The cable stripper is a crucial yet often overlooked tool in networking. Some RJ-45 crimpers offer cable-stripping as an additional function, but they are not as effective as the specialized tool. Choosing the right cable stripper is the initial step towards achieving optimal results in your tasks.
In scenarios where contractors handle data, voice, and CATV simultaneously, merely cutting the cable jacket isn't sufficient.
When handling coaxial cables like RG6 or RG59, it's important to exercise caution when removing the dielectric insulator. And during telecom system installations, a cable stripper equipped with a length stopper for flat cables is essential to avoid damaging the insulated conductor.
