Platinum Tools rolls out the Cyclops 2

Camarillo, Calif.-based Platinum Tools is rolling out the new  Cyclops 2 Cable Jacket Stripper.

With an MSRP of $29.95, the Cyclops 2 is designed for data, voice, video, audio, security and other applications.

“The Cyclops 2 takes the guesswork out of removing the cable jackets from many types of twisted pair UTP/STP, multicore (shielded and unshielded), and fiber optic cables,” explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools product manager. “The tool self-adjusts to automatically cut PVC, plenum, and others without damaging the braids, foils, or conductors. The one piece design is ready-to-use right out of the package.”

The Cyclops 2 accepts cable diameters to 0.43 in. (11 mm).
