Portable battery Hydraulic cutting units

Radio controlled

Designed for remote cutting operations
for smarter and safer working

Hydraulic cutting units type B68RC3 are fitted with a unique wireless sensor paired to the receiver integrated in the pump using European frequencies (868 MHz). 
The sensor is maintenance-free as it is fully protected and has battery-free technology. 
All RC heads are fitted with an eyelets to hang the head for better support during operation. 
A grounding point is provided to facilitate the grounding of the head when required.
 
 
The heart of each units is the new portable pump B68M-P18-KV-RC3, battery operated for independent use.
Having the inherent strengths of the Cembre 18V tool range, the B68M-P18-KV-RC3 is a lightweight high capacity pump equipped with an innovative radio remote control designed specifically for man-hole environments to allow operators to control and operate the pump out of the man-hole at a safe distance. 
 
New Li-Ion 18V 7Ah batteries provide high capacity while improved operating speed results from a revitalized hydraulic system with double speed action. 
 
A maximum pressure sensor assures greater precision and repeatability of the pressure cycle, while a security valve doubles the provision for operator safety.
 
The unit is fitted with a patented unique system for stopping the pump when the cutting head sensor signals that its blades have travelled fully.  
 
At this point the LED indicator and buzzer notify the operator of the successful completion of the cutting operation. For this reason, each pump is paired to its specific cutting head only and it must be considered as a complete unit. 
The unit has a manual pressure release button in case of emergency. Easy access to the oil reservoir is by means of an oil top-up inlet.  The innovative remote control function is able to work in man-hole environment where radio communication is normally more complicated. 
 
The unit features an OLED display to provide essential real time tool operating information including: 
  • Operating mode selection (cutting or crimping) 
  • Release mode selection (Smart release, manual release) 
  • Minimum set pressure and momentary pressure reached in bar/psi to allow verification of correct operation 
  • Battery charge level 
  • No. of cycles performed 
  • No. of cycles before scheduled recommended maintenance 
  • Motor temperature 
  • Operating command (radio or manual).
 
The unit has a secondary operating trigger which can be selected through the OLED display in case of need.
Fitted by dielectric oil for operator protection in case of cutting cables that may be accidentally live. 
Each radio remote control is paired to only its specific pump. 
 
Designed with improved handling characteristics for convenience and managabiilty, B68M-P18-KV-RC3 has a fibreglass-plastic shell with high resistance to wear and damage. 
 
 
 
Operating features:
  • 20 meters radio control operating range 
  • Intelligent auto-return at the end of the cycle (Smart Release)
  • OLED multifunctional display with touch button
  • Electronic Pressure Sensor (EPS)
  • SMARTOOL technology for viewing and downloading operational data
  • Wireless blade sensor (no batteries)
  • Double acting with radio control or manual intervention
  • Pressure release button
  • Audible and visual indication of operational progress, completion and alarms
  • Anatomical shaping for more convenient and practical handling
  • Li-Ion 18.0 V-7Ah rechargeable high capacity battery
  • Automatic battery connection system with release button

 

Radio Remote Control 

The B68M-P18-KV-RC3 pump introduces radio control to utility cable cutting operations in limited access locations, eg. in man-holes, to enable working from a safe distance. 
 
 

Electronic Cut Sensor 

The ECS guarantees the precision of the cutting operation, checking the actual value of pressure and informing the operator about possible errors.
The operator is in full control of the pump at all times as the B68M-P18-KV-RC3 communicates the progress of the cutting operation by audible and visual indicators. All at a safe distance. 
The pump is equipped with intel- ligent  auto-return   at  the  end  of each cutting operation. Its Li-Ion 18 V-7Ah high capacity batteries provide extended autonomous capability.
 

 

Safe Cut Technology 

Fitted with LED indicators and a buzzer to communicate during progress and at the completion of the cutting operation.

 

 

Fitted by dielectric oil for operator protection in case of cutting cables that may be accidentally live. 
Each radio remote control is paired to only its specific pump. 
Designed with improved handling characteristics for convenience and managabiilty, B68M-P18-KV-RC3 has a fibreglass-plastic shell with high resistance to wear and damage. 
 
Selecting the SMART RELEASE mode on the OLED display allows the operating pressure to be maintained until the operating button is released, thus allowing blades to open automatically at the end of the cutting cycle. 
When used in crimping mode this feature allows the operator to make a visual check of the crimped connection. 
 
SMARTOOL technology enables the user to  to store data from up to 200,000 cycles on the integrated memory card for transfer to a computer via a USB cable. 
 
 

The pump is also recommended for use with Cembre KV type protected crimping heads
