Large diameter cables and thicker insulation (i.e. higher voltage cable) aspecially XLP, will cause increasing difficulty in the use of the 1542 series tool. Therefore, it is recommended that the tool be used on the following cables: kV Class Conductor Size
This new IRBY Cable Chamfering Tool has been designed to precisely fit #4 through 1000 mcm 15 kV, 25 kV and 35 kV high voltage cable. Whether you are using XLP or EPR cable, the tool has been designed to be used for both types of insulation.
The cutter blade that removes the insulation is located inside the tool. There are no exposed blade edges, thus eliminating the risk of Line Crew Personnel using an open knife & avoiding the possibility of accidental hand cuts.
To use the IRBY Cable Chamfering Tool simply slide the tool over the cable conductor and rotate the chamfer tool in a clockwise direction, the insulation is quickly and safely removed to the desired exposure.
Built extra strong for line work. Tough tempered-steel blade with the blade back ground flat for scraping copper wire. Big, rugged, molded-on plastic handle provides a firm, comfortable grip. Large finger guard helps keep fingers away from blade. With or without handle ring.
A single long steady pulling stroke of the Buckskinner easily removes insulation and semi-con from all types of cable. Just peel the rest off! It's patent contoured blade and unique stripping edge safely "shaves" insulation or semi-con from a wide range of cable sizes without damaging the conductor.
Tests prove that the ACSR Cable Trimmer reduces cable preparation time up to 70 percent. Operating this tool is fast and easy, similar to a conventional tubing cutter. Rugged aluminum alloy construction assures light weight and a long service life.
