly.
Accurate and reliable crimping
Manual force can be measured easily when crimping end sleeves (ferrules) with the 97 68 145 A crimping pliers. Once the correct crimp die has been selected, after crimping the end sleeve sits permanently and securely next to the conductor.
