The Belden Cable Preparation Tool (1797B) now makes it faster and easier than ever to stripthe outer jacket from cables without damaging the inner conductors and insulation.
The tool is ideal for use with Belden’s DataTwist® 350, MediaTwist® and DataTwist 600e
bonded-pair cables, providing special features that help separate twisted pairs.
Belden’s Cable Preparation Tool features both the new Pick technique and the
traditional Blade Slot technique to better facilitate pair untwisting. The Pick technique
utilizes a steel awl that Y is incorporated into the tip of the tool that is surrounded on both
sides with guards to assist in pair alignment during the pair separation step. The Pick technique allows for a simple ”pick-n-pull” motion to easily separate the
conductors of a twisted pair cable. The Blade Slot Technique provides the technician an alternate method for separating the conductors quickly and easily. See the reverse side for instructions for either technique.
