Cable Prep SCT-540QR, Coring Stripping Tool, Black Anodized Aluminum, 0.540" Quantum Reach Cables.
SCT-QR stripping/coring tools strip back and bevel the outer conductor, core the dielectric, and strip back the outer jacket on CommScope Quantum Reach (QR) cables.
Note: Because the jacket must be stripped after coring, SCT tools for QR applications include a special, integrated jacket stripper made especially for this purpose.
THE SCT-QR ADVANTAGE;
- Perform three functions at once
- Perfectly aligned coring & stripping blades
- Prevent O-ring damage
- Operate manually or with a drill
- Available with plastic or aluminum body
SCT-QR stripping/coring tools work on 0.320" through 1.125" CommScope Quantum Reach (QR) cables.
- Three Functions in One Operation:
SCT-QR tools speed connectorization because they strip back and bevel the outer conductor and core the dielectric in one smooth operation.
- Non-Clogging Stops:
There is a non-clogging internal stop on every SCT-QR tool that is factory-set to the required dimension for the cable.
- Patented Stripping and Coring Blades:
The bevel on the coring edge of the blade self-aligns on the center conductor, which enables an SCT-QR tool to core cable even when it is out-of-round. Made of tool steel that is heat treated to full hardness, the blade bevels the outer conductor, thereby eliminating O-ring damage and minimizing water migration.
- Perfectly Aligned Cutting Edges:
The patented one-piece blade guarantees proper alignment of the two cutting edges.
Manufactured from high-alloy tool steel that is heat treated to full hardness, the beveled edges remain sharp over a long life.
- Precision Performance:
SCT tools core the dielectric and strip the aluminum sheath without scoring.
The blade leaves a beveled outer conductor edge that eliminates O-ring damage, thereby minimizing water migration.
- Manual or Drill Operation:
SCT tools can be ordered with a standard ergonomic handle or a Cable Prep brand RTH ratchet T-handle.
Either handle can be removed for operation with a 3/8-inch variable speed drill.
- Aluminum Housing:
SCT-QR tools come with an aluminum body.
- Attached Jacket Stripping Tool:
Because the jacket on QR cable must be stripped after the coring operation,
each SCT-QR stripping/coring tool (labeled SCT-QR-A)
comes with a special jacket stripping tool (labeled SCT-QR-B).
The two pieces are threaded, so they can be assembled and stored as one unit,
which protects the insides of the parts from damage.
The jacket stripper is designed with a patented mandrel pin that
supports the soft aluminum outer conductor and keeps it from being damaged
during the jacket stripping operation.
