ACT-220 Automatic Wire Crimp Tester

Model: ACT-220 (220 lbf Capacity)
act-220-516x516 act-220wire

The ACT-220 Automatic Wire Crimp Tester is designed to measure the strength of wire crimps, up to 220 lbf (1000 N). This tester features: Easy-to-use menus, EL electro-luminescent display, an easy to use keypad simplify crimp test programming and much more.

The tester conforms with UL 486A-B as well as other ASTM, MIL, ANSI/EIA, NASA, IEC and JIS crimp testing standards. See the specifications table for more details.

The wire terminal grip has 12 slots which accommodate wire diameters from 18 AWG to 1 AWG (1-8 mm OD). Smaller test fixtures are also available.

Simplify Your Wire Crimp Testing

Press the green button to automatically test a crimped on wire terminal. After the test is completed, the tester will automatically return to the starting position. The peak force is held on the display and pass fail LED indicators allow for easy GO/NO GO testing. Each reading saved into memory has a date and time stamp. Up to 1,500 results can be saved and recalled from memory. Test configuration is intuitive. Select units, destructive or non destructive testing, hold duration, hold value (non-destructive) and test speed. Save up to 26 individual wire crimp test profiles in the internal memory for quick and efficient testing of multiple sample types.

What’s Included?

The ACT-220 includes the ACT Logger data acquisition software. ACT Logger downloads data from the tester memory and/or captures peak data while testing via the USB output. All tester programming can be set from the software.
All ACT-220 Automatic Wire Crimp Tester include a 3-Point Certificate traceable to NIST. ISO Certificates are available at an additional charge.

LH-110 Horizontal Wire Pull Tester

Horizontal Straight Pull Crimp Tester
lh-110-516x516
  • Straight-pull without bending or winding the test wire
  • Lever action allows for rapid testing
  • Horizontal positioning is easy to control
  • Stroke 3.34″ (85mm)
  • lbf, kgf, and Newton units are selectable
  • RS-232C, Digimatic and analog outputs
  • Runs on internal rechargeable batteries or AC adapter
  • NIST Calibration Certificate included (ISO 17025 Certificate optional)

The LH horizontal, straight-pull, wire terminal testers are designed specifically to test the pull-off force of wire terminal connectors and includes gripping attachments.
The display module has selectable units, peak or real time modes, and operates with either the internal battery or included AC adapter.
The terminal grip opens to 5mm and allows wire terminals to be held with minimum damage to the wire jacket and holds the connector after pull-off. The wire grip has serrated jaws for a firm hold on the wire. Optional wire terminal grips are available.
The lever provides rapid action and a straight-pull on the wire and wire terminal. The tester is unaffected by gravity and does not employ a return spring, making it perfect for wire terminal crimp testing.
