Hex Crimp: The CarlisleIT modified hex crimp produces an environmentally sealed termination with a single crimp operation. The hex crimp eliminates any sharp edges (flashing) and there is no risk of exposing the base metal to corrosion. To achieve this hex-style crimp, CarlisleIT has developed a shank style die set that is used with industry standard hydraulic crimp heads that produce either 22 or 33 tons of compressive force, allowing you to leverage your existing investment in tooling.
Crimp Indicators: Crimp indicators are embossed during the crimping operation, providing a visual indication of full wire insertion and proper connector installation.
CarlisleIT’s environmentally-sealed connectors meet the toughest certification requirements to provide maximum reliability. Certifications include:
