Utility equipment: Platinum Tools, a provider of solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, will showcase the new Tor Cable Jacket Stripper and Slitter (p/n 10017C) during CEDIA Expo 2016, held in Dallas from Sept. 15-17 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, booth # 2123.

“Tor is an adjustable heavy-duty cable stripping and slitting tool for all insulation types used in today’s cables, and it’s great for armored cable!” explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools, Inc. product manager. “Many of Tor’s unique features include tool-less interchangeable cable clamps, giving it a cable capacity up to 1.5 in. / 40mm. The durable Tor has been tested to more than 100,000 cycles.”

Easy to use, Tor has positive locking positions for circular, lengthways and spiral (apple peel) strips. Its blade automatically returns to its starting position at the end of a strip, reducing the possibility of broken blades. And, easy-to-rotate for fine blade height adjustment, the blade height adjustor is nearly friction free.

Additional features and specifications include:
• Ergonomic: well-balanced design to ease raising the cable clamp
• Eyelet built in base of tool for attaching a lanyard
• Size (L x W x H): 6.57 in x 1.46 in. x 1.2 in (167 mm x 37 mm x 30.5 mm)
• Weight: 0.26lb. / 116 gr.
