Weidmuller’s PZ 10 HEX and PZ 10 SQR Crimping Tools
Weidmuller’s new crimping tools provide precise results for secure connections.
Weidmuller introduces two new high-quality, self-adjusting crimping tools, the PZ 10 HEX for hex-shape crimps and the PZ 10 SQR for square-shape crimps. These new crimp tools create stable electrical crimped connections that meet the requirements of DIN 41641-1 for solderless crimping and exceed the pull-out forces stipulated by DIN 46228 1-4 and UL 486 A and B. Both the PZ 10 HEX and PZ 10 SQR can help you achieve higher crimping forces and crimping density while requiring less manual or operating force. When used with Weidmuller ferrules, the crimped contact is UL-certified.
The new PZ 10 HEX and PZ 10 SQR crimping tools are suitable for wire-end ferrules, with or without plastic collars, for a cross-section range of AWG 26 to AWG 8, so there is no need to swap tools when crimping wires of various gauges. Hexagonal or square wire-end ferrules provide a more secure connection than other crimping forms for screw, spring, or direct plug-in clamping systems. The shape of square-crimped wire-end ferrules offers optimal protection against twisting at the contact point. Weidmuller developed the PZ 10 SQR precisely for this purpose. The PZ 10 HEX allows for wire insertion in the clamp from any orientation, and hexagonal crimps, with a somewhat rounded crimp form and extremely low maximum diameter, are ideal for confined clamping spaces.
Weidmuller’s new crimp tools offer precise and repeatable crimping. An automatic stop prevents the tools from being opened unintentionally during crimping to eliminate costly errors and ensure consistent crimping quality. The automatic stop may be released at any time if there is a malfunction. Both new tools feature an ergonomic handle design. The tool shape, material, grip, and surface structure are optimally designed for the rigor of everyday use and offer safe and comfortable functionality.
