Overview

The CPT2 is a Dual Purpose Fiber-Optic Cable Preparation Tool for slitting and/or stripping. With selected pairs of blades mounted on each side of the moving jaw - this tool is totally customized to meet the users requirements.

Slitting Sheathing

When equipped with slitter blades, the CPT2 easily slices through cable sheath with no damage to the internal fiber optic cable. The exclusive ball socket joint and factory-preset blades allow the CPT2 to glide effortlessly along any length of cable resulting in two precision slits along the cable length.

  • Slitting the sheath

  • After slitting

Stripping Buffer and Acrylate

When outfitted with stripper blades, the CPT2 successfully strips away both the 900µm buffer and 250µm/500µm acrylate in one single action and is robust enough to remove 3-4cm of hard military tight buffer and acrylate in a single pull.

  • Stripping buffer and acrylate

  • After stripping

This method of cable preparation requires minimal time and effort to accomplish. A simple light pressure engages the slitter blades. A sliding jaw lock is provided primarily for use with the 900µm buffer stripper, which enables the operator to close and hold the stripper while preparing to apply additional pressure for pulling the buffer. This innovative approach to cable preparation saves time, increases production and is safer than conventional practices. The CPT2 is the ideal tool for every field technician required to slit and strip fiber optic cable.

Blades

CPT2 Blades

Replacement Blades are factory preset to guarantee trouble-free slitting and stripping. Every pair of blades is precision machined from Cobalt Tool Steel to yield optimum results and are easily replaced by the user. Slitter blades have a life expectancy of >2km and stripper blades are assessed for >10,000 pulls unless excess wear is caused by abrasive contamination.

Military, Harsh Environment and commercial cables have unique qualities. Therefore, blades and tools are sold separately. The table below provides the details and specifications of currently available blades. Contact Luminos to discuss the possibility of custom blades.
