hirose df1b connector crimp tool?

Post by theMot »

hey guys, is the tool to crimp the connectors for these the same that does hirose db11? I found a cheapy to do those on ebay but not sure if it works for df1b too?

This is the connector for a kick harness. I have seen a crimp tool designed for these but it costs over $1000... Not keen on selling a kidney to crimp a few cables! :-o

You want to get a Hozan P-706. It will do pretty much all of the JST, AMP UP, Hirose, Molex etc contacts needed in this hobby.

Yes I got one at it is amazing at doing different types of crimps. Including atx type pins which apparently your supposed to buy the official tool which is mega money.

Yep, 16/0.2 (~20AWG) for signal and 24/0.2 (~18AWG) for power.
