Elpress FBS1723 Stripping Tool for MV XLPE cable

Product overview

Elpress FBS1723 Stripping Tool for PEX Cable Insulation (MV XLPE cable) is a stripping tool for PEX insulation on medium voltage cable. Stripping can be done from Ø 15 to 52 mm, equivalent to cable 12 kV 50-1000 mm², 24 kV 25-1000 mm², 36 kV up to 630 mm² and 52 kV up to 500 mm². The cutting capacity of any cutting tool may vary due to conductor design, insulation thickness, hardness of materials, etc.

General Information

To strip insulation from cable there are the EMBLA, EMBLA RA, TOR and ODEN tools. They strip from approximately 0,02mm2 up to ∅ 40mm cable. The tools feature high precision, ergonomic adaptation, user friendliness and reliability.

Tools are available in several variants for cutting Cu and Al cable up to approximately Ø 85mm. In addition to the simplest mechanical tools that cut cable up to Ø 20mm, there is a wide range of hydraulic tools for cutting cable up to approx 85mm.

The size of the conductor that the tools can handle mainly depends on the type of conductor to cut, whether it is a LV or MV cable and the class of the conductor. The hardness of the conductor’s material also affects the results. For example, the PKL54C is capable of cutting type Cu FKKJ 4 x 95 mm2 low voltage cable or Al AKKJ 4 x 240mm2 or MV cable type Al AXLJ 3 x 150mm2. The insulation takes some space on the medium voltage cable which is why it can be restrictive.

Finally, for the preparation of medium voltage cables, 12-24 kV and removal of conducting layers and PEX insulation, tools FBS1722 and FBS1723 are available.
