Four new low cost midspan strip tools are now available from Times Microwave Systems for use with LMR® feeder cables sizes 600 through 1700. The GST-600A, 900A, 1200A and 1700A tools provide a quick and easy way to remove the outer polyethylene jacket on the LMR® feeder cables to prep the cables for attaching the ground kits. Made from durable and lightweight machined aluminum stock with a hardened steel blade, each tool is perfectly sized to remove the jacket without damaging the underlying coax cable shield. The tools are compact making them ideal for working on closely-spaced feeder cable runs.
LMR® cables are flexible, non-kinking low loss 50 Ohm RF transmission line cables that utilize easy-to-install connectors and are suitable for use as antenna feeders, system jumpers and interconnects.
