UC-90 Universal Crimp Tool for Electrical Connectors

The UC-90 is a pneumatic crimp tool system for crimping a wide variety of electrical connectors, including 8-22 ga. ring and spade terminals, RG-series coaxial connectors, RJ-series data connectors and OHM cable connectors.  The standard tool configuration comes complete with pneumatic power pack, jaw and jaw housing, jaw set, foot switch and 2 air hoses.  This tool is usually configured with the remote foot switch control (vs. hand lever control) for safety and convenience.  It's best to allow the technician to have both hands free when positioning the wire and connector prior to crimp.  A hand lever control is available on a special order basis. 

A variety of standard, interchangeable crimp dies are available.  Reference the product section below.
