Legrand’s Starfix ferrules, crimping tools and applicators

May 2021 Enclosures, Cabling & Connectors

Legrand’s Starfix ferrules, cable crimping tools and applicators, which form part of the company’s comprehensive cable management system, are designed for new installations and renovations in commercial installations, offices and domestic environments.

According to Legrand, the outstanding feature of this hand tool is that it efficiently performs four functions in one operation, offering time savings of more than 50% compared with traditional tools that complete the same tasks. The Starfix crimping tool cuts, strips (with a side thrust), twists and automatically crimps each Starfix ferrule onto the cable.

This easy-to-operate tool has a fully adjustable wheel which is set to the cross section of the cable. The cable is then cut to the required length, automatically stripped and then twisted by tightening the tool and pulling the cable to remove the insulation. Ferrules, with an insulating flange, are then dispensed and crimped. The flexibility of this tool enables right and left-handed users to easily perform these functions.

For immediate recognition of the appropriate cross-section of ferrules, they are colour matched with applicators which have a transparent, removable protective cover. Ferrules are manufactured in strips for simultaneous separating and crimping. For easy handling and convenience on site, they are supplied in sachet or box packing. As the last remaining ferrules are held firmly in the box packing option, there is never any wastage. Accessories include cutting and crimping blades, as well as fixing components.
