New generation 18-0 V - 4.0 Ah Li-Ion

New generation of Cembre cordless crimping tools

B500 is the first of a new generation of hand-held cordless tools heralding a significantly advantageous evolution
from current models.

B500 is suitable for crimping electrical connectors onto conductors with sections up to 240 mm2.

The new tool uses the series of dies common to Cembre 50 kN tools and heads.

Equipped with Li – Ion 18 V 4 Ah batteries, B500 offers greater capacity than the previous 14.4 V 3 Ah versions.

Faster compression and greater crimping force result from the new two-speed hydraulic system: a high approach speed which automatically switches to a low crimping speed, ensuring optimal use of the available energy.

Fitted with a maximum pressure sensor for enhanced precision and repeatability of the maximum pressure cycle, and a pressure relief valve providing additional safety for the operator.

The OLED display provides essential real time operating data, including:

  • crimping force generated, thus verifying accordance with best practice
  • battery charge status
  • general operating information
  • the number of work cycles completed and remaining before recommended maintenance.

...and expressed in our designs, here weight and balance have been reconfigured to yield advances in handling
and convenience.

The more rigid structure of the bi-component plastic body provides greater mechanical protection while its rubber
inserts boost operator safety and comfort.

Quieter operation, illumination of the working area via LED lights and a minimum of vibration make for even more
practical use.

The integrated memory card enables the user to store data from up to 200,000 compression cycles for transfer to a computer via a USB communication interface.
