Description

This Panduit CT-1551 controlled cycle crimping tool has a full-cycle ratchet mechanism and two color-coded crimp pockets for proper application of crimp force to wires and connectors in a range of sizes. It is suitable for use with conductors from American Wire Gauge (AWG) #22 to #10 (0.5 to 6 sq. mm) and matching terminals, splices, and disconnects that are insulated with nylon or vinyl. Its red/blue pocket is closer to the tool’s pivot for a reduced crimp effort on connections from #12 to #10 AWG. This crimper has a steel frame with a black oxide finish for strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion, cushioned grips for operator comfort, and a manual release lever for opening the jaws of the tool before completing a full crimp cycle when necessary. This controlled cycle crimping tool is suitable for use in industrial, automotive, and other electrical applications.

Crimpers, also called crimping tools, pinch wire terminals and connectors to wires to prepare them for use in electrical or communications applications. They have nests and indenters that vary in size and shape according to application. Manual crimpers are suitable for portable applications that create small terminal connections while power crimpers use air, electricity, hydraulic power, or a combination of these to aid compression, and are used in high volume applications. Crimpers can be used for applications ranging from manual field repairs to fully automated terminal production operations.

Panduit manufactures electrical and networking products. The company, founded in 1955, is headquartered in Tinley Park, Il.
