Includes the VS-3 hand crimping tool, carrying case and a crimp height gauge for Picabond connectors. The tool can be hand held or used in the optional AMP Tool Holder 229755-1.
The features of the hand tool and their functions are as follows:
- Movable die (anvil) and two fixed dies (crimpers) - crimp the connectors.
- Two wire supports - position and hold the wires in the crimpers.
- Wire cutter - performs two functions. First, it locates the connector on the anvil, and second, it cuts excess wire during the crimp cycle.
- Moving handle (with quick-take-up lever and CERTI-CRIMP ratchet) - pushes connector into crimping dies and ensures a highly uniform, finished connection every crimp cycle.
- Fixed handle - provides support during crimp cycle and, when applicable, can be held securely in tool holder.
