The HXE4AC Battery Powered Crimp Tool is a handheld, self-contained crimp tool intended to crimp copper and aluminum cable #26 to #10 AWG with DMC "Y" Dies (M22520/5-XX and others).


This tool is equipped with a pre-tensioned pushrod to hold the product in the crimping position (spring-loaded closed) without operator assistance.


Dies in various crimp patterns are also available for insulated and uninsulated terminal lugs, wire splices, and end caps relating to AS7928, MS17143, MS25036, MS25181, MS27429, MS25274, MS20659, M81824, MS21003 through MS21015, and commercial part numbers.  Several power contacts too large for conventional hand tools are also covered by interchangeable dies for the HXE4B.


Hexagonal crimp dies are available in a variety of combinations having single, double, and even triple cavity design.  These dies accommodate most coaxial and shielded connectors and contacts conforming to MIL-PRF-39012, AS39029, and numerous proprietary configurations.



The HXE4C meets the requirements of RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC.
