SCT/QR Coring & Stripping Tools:

Product Description

SCT-QR stripping/coring tools strip back and bevel the outer conductor, core the dielectric, and strip back the outer jacket on CommScope® Quantum Reach® (QR) cables.

 

Applications

SCT-QR Hardline stripping & coring tools strip back and bevel the outer conductor, core the dielectric, and strip back the outer jacket on CommScope® Quantum Reach® (QR) cables. SCT-QR Hardline stripping & coring tools work on 0.320″ through 1.125″ CommScope® Quantum Reach® (QR) cables.

Note that, because the jacket must be stripped after coring, SCT tools for QR applications include a special, integrated jacket stripper made especially for this purpose.

Special Features

Stripped QR cableThree Functions in One Operation:
SCT-QR tools speed connectorization because they strip back and bevel the outer conductor and core the dielectric in one smooth operation.

Non-clogging Stops:
There is a non-clogging internal stop on every SCT-QR tool that is factory-set to the required dimension for the cable.

SC 540QRPatented Stripping/Coring Blades:
The bevel on the coring edge of the blade self-aligns on the center conductor, which enables an SCT-QR tool to core cable even when it is out-of-round. Made of tool steel that is heat treated to full hardness, the blade bevels the outer conductor, thereby eliminating O-ring damage and minimizing water migration.

SCT 540QR handle optionsManual or Drill Operation:
SCT tools can be ordered with a standard ergonomic handle or a Cable Prep brand RTH ratchet T-handle. Either handle can be removed for operation with a 3/8-inch variable speed drill.

SCT QR separated JCSAttached Jacket Stripping Tool:
Because the jacket on QR cable must be stripped after the coring operation, each SCT-QR stripping/coring tool (labeled SCT-QR-A) comes with a special jacket stripping tool (labeled SCT-QR-B). The two pieces are threaded, so they can be assembled and stored as one unit, which protects the insides of the parts from damage. The jacket stripper is designed with a patented mandrel pin that supports the soft aluminum outer conductor and keeps it from being damaged during the jacket stripping operation.

Specifications

SCT-QR tools are black anodized aluminum.
