5 Step Process

Blade cut depth will vary according to cable size, progressive advancement is best

Step 1:  Rotary Cut

  • Place tool on cable at gland point, advance blade down into outer insulation

  • Continue to advance blade into steel strands to required depth
  • Repeat insulation only cut approx 50mm further along cable

Step 2: Longitudinal Cut

  • Rotate tool 90° to cable 1st cut, advance blade down into insulation
  • Guide tool down length of cable ensuring sufficient cut depth
  • Adjust blade depth as required to cut insulation

Step 3: Remove Outer Sheath

  • Split and remove outer insulation sheath
  • Unwind steel strands and snap using fingertip pressure at cut point
  • Remove 2nd portion of insulation and splay strands

Step 4: Rotary Cut on Inner Sheath

  • Place tool on cable where secondary insulation is to be removed
  • Advance blade and perform rotary cut to required depth
  • Take care not to overcut to avoid damaging conductors

Step 5: Longitudinal Cut & Remove Secondary Sheath

  • Rotate tool 90° to cable, advance blade into insulation
  • Guide tool down length of cable, ensuring sufficient cut depth
  • Split secondary insulation layer * remove to expose conductors
