  • SL CPA +

    SL CPA +

Fast and reliable

  • Compact, easy to operate
  • Easy to use „height gauge“ for standardisation of crimping machine shut height to Tyco AMP standard 135.780 mm under dynamic condition
  • Quick check on crimping machine performance without PC
  • Easy tools for periodic preventive maintenance of crimping machine
  • Direct display of shut height in 0.001 (1µm) resolution
  • Direct display of pre-loaded force in N or lbs, adjustable range 4 - 10 kN
  • Real time graphical display for CPK index and standard deviation for both shut height and force
  • Storage of up to 8 x press analysis data without PC software
  • Easy report generation outside manufacturing floor
  • Ethernet connection to SPC Windows software, for concurrent analysis of SL series CFM
  • Timer and cycle counter for automatic firing of press, ideal for press manufacturer
  • Life and maintenance counter for periodic servicing

The CPA + tool consists of a load body to apply consistent and repeatable force to a crimp press. The design of the system allows to get very fast information about machine capability as well as shut height values and crimp force monitor functionality.
The integrated control with graphic display allows storage of up to 20 files at working place. Those files can be loaded to optional PC software via ethernet interface.


  • External IPC force sensor input for concurrent evaluation
  • Display: Graphical dot-matrix LCD
  • Interface: RS 232 and Ethernet TCP/IP for linking with SPC software


  • SPC software, Microsoft Windows compatible
