The versatile FT-45 Modular Crimp Tool simplifies terminations and increases first time success rates. The single crimp cavity for RJ-45 / 8-position connectors is capable of crimping IDEAL feed-thru, standard, shielded and unshielded connectors for CAT5e, CAT6 and CAT6A allowing users to control costs by easily maintaining a single crimp tool, instead of purchasing a new one for different types of RJ-45 connectors. The replaceable heavy-duty cutting blade will last for more than 2000 cuts. The FT-45 also requires less than ½ of the mechanical force of traditional crimpers to squeeze the handle closed and crimp the connector. No ratchet mechanism is needed and one- handed crimping is possible. Additionally, the FT-45 includes 568A and 568B wiring schemes marked on the tool for ease of use.
The IDEAL PrepPRO® can be used to strip the cable jacket. Thanks to an auto-adjusting blade depth, replaceable blade cartridges and a spring-loaded mechanism for consistent cutting force, the cable jacket can be stripped easily.
The Data T®-Cutter tool is a small and compact yet efficient hand actuated cable cutter with dual curved blades and a shearing cutting action which are recommended for cutting coax and other copper based low voltage cables. The curved blades minimize cable deformation, which helps keep the cable impedance (Ω) consistent during connector to cable termination, and allows cable stripping tools to work more efficiently and accurately.
