Samtec Intros Parallel Action Hand Tool
Hand crimping tool for small quantities.
New Albany, IN — Samtec's new Hand Tool (CAT-HT-309-2830-12) is specifically designed to crimp the 1.00mm CC09R Series reeled contacts on 28 or 30 AWG wire. This hand tool is suitable for low volume, pre-production and repair applications of discrete wire components. A mini reel of contacts (CC09M Series) is also available with a smaller quantity of contacts than full reels making it possible to build prototypes and test samples without maintaining a large inventory of contacts. An optional table mount clamp (CAT-HT-MNT-01) is offered as well.

The hand crimping tool is engineered for durability and is calibrated at the factory to the optimum pre-load force required to achieve a proper crimp. The company provides manufacturing flexibility through a range of tooling options from simple hand tools to mini applicators designed for higher volume production. The CAT-HT-309-2830-12 hand tool and components are used to assemble the new 1.00mm (0.0394-in.) pitch Discrete Wire Cable Assembly (S1SS Series) which includes a crimp style dual leaf contact system for a reliable cable-to-board connection. This system is available in a single row design with up to 20 total pins.

Samtec offers a full line of discrete wire systems available as components or complete assemblies for design flexibility.
