Wedge connector tool
Description of wedge connector tool
Wedge connector tool crimp tool is used for installing CRC series wedge connector,CRC-1,CRC-2,CRC-3 and CRC-4.
CRC-TUA(-1-2) for CRC-1,CRC-2
CRC-TUB(-3-4) for CRC-3,CRC-4
1.Fixed handle 2.Free handle 3.Cylinder body 4.Oil pump 5.Pivot screw 6.Unloading device 7.Clamping head 8.piston
How to use it
1.According to the wedge connector “C” sharp body code ,Then Choose the tools type.CRC-1, CRC-2 should use TUA; CRC-3,CRC-4 should use TUB.
2.Move oxider layer by brush on the BARE conductor, if the conductor are insulated conductor,should strip the insulated coating.
3.Put Conductor on ‘C’ Sharp, then put inside the wedge inner parts,till the wedge inner parts marking line covered by ‘C’ body, if not tight enought, you can use hammer to put wedge inner part more tight.(if use hammer , should not use strong power) then Put wedge connector and conductor into the tools.
4.Press free handle to make the wedge connector FULL tight.full tight mean the ‘C’ body edge on same level with wedge inner parts.
5.After FULL tight, rotate unloading device in anticlockwise. then the piston back to before installing.
!Read it before you use!
How to Choose the wedge connector?
1.Check what kind of conductor will be use. usually have follow combination:
AAAC to AAAC
ACSR to ACSR
AAAC to ACSR
XLPE to XLPE
2.Wedge size will be different for different combination. Please CHECK the conductor type when use the connector!
3.Check the section size of conductor.
CROP wedge connector size according to SQ. MM
Ex.: 25 mm2 AAAC to 35mm2 AAAC =( A.W.G : #4 AAAC to #2 AAAC )
