My Crimper Is Smarter Than Your Honor Student

Smart Tool ABB crimper

Seriously- can your Honor Student scan lug characteristics, automatically configure themselves for the perfect crimp, then SAVE that data and send it to the cloud??

The ABB Smart Tool can- and it's here. Now.

ABB has created a very clever tool that can be used with standard Color Keyed lugs; for best results you should pair it with the ABB RFID enabled Color Keyed lugs, allowing critical data to be saved and uploaded from the job and time saving for you.

From ABB:

"Data collection and analysis. When used with RFID lugs, the Smart® Tool+ registers a wealth of information on each crimp, including the lug size, its serial number[PJB1] , the crimp pressure and indentation level, and success or failure. Additional information, such as final connection torque and a photo of the connection, can be entered manually. Setup strategies can be used to register the location of groups of crimps so that each crimp in each enclosure on a floor, for example, can be accurately and automatically reported along with its location — a system that is faster, more complete and more efficient than hand-recording data.

Bluetooth connectivity. Smart® Tool+ data can be downloaded to any computing device by Bluetooth, then uploaded to a secure cloud for permanent storage and retrieval.

Analysis and reporting. Using software available in the Smart® Tool+ package, data can be analyzed and seamlessly reported to job supervisors, quality control engineers or any other entity that requires full reporting on crucial electrical connections."

We think our IECC Associate Partners at Thomas & Betts/ABB are pretty smart too.
