Cembre RHU131-C Presshead (LV 400sqmm HV 400sqmm)

Cembre RHU131-C Presshead (LV 400sqmm HV 400sqmm)

Cembre RHU131-C 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.

RHU131-C presshead will accept die sets common to Cembre 130kN hydraulic crimping tools.

The RHU131-C hydraulic crimping head is suitable for installing the same range of cable lugs, crimp connectors and terminals as Cembre HT 131-UC

The presshead weighs 3.7kg, accepts the semi-circular slotted dies and compatible with accessories for preforming the “deep stepped indent” system of crimping on aluminium cables – 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 RHU131-C 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 of the tool
  • 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 RHU131-C can be stored and tranported in VAL P26 plastic case, VAL 130-U and VAL-130 steel cases.

LV- HV CABLE CRIMPING APPLICATIONS

Cembre RHU131-C 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
  • Aluminium Cable Lugs and Splices – up to 300sqmm 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.
