New ITC connector helps prepare coaxial termination
ITC (Instant Tool-less Connector) is now shipping a new stripper intended to ease the preparation of coaxial cable for termination. This solution offers multiple blades in one tool and saves time in the field by eliminating the need for fine-tuning to make a proper cut.
Installers flip the cartridge and let the spring tension do the cut. The tool is sprung toward a closed position. To open, installers squeeze and place the cable up to the included “stop” on the blade cartridge and then release, which allows the tool to close on the cable, pushing the blade into the coax with appropriate pressure to make the cut.
