Hand tools

What makes the most amount of your time daily? Assembly? Picking? Wiring? Marking? Testing? 

Well, if the answer to that is wiring then we can help you out with some time-saving tools to help streamline your processes. 

The CF 3000 will strip and crimp your wires in less than 2secs… 1.2secs to be precise! The time saved on this machine is approx. 4x over a minute. The CF 3000 will strip and crimp wire sizes of 0.25mm, 0.5mm, 0.75mm, 1mm, 1.5mm and 2.5mm that are supplied on a strip of 50pcs. 

The CF 1000 will do the same as above, but you can use loose ferrules fed into a hopper on top of the machine. Using air pressure to make the crimp, you can again crimp 0.25mm, 0.5mm, 0.75mm, 1mm, 1.5mm and 2.5mm all in less the 2secs. 

If you like keeping the feeling of crimping in the palm of your hand then you can check out the Crimpfox 4in1. This hand tool cuts, strips, twist your strands the crimps for you. Keeping all this in one tool saves you 30% crimping time.  

If stripping is all you need then the WF 1000 will strip your cable for you in 0,3secs! Up to 6mm cable size and adjustable stripping length. 

If you spend most of your day measuring and measuring cable to cut to size then have a look at the CUTFOX 10. You can cut cables of up to 10mm and set quantities to do so. Walk off and leave to work and you’ll have a pie of cable waiting for you. 

How do you cut rail and trunking? If the answer is a hacksaw then check out the PPS Compact and the PPS CD tabletop cutters. These will save you lots and lots of sawing time.

And lastly, our electric torque screwdrivers – the time saver here speaks for themselves and we have two models, one for up to 16 torque settings and the other up to 21.

Empowering the All Electric Society

From |

Save the planet…sustainability…eco-friendly…green…  

All words that can often debate the correct path for us all to take with our lifestyle and daily decisions.  Whilst we can debate on the current state of the planet, we can’t deny that it cannot hurt to try.  To try to do things a little differently and, hopefully, better. 

With this being said, I would like to introduce the All Electric Society

The idea of the All Electric Society is a World where everyone has access to affordable, unlimited, renewable energy.  To not only utilise renewable electricity for our daily uses, but also for travel and industrial purposes. 

This concept sounds relatively achievable until you ask them questions about aspects like air travel – can an aeroplane really utilise solar/battery power?

Maybe, maybe not.   

From a renewable perspective, the solution for air travel is utilising renewable jet fuels – “Power to X.” 

To learn more about Power to X, click this link or do a quick Google search and you’ll find yourself an abundance of information on how electricity can be converted into heat, electricity, or synthetic fuels.  This concept is truly fascinating and could potentially change the planet for the better. 

Phoenix Contact is working with the Power to X concept and sharing our own dream of an All Electric Society, where we have many solutions to help our partners create a better future for our planet.   

After all, Electric is our business.

From electric vehicle products to the simple terminal block used in nearly all electrical and renewable applications, we believe we have the widest portfolio of solutions to help achieve the goal of a sustainable future.

Look out for future communications from Phoenix Contact on our All Electric Society journey.

Cable management for connecting your cabinet

Written by Nigel Venaruzzo, Product Manager – Device Connectivity and Industrial Field Connectivity

When designing your Electrical Cabinet, have you considered its location?
Is it 680m up in a service cavity of the Burj Khalifa? Does it have to withstand the harshest conditions within mining? Or is it required to withstand regular high-pressure cleaning at temperature in a food processing plant?

Cut, Strip and Crimp – Tools to Ease Your Cabling Pains

Cutting, Stripping and Crimping of wires sound easy and effortless. As mundane as it sounds, this task for an electrician doing daily requires a high quality, optimal tool rather than a standard tool.

It is no secret Phoenix Contact tools are of the highest quality and always have been a huge talking point when visiting engineers. As one of our customers said, “If you use quality tools, your quality of work improves, and therefore you have less callouts for repairs.”
