Conventional use of crimping pliers poses a risk that wire-end sleeves will snag in the pliers or be crimped incorrectly. These automatic crimping pliers with hex crimping can eliminate unnecessary cable and wire-end sleeve waste. With a wide crimping range between 0.08 and 16 mm², they conveniently combine two crimping pliers in a single tool. The crimping pliers thus cover most applications. The hexagonal crimping prevents small wire-end sleeves from snagging. The feed also provides process safety by preventing the plastic cover from being crimped. Thanks to its automated crimp function, the pliers are suitable for empty sleeves (up to 16 mm²) and twin sleeves (up to 10 mm²). The elastic, impact-cushioning plastic handles guarantee comfortable, fatigue-free work. An integrated lever ensures that the crimping process can be stopped manually at any time.
What's important when choosing a suitable light bulb?
The type of light bulb is mostly end user choice however LED and CFL offer energy savings, for example: a 5W LED Bulb is equal to approximately a 40/45W Incandescent Bulb. LED is particularly useful where a light fitting requires a very low maximum wattage bulb. We recommend LED Light Bulbs for all applications and any light fixture with a removable light bulb is suitable for an LED Type Light Bulb.
Have a look at the most popular light bulb shapes, some shapes are purely for cosmetic purpose whilst others are shaped to fit within a lampshade:
Each Light Fixture will state a 'cap' or 'base' which will resemble one of the below (among other types):
The most common light bulb base types in the US are E26 and E11 although there are many more available with just a few shown in the diagram above.
At ideas4lighting we import light fittings from around the world including European designs which are suitable for use in the US but use a different range of cap types specific to Europe, for this reason we don't stock light bulbs but we recommend you purchase your light bulbs from Amazon.
Below we have outlined the EU Base Caps and the recommended solution for use in the US:
When purchasing a light bulb please ensure you purchase for the American Voltage (110V-120V).
