The Ratcheting Terminal Crimper SN-01BM is a low cost crimping tool designed to crimp smaller uninsulated terminals such as JST or Dupont.
- Ratcheting Terminal Crimper SN-01BM
KEY FEATURES OF RATCHING TERMINAL CRIMPER SN-01BM:
- Ratcheting design ensures full crimp cycle is completed
- Crimps many different small connectors including JST, Dupont and similar connectors
- Handles 28 to 20 gauge wire
These ratcheting crimping pliers have a crimping range of 28-20AWG wire. They are designed for use with smaller uninsulated terminals including male or female XH2.54/3.96, PH2.0, PX, KK254, JST, Dupont and many molex type terminals in order to make custom cables or jumpers.
Ratcheting style crimpers ensure consistent crimping pressure as they must be cycled through their full range for the jaws to crimp and then release the terminal.
The wire should have approximately 1/8″ of insulation stripped before crimping. When inserting the terminal for crimping, the wire end should be position on the the side of the jaws with the AWG markings. It is often easiest to partially close the jaws onto the terminal to hold the terminal in place before inserting the wire and then completing the crimping action.
Our Evaluation Results:
There crimpers use a cast crimping jaw. The crimper gives good strong crimps, but because the jaws are cast, the crimp form accuracy is not as good as can be achieved with a more expensive machined crimping jaw.
This may result in some crimps being slightly flattened which can create a tight fit when inserting the terminal into a housing. If this happens, pliers can generally be used to reshape the terminal slightly for a better fit.
The pictures here shows the crimp achieved with typical DuPont type terminals as used with common breadboard jumper wires.
These crimpers typically sell for $20, but we offer them for $15 based on their overall crimping performance in order to offer our customers a low cost crimping option.
