ACT-220 Automatic Wire Crimp Tester

Model: ACT-220 (220 lbf Capacity)

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 1 to 8 mm (approx AWG 30 – AWG 8). 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.
