We understand that crimping and assembling loose contacts can be a bit tricky the first few times, so we have made some videos to help with these processes:
- Datamate Barrel Signal crimps, M300, Gecko-MT Power crimps – please refer to the Datamate Female Crimping video. Male crimps and larger M300 / Gecko-MT Power crimps use the same methodology, although the tooling part numbers will be different.
- Datamate Straight Coax Crimping
- Datamate 90° Coax Soldering
- Gecko Signal Crimps
- M225 Crimps
For all our Hand Crimp tools, we also have instructions sheets, which give further details on wire sizes and strip lengths, tool care and other relevant information – links to the relevant instructions and associated tools can all be found on the individual product pages.
If you have a specific question relating to the side hole on the Datamate signal contacts, and the crimping overlap, please read this Support article before contacting us.
If you still have trouble with any of our product and need further guidance, please use the Contact form to talk to our Technical Teams.
