Press release date: March 19, 2002

FCI, a leading connector manufacturer and provider of OEM solutions to the industrial, energy, application tooling and automotive industries, introduces its new high-speed (HS) series of Y500CT and BCT500 crimping tools. Ideal for the electrical contractor and maintenance markets, the new HS tools are lightweight, fast, and easy to use.

The new Y500CTHS L'IL CRIMP(TM) Hydraulic crimp tool is faster and more efficient than its predecessor. This new crimp tool requires only 7 strokes to advance the ram prior to crimping a lug. In addition, a new trigger drain on the handle of the new Y500CTHS makes ram retraction much easier. With a stainless steel latch head that rotates 180 deg for trouble-free crimping, the new Y500CTHS will allow installers to work in tighter areas commonly found on the job. FCI's new Y500CTHS L'IL CRIMP(TM) tool uses "W" series dies and features a wire range capacity of #8 AWG through 500 Kcmil copper, a permanent 'D3' die groove, and is extremely lightweight.

FCI's new BCT500HS BATOOL(TM), like the Y500CTHS, has increased speed and efficiency. Featuring new Makita technology, the BCT500HS uses a Makita tool base, and contains a high efficiency motor with replaceable brushes. Its patented pump uses three pistons instead of one for a smoother operation, and reduces crimp time by 30%. Like the Y500CTHS, the BCT500HS has a 180 deg rotating, stainless steel head that allows installers to work in tight areas, and accommodates all "W" series dies. FCI's new BCT500HS BATOOL(TM) also accepts the old Makita batteries, as well as the new NiMH batteries.
