What is a cable splitter?
What is a cable splitter?Cable Slitters are also known as “slitters”. They can be used to cut multifiber cables like telephone lines or television cables. Multiple optical fibers can be cut with Cable Slitters, which are typically 12.62mm.
The outer jacket is removed from a cable, and cable slitting instruments expose the fibers. Multi-fiber wires can be cut with cable slitting tools that are armored, jacketed, or jacketed.
To expose individual fibers, the cable slitting device is used. This makes it easier to store and handle.
Cable slitting tools are mechanical tools that remove the outer jacket of a cable to expose individual fibers. Multi-fiber lines can be slitted with cable slitting instruments, regardless of whether they are armored, jacketed, or covered. Cable slitting tools can be described by one or more of the following names: “Cable Slitter ,” “cable cutter,”
Multi-fiber cables can be equipped with ACS Cable Slitter Tools that are either jacketed or jacketed. To allow mid-span access, the ACS Cable Slitter Tools can be used to cut the outer jacket, armor, and jacket of fiber optic cables. The precision adjustable blade prevents damage to the fibers.
How to use Cable Slitter?
A.Determine the construction of cables.
Multi-fiber cable construction may have an inner strength member either adjacent to the fibers or external to the jacket or armor. To avoid damaging your tools, you must first identify the cable structure.
B. You can retract the slitting blade with the tool. A sample table can be used to adjust the cutting blade depth. The thumb knob “A”, which is attached with a slotted set screws, changes the blade height every time it is turned. This thumb knob has ten graduated options at the bottom. Each complete turn of this thumb knob equals.042 inches of blade travel. Each graduation equals.042 inches of blade adjustment. If the blade is properly set, it will make a “zipper” sound on armored cables. Avoid placing the edge too deeply to protect the layers below.
C. Operation of the tool. Follow these steps to determine if your cable has internal strength or an external strength.
1. Turn the blade assembly until the longitudinal position is reached by removing the thumb knob “A”. (The blade is shown in radial-cut mode.
2. The cable should be inserted into the tool opening. For a tight fit, adjust the roller using the yellow thumb knob “B”
3. Turn the thumb knob until you can make longitudinal cuts.
4. You can pull the tool along the length of cable to be removed. The agency will follow the “lay”, and then spiral down the line if you’re using an external strength cable. The device will follow the strength members.
5. Turn the tool one, and then loosen the thumb knob. Turn the tool around and tighten the knob.
6. You can now Cable Slitter the cable using pliers/screwdrivers, and trim it.
Cables with external strength members should be stopped at step 6.
These extra steps can only be applied to cables that have internal strength members. (RADIAL CUT)
7. Radial slitting is possible near the middle of the longitudinal cutting. Slide the tool to the position you prefer. Slide the tool to the position you prefer.
8. To perform a ringing cut, rotate the tool around the cable.
9. You can now cut the cable and “banana peel it”. Then trim it.
Warning! Always use OSHA/ANSI approved eye protection when using tools. You should not use this tool for anything other than its intended purpose. Please read the instructions before using this tool.
Ripley Miller Armored Cable Slitter is used to cut the steel or corrugated copper layer on fiber optic cables. It can also be used to slit Central Tube fiber optic cable, Stranded Loose Tube fibre optic cables and other armored cables. The versatile design allows shielding or jacket slitting of non-fiber optic cables.
In one operation, the ACS cuts outer polyethylene jackets or armor. It can also do circumferential (ringing), longitudinal slitting and end stripping. The blade can rotate 90 degrees by activating the blade lever. This allows for mid-span preparation (ringing and slitting).

How does a fiberoptic splitter work?
Cable slitter is an instrument which cuts through the outer jacket of a cable to expose its fibers. Multi-fiber cables can be slitted with the cable slitter tool.
