Cembre RHC131 Presshead (LV 400sqmm HV 400sqmm)

Cembre RHC131 Presshead (LV 400sqmm HV 400sqmm)

Cembre RHC131 is a hydraulic presshead crimping tool complete with quick automatic coupler for connection to a hydraulic pump with a working pressure of 700 bar max.

RHC131 presshead will accept die sets common to Cembre 130kN hydraulic crimping tools.

The RHC131 hydraulic crimping head is suitable for installing the same range of cable lugs, crimp connectors and terminals as Cembre HT131-C.

The presshead weighs 3.8kg and is supplied in a robust plastic case which is suitable for storage of the crimper head tool and 14 sets of crimping dies – used to joint and terminate lugs or connectors on LV MV HV cables including 11kV/33kV medium/high voltage electrical systems.

User Instructions

  • The Cembre RHC131 presshead is equipped with a “self-lock” quick male coupler which can be connected to a Cembre pneumatic or electric pump
  • Select the appropriate die set for the connectors (crimp lugs or splices) for use with the presshead
  • Open the latch and release the upper die holder of the hydraulic crimping tool or presshead
  • Insert one die into the upper die holder and one die into the lower die holder
  • Close the latch on the presshead tool
  • Insert the conductor into the connector (crimp lug or splice)
  • Locate the connector between the crimping dies at the desired crimp position
  • Operate the pump to advance the main ram
  • Continue to operate the pump, the ram will gradually advance until crimp dies meet
  • Recommended to keep pumping until the maximum pressure valve is activated and a “click” is heard
  • After crimping completion press the release lever to release oil pressure
  • Recommend only Cembre Lugs & Connectors are used with Cembre tooling

Cembre RHC131 comes with VAL P26 plastic case.

LV- HV CABLE CRIMPING APPLICATIONS

Cembre RHC131 is generally used to terminate copper or aluminium conductors during the installation of LV cable glands (up to 400sqmm) or MV HV joints and terminations (up to 400sqmm).

  • LV Cable Lugs & Splices – up to 400sqmm cable conductors
  • HV Cable Lugs & Splices (11kV-33kV) – up to 400sqmm cable conductors
  • “C” Sleeve Copper Connectors – up to 185sqmm cable conductors
  • Insulated Terminals – up to 240sqmm cable conductors

Contact T&D to discuss crimping cables at MV-HV, including 11kV-33kV, to ensure correct Cembre tool, lug/splice and die set selection – visit battery crimping tools for repetitive crimping of cables without strain injury or worker fatigue.

Full range of battery cable cutting tools also available.
