Product Details Supplier Info More products

Weidmüller is expanding its range of screwdrivers with new tools such as an angled spring opener, a hexalobular socket screwdriver with T-handles and bits, a plus/minus screwdriver and interchangeable plus/minus blades and a Robertson square-tipped screwdriver.

The angled spring opener is designed to make it easier to reach tension clamp terminals mounted in confined spaces, such as in distribution cabinets. To achieve this, the blade is curved at an angle of 40°.

The hexalobular socket screwdriver is designed to ensure comfort. The user is able to engage the deep-seated screw more easily with the screwdriver; this reduces the risk of damaging the screw head profile.

The new plus/minus screwdrivers and interchangeable plus/minus blades also ensure comfort and are claimed to satisfy high- and low-torque requirements.

The Robertson screwdriver has a square-tipped profile and is said to enable users to gain a good grip on the screw; this facilitates the transmission of high torques.

Key information

Angled spring opener

  • Its 3mm-thick blade is made of metal to ensure low wear, even after frequent use, and to guarantee value retention over time.
  • The device can be used in conjunction with Weidmüller’s Microseries and Termseries equipped with tension clamp connections, as well as tension clamp terminal blocks in order to open the tension clamp.

Hexalobular socket screwdriver

  • As the device is practically wear free and easy to use, it retains its value over time, which means it can be used repeatedly without any difficulty.
  • T-handles and bits for screws both feature a Torx profile.
  • Screwdriver sizes T15, T20 and T40 are used for W-Series screw-type terminals.
  • Using T-handles, it is possible to transmit more torque with less effort in comparison with conventional handles.

Plus/minus screwdriver and blades

  • Plus/minus screws are suitable for use in electronics; for instance, they are used in relay bases requiring low torques, as well as in surge-protection modules requiring higher torques.
  • They can be used in conjunction with Weidmüller’s Rider series and the Power solid-state relay, as well as with other products.
  • Two versions of the screwdriver are available: the SL/PH1 with a blade length of 80mm and the SL/PH2 with a 100mm blade length. Both are made of fully hardened, high-alloy chromium/vanadium/molybdenum steel with a gunmetal finish.

Robertson screwdriver

  • This device is designed to ensure high levels of safety as it does not easily slip out of the square recess in the head of the screw.
  • It satisfies regional requirements in NAFTA countries.
  • Two versions are available: the SDIR 1 has a 2.3mm head and a 100mm blade made of fully hardened, high-alloy chromium-vanadium-molybdenum steel with a gunmetal finish; the SDIR 2 has a 2.8mm head and a blade, measuring 150mm in length, made from the same high-quality blade material.
