The Panasonic EYC215LH2F57 14.4V Dual Voltage Cordless Drill & Impact Driver Combo Kit combines lightweight bodies with extreme power. Both units feature precision variable speed control/reversible, high power brushless motor, plus LED light for user-friendly operation in dark areas, and an electric brake for added safety.
New Brushless Motor
Without brushes and commutator which can reduce the lifetime of the tool, the motor lasts approximately twice compared with brushed motor*.
* Compared with Panasonic conventional brushed motor.
New Ultra Hard Chuck Jaw Tips
We increased durability of every part right down to the new metal chuck which features tungsten carbide jaw tips. These extra hardened inserts are brazed into each jaw to give extra ‘bite strength’ and substantially reduce wear.
New Hybrid Switch
To eliminate heavy friction to internal parts of the switch during use of electric brake, we developed a new semi-electronic switch. This gives smoother operation and double* the life expectancy of the part.
* Compared with Panasonic conventional switches.
Increased Efficiency and Flexibility
The new ‘Speed Control Function’ allows the user to select from three different low rotation speed settings, based on allowable maximum speeds for metal hole saws. It greatly reduces ‘run out’ when using metal hole saws and prevents surface scorching on stainless steel and other materials.
The advanced ‘Smooth Start’ electronics allow easy, precise speed control, enabling the ultimate control when starting drilling or working with small screws in precise applications.
Fastening long bit and bolt.
Fastening for furniture.
Fastening for plaster board.
Self Drilling Screw Mode
This new function starts at highest speed to cut hole and then transfers to High Mode to cut initial thread. After that, load is reduced so it automatically switches to slower Soft Mode to limit the potential of stripping threads on fastener or material.
Battery Capacity in M12 Hightensile Bolt: More than 30,000pcs¹
New brushless motor has approximately 200%² more life cycles. And with a thicker motor shaft (ø5mm) ensures more strength for heavy-duty use.
¹ Panasonic test result by M12 High strength bolt (2sec). ² Compared with Panasonic conventional brushed motor.
Hybrid switch unit uses rigid metal parts in the trigger, giving you 200% more durability³.
³ Compared with our previous mechanical switch.
Redesign and improvement of anvil materials has increased durability of impact parts giving longer service life and increased overall performance.
Increased Housing Durability
To increase housing durability, metal plates have been added where the battery locks into the tool. This helps prevent wear and damage caused by abrasion and vibration during heavy use.
The all new shorter brushless motor helped designers to achieve our most compact high power impact driver with optimum centre-balanced ergonomics for more comfortable working, even in narrow spaces.
Dust and Water Resistant Level IP56
The International Protection Code classifies the degree of protection provided against intrusion of solid foreign objects and liquids in electrical machinery and fixtures as defined by the IEC standards.
LEVEL 5 - Dust Protected LEVEL 6 - Protected Against Powerful Water Jets
Dual Voltage for Better Versatility
Dual voltage technology offers powerful performance with either a 14.4V or 18V battery. A special dual voltage circuit detects the voltage of the attached battery pack and controls the current and voltage flows to the tool to ensure optimum performance.
Compact and Powerful
Panasonic’s new generation 14.4V 18V Li-ion battery cell delivers high power and long lasting battery capacity. The 14.4V Li-ion batteries are durable and has great working capacity per charge.
Durable New Design
Over-discharged prevention sensor Prevents over-discharge to avoid lasting cell damage or recharge problems.
Battery overheat protection sensor Cuts off power to the motor before the battery temperature rises.
Individual monitoring of battery cell voltage Each cell monitored by sensor to ensure optimal discharge control.
Battery sensor Flashing lamps indicates overheating battery. Battery is automatically reactivated when temperature drops.
Heat resistance layer technology In cases where seperator is damaged and abnormal heat is created, HRL acts to contain this heat, just like a Fire wall.
NNP technology Panasonic’s own developed Nickel oxide material provides higher capacity and higher reliability.
