Efficiency and automation are not only becoming increasingly important in panel building, but also in cable assembly as a whole. However, due to the high investment costs, fully automatic systems are only economically viable for mass production. Small and medium-sized panel building companies, which instead tend to offer services such as complex small series and one-off productions, primarily opt for semi-automatic solutions. However, with its complete range of automatic machines, Weidmüller aims to offers the ideal solution for their requirements with its new CUTFIX 8 INTERFACE and CRIMPFIX R VARIO.


CF8_Interface & CFR_Vario

The CUTFIX 8 INTERFACE cutting machine with integrated USB interface and a comprehensive software package means that CAE data can be easily used within production. Existing data from the planning phase can, therefore, be quickly and reliably transferred for the production of the control cabinet, with the necessary software included with delivery. The interface of the innovative cutting machine means that CAE data such as the start and end-points and terminal names can be easily displayed on the screen of the machine. Data is transmitted in bundles, and processing is performed on a step-by-step basis. There is also the option of entering data for the cutting orders directly via the touchscreen on the machine.

CUTFIX 8 INTERFACE is the perfect solution for the precise cutting of round cables with outside diameters of up to 8 mm and a wide range of different insulations. PVC and halogen-free cables can also be cut to length precisely and easily. The cutting range is extensive: stranded wires with cross-sections of 0.08 to 10 mm2 (IEC) and AWG 28 to 7 (UL) as well as solid wires of 0.08 to 2.5 mm2 (IEC) and AWG 28 to 14 (UL). Up to 2,000 different cutting orders can be stored, with a length pre-selection of 2 to 999,999 mm. The entirely electrically-operated CUTFIX 8 INTERFACE is sturdy and durable, with titanium-coated cutting blades and metal transport rollers. An integrated counter monitors the overall processing and keeps track of the service intervals. The CUTFIX 8 INTERFACE also has an emergency off switch.


This electropneumatically powered automatic stripper and crimper is characterised by quick processing times and simple operation. It allows for reliable wire finishing with a cross-section range of 0.5–2.5 mm(IEC) and AWG 20–14 (UL) with an average cycle time of under 2 seconds. Thanks to the five-way magazine, all cross-sections can be processed without having to change the reel. This versatile all-rounder is, therefore, the ideal solution when working with frequently changing cross-sections as seen in panel building within small-series production.

Stripping and crimping are performed in a single step. The cross-section can be easily adjusted via the touchscreen, eliminating the need for any lengthy setup times in the event of different cross-sections. The simple menu navigation also saves valuable working time, with the day, total and service counters also providing all the necessary operating data. The selection of the required wire-end ferrule is equally simple. The CRIMPFIX R VARIO processes wire-end-ferrule reel materials in 8 mm, 10 mm and special collar sizes, such as L2 = 8 mm for wires with thicker insulation. The crimp has a trapezoidal shape. When the cross-section is selected on the touch screen, this triggers the automatic filling of the crimping die with the corresponding wire-end ferrule. The machine parameters only need to be adjusted when switching the crimping length between 8 mm and 10 mm. The special collar size (8 mm or 10 mm) can be implemented by simply replacing the wire-end-ferrule reel. When changing the crimping length, the machine can be adjusted easily in just a few seconds. The reel holder is widened via screws at four positions within the machine, which are clearly marked as “A” and “B”.

The CRIMPFIX R VARIO stands out with its sturdy metal components which ensure extremely high levels of repeat accuracy and maximum extraction values. The electropneumatic drive is suitable for a wide range of different insulation materials as well as for PVC and halogen-free wires. The main wear parts, the ferrule separating blade and the stripping blade, are available as spare parts and can be replaced by the customer. The machine also has a long service life through high-quality and wear-resistant components, so rarely needs to be brought to Weidmüller for reconditioning. An integrated service counter informs the operator that servicing is due after 400,000 cycles, and there is no forced shut-off, meaning that work with the machine can be continued although it is naturally recommended that service intervals be complied with to guarantee a long service life.

Weidmüller VT series voltage testers – Simple and standardised voltage testing with two-pole testers.

Weidmüller has renewed its voltage tester range. The new two-pole voltage testers are even more compact and offer a wealth of new functions. They, of course, comply with the latest standards, DIN EN 61243-3:2015-08 and IEC 61243-3:2014. The VT two-pole voltage testers – VT Master, VT Combi Pro and VT Digi Pro – offer new features for each device, such as a measurement range up to 1,000 V AC/DC, resistance measurement and with CAT IV – 600 V an expanded range of applications.

