SRK12IX Battery-powered, Dieless Crimping Tool
Operation (cont’d)
Pressure Sensor
This tool is equipped with a pressure sensor that alerts
the user of an incomplete crimp.
• If the tool is manually retracted before completion of a
crimp, the red LED and an audible beep will be active
for 2 seconds.
• If the tool is unable to reach the required crimp force,
the red LED, work light, and an audible beep will pulse
until after the trigger is released.
6. Depress the trigger to advance the indenter. Hold
the trigger down until the indenter automatically
begins to retract.
Note: If the crimping tool does not automatically
retract, the crimp is incomplete.
It is normal for the battery load display to light at
both the beginning and near the end of the crimping
cycle.
7. Release the trigger until the indenter retracts
completely.
8. To stop the ram from returning fully, activate the
trigger for a brief moment. This activation will close
the retraction valve and stop the retraction motion.
9. Lift the latch to open the crimping head and remove
the connector.
Note: If it is necessary to retract the indenter before
a crimp cycle is complete, push the retract button.
Pushing the retract button will result in complete
retraction of the indenter.
After completing the last crimp on an aluminum
connector, wipe off the excess oxide inhibitor.
Preparation
For a cUL or UL classified crimp, refer to the
“Connector Table” in this instruction manual.
1. Select a proper size and type of connector to
correspond with the wire or cable.
2. Strip the cable to an appropriate length. Follow the
connector manufacturer’s instructions.
Note: Apply an oxide inhibitor, if required.
Refer to the connector manufacturer’s instructions.
Crimping
1. Insert the cable fully into the connector.
2. Place the connector into the V of the crimping head,
as shown below.
An incomplete crimp can cause a fire.
• Use proper die, connector, and cable combinations.
Improper combinations can result in an incomplete
crimp.
• The relief valve sounds and the ram automatically
retracts to indicate a completed crimp. If you do not
hear the sound of the relieve valve or the ram does
not automatically retract, the crimp is not complete.
Failure to observe these warnings could result in
severe injury or death.
Automatic Retraction Stop
1. Depress the trigger to advance the indenter. Hold
the trigger down until the indenter automatically
retracts. The indenter will partially retract to allow
the tool to be repositioned.
2. If full retraction is desired, release the trigger at the
end of the crimp.
Connector
3. If open, close the crimping head. Make sure the
head and latch are fully engaged.
4. For a cUL or UL classified crimp, complete the
number of crimps specified in the “Connector Table”
in this manual.
5. For a single crimp, position the connector so the
crimp will be located at the center of the barrel.
For a double crimp, position the connector so two
crimps will be evenly spaced between the connector marks.
