Full Description


This is the harmonized CSA Group and ULSE standard for Crimp Tools for Use with Connecting Devices. It is the first edition of CSA C22.2 No. 352 and the first edition of UL 1976. This harmonized standard was prepared by CSA Group and ULSE. The efforts and support of the Technical Harmonization Subcommittee, CANENA Technical Harmonization Committee 99 – Electrical Connectors of the Council on the Harmonization of Electrotechnical Standards of the Nations of the Americas (CANENA), are gratefully acknowledged. This Standard is considered suitable for use for conformity assessment within the stated scope of the standard. This standard was reviewed by the CSA Integrated Committee on Electrical Connectors, under the jurisdiction of the CSA Technical Committee on Wiring Products and the CSA Strategic Steering Committee on requirements for electrical safety, and has been formally approved by the CSA Technical Committee. This standard has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group. 


1.1 These requirements cover Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and non-OEM crimp tools that have been evaluated for use with the following types of specified connecting devices: a) Grounding and bonding equipment; b) Electrical quick-connect terminals; c) Wire connectors; d) Wire-connector adapters; e) Ferrules; and f) Lightning protection components. These crimp tools are intended for use in accordance with the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, C22.1, in Canada, and the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70, in the United States of America. 

1.2 These specified connecting devices comply with the requirements in: a) The Standard for Grounding and Bonding Equipment, CSA C22.2 No. 41/UL 467; b) The Standard for Electrical Quick-Connect Terminals, CSA C22.2 No. 153/UL 310; c) The Standard for Wire Connectors, CSA C22.2 No. 65/UL 486A-486B; d) The Standard for Splicing Wire Connectors, CSA C22.2 No. 188/UL 486C; e) The Standard for Bare and Covered Ferrules, CSA C22.2 No. 291/UL 486F; or f) The Standard of Lightning Projection Components, UL 96. 

1.3 Crimp tools covered by this Standard are: a) Investigated to all ratings and uses identified by the OEM of the specific connecting device; and NOTE: Variances to the identified ratings (such as voltage rating, conductor stranding type or conductor range (AWG)) or uses of the connecting device are not covered by the scope of this Standard. b) Limited for use with connecting devices where the ratings noted in (a) have been validated by the same accredited testing and certification laboratory evaluating the crimp tool for compliance with this Standard. 

1.4 In Canada, general requirements applicable to this standard are given in CSA C22.2 No. 0.