The two-pole voltage tester forms part of an electrician’s standard equipment. It fits into every case and so is always available for quick and easy testing. But clearly, a modern voltage tester can do even more than this. Such safe and reliable tools are especially in demand in the industrial plant sector where causes of failure such as loose contacts or short circuits can be tracked down quickly in a widely branched installation. Two-pole voltage testers from Weidmüller can be used to check all of the essential functions in the panel, such as the absence of voltage, continuity, rotating fields or frequency. This qualifies these devices as professional tools for every application in the low-voltage range. They are certified in accordance with the new standards DIN EN 61243-3:2015-08 and IEC 61243-3:2014.

Weidmüller’s voltage testers offer a wide variety of testing options. Voltage and continuity are signalled visually and acoustically. The buzzer function facilitates handling when the electrician needs to look elsewhere, to keep an eye on an unfavourably located contact point for instance. For optical signalling, the devices are equipped with bright LEDs or a display. There is also a practical one-hand operation for fast testing of sockets: The measurement probes can be locked together magnetically or mechanically at the right separation for socket testing. Additionally, there are thicker screw-on measurement probes available for precise contacting of sockets.

Many other advantages distinguish the testers, such as automatic detection of polarity as well as voltage type, DC or AC. The voltage range extends up to 1000 V AC / DC. Using the actively selectable load function from VT Combi Pro and VT Digi Pro, an earth-leakage circuit breaker (ELCB) can be triggered, a capacitor discharged or a reactive voltage attenuated – and this prevents inadvertent ELCB triggering during testing. The VT Digi Pro also offers resistance measurement.

Often very high demands are placed on safety, especially in highly professional applications, such as in industry and panel building. In order that the electrician does not fall into a grey zone, the voltage testers from Weidmüller are certified for protection class IP54, and some for IP 65. The measurement category was designed for professional applications, up to CAT III 1,000 V / CAT IV 600 V depending on the device. Besides the option of measuring circuits electrically connected to a low voltage system, this also enables measurement in building installations. The device portfolio includes:


Six LEDs indicate the voltage between 12 V and 690 V AC/DC. The VT is a simple, yet reliable and practically-oriented voltage tester that satisfies all requirements for professional use.

VT Master

This device also focuses on the essentials. The voltage range is 12 V – 690 V AC/DC. It also offers continuity testing with an optical and acoustic indicator, as well as polarity testing (+/-). VT Master is certified to the IEC 61243-3:2014 standard and complies with protection class IP 54.

VT Combi Pro

The professional tester VT Combi Pro offers impressive features for its class. Its voltage range starts at 6 V and extends to 690 V AC/DC. It also has continuity testing with an optical and acoustic indicator, as well as polarity testing (+/-). Furthermore, it has a rotating field display. A key advantage is a selectable load with which ELCB switches can be tested. The magnetic locking feature makes the measurement probes especially convenient to use. Thanks to measurement probe illumination, the VT Combi Pro is easy and safe to operate even under the most adverse conditions. The device conforms with the IEC 61243-3:2014 standard and thanks to its CAT III 690 V / CAT IV 600 V measurement category is highly versatile. Protection class IP 65 also ensures safe operation in extreme environments.

VT Digi Pro

This tester is the new flagship in the Weidmüller VT family. With a voltage range of 1 V – 1,000 V AC/DC, it covers all applications in the low-voltage range, from supply through to control. Like the VT Combi Pro, this tester offers optical and acoustic continuity testing, polarity testing (+/-), a rotary field display, ELCB testing with selectable load and magnetic locking. Moreover, the VT Digi Pro enables resistance and frequency measurement. Indeed, it offers the functionality of a small multimeter in the robust enclosure of a tester. Instead of an LED indicator, it is equipped with a large and easy-to-read display. The display is backlit and automatically switches on in dark surroundings. This means the measured values can be read effortlessly and error-free. The device conforms with the IEC 61243-3:2014 standard and protection class IP 65 and the measurement category complies with CAT III 1,000 V / CAT IV 600 V.

With these four new testers, Weidmüller is able to cover all conceivable applications for two-pole voltage testers.
