General specifications This is the pneumatic version of the CXPZ D hand crimping tool (DANIELS M309). Crimping is performed with 8 pressure points. The tool is equipped with a geared mechanism to control the complete crimping cycle. The tool must be equipped with the interchangeable positioner CXTP 40 suitable for series CX (or RX HNM version) crimp contacts . The tool comes already equipped with a pneumatic foot pedal valve (WA10A) attached to the tool through 2,7 m (9 ft.) air hose. The tool operating pressure is 5,5 – 8,3 bar. It is recommended to utilise a lubrication, adjustment and air filtering unit. 1.1 Crimping range Conductor cross-sectional area range: from 1,5 mm 2 (16 AWG) to 10 mm 2 (8 AWG). 1.2 Operation with pneumatic foot valve (supplied with tool) Connect the foot valve between the compressed air source and the tool air inlet. 2. CXTP 40 positioner installation 1 Place the CXTP 40 positioner on the support ring located on the crimping tool (matching the special pin on the base of the turret with the corresponding hole on the support ring), aligning the tapped holes with the socket head screws. 2 With the CXTP 40 positioner places against the support ring, tighten the socket head screws with the 3,5 mm Allen wrench (supplied with the kit). 3 Refer to the dataplate on the CXTP 40 positioner. From the column indicating the proper conductor cross-sectional area, determine the number that corresponds to the contact being used. 4 Remove the retaining hook from the crimping tool dial selector. Lift the dial selector and turn it until the selector number is aligned with the indicator (SEL.NO .). Replace the retaining hook (if necessary). 8. Crimping tool maintenance No maintenance is required. However, it is good practice to keep the indenter tips free from residual deposits of the coloured band (some types of crimp contacts as per MIL standards are identified by coloured bands in the crimping area) and any other debris. A metal brush may be used for this purpose. The following is strongly recommended 1 DO NOT immerse the tools in a solution to clean them. 2 DO NOT brush oil in the tools to lubricate them. 3 DO NOT try to disassemble the tool or repair it. This is a high-precision crimping tool and must be used as such. 3. Checking the crimping complete cycle ratcheting control mechanism Correct operation can be checked based on the following procedure: 1 Install the CXTP 40 positioner (see 2). 2 Reduce the pressure to 1 bar. 3 Using a series CX contact that corresponds to the installed turret, e.g. size 1.5, and a wire with cross-sectional area 1.5 mm2 (16 AWG) use the crimping tool, referring to the crimping instructions. The indenters will not reach the fully closed position and the contact will be internally blocked if the geared mechanism is operating correctly. 4 To release the partially crimped contact, increase the air pressure of the line to 5,5 – 8,3 bar and again use the crimping tool. It will then complete the crimping, allowing the indenters to return to the fully open position. 4. Removing the CXPT 40 positioner With the crimping tool in the open position, to disassemble the positioner, loosen the socket head screws using the 3,5 mm Allen wrench (supplied with the kit). After the threads are released from the support ring, pull off the positioner with a straight movement. 5. Releasing a partially crimped contact To release a partially crimped contact, do the following: 1 Increase the air pressure to 8.5 bar and use the crimping tool. If the increase in air pressure does not release the contact, do the following. 2 Turn the dial selector clockwise to the highest lockable setting (the dial selector must be in the blocked position before continuing). Use the crimping tool. 3 If it does not release after several attempts, contact the ILME offices. 6. Crimping instructions 1 Insert the contact and the prepared conductor through the opening of the indenter in the turret positioner. 2 Activate the hand valve or the foot valve. Once crimping has been completed, the tool will return to the open position. 3 Check the position of the crimping on the contact crimping foot. Ideally, the crimping should be between the inspection hole and the top edge of the crimping foot. The head of the contact should not be squared and the inspection hole should be intact. 7. Instructions to check calibration The operations to check the crimping tool must be carried out with the dial selector in position #5 and the CXPNPP gauge (DANIELS G1005 – formerly G425, which is equivalent). CAUTION! Do not crimp the gauge. 7.1 Calibration check Put the crimping tool in the completely closed position. “GO” - Insert the end (green) of the gauge as shown (Fig. 1). The gauge must pass freely between the indenter tips. “NO GO” - Insert the end (red) of the gauge as shown (Fig. 2). The gauge should not pass through the opening.
