Product overview

Elpress PCT54C Battery Operated Cable Cutting Tool (up to Ø 54mm) is a high-quality, simple, safe and ergonomic electric cable cutter for copper and aluminium cable. Elpress Tool PCT54C has a Li-Ion battery with a long run time and short charging time, which makes working more efficient. The precision-ground blade on the cable cutter ensures a longer useful life and an optimum cut. The cutting capacity of any cutting tool may vary due to conductor design, insulation thickness, hardness of materials, etc.
PCT54C-US, supplied with 115 VAC charger.
PCT54C-WOBC, supplied without Battery/ Charger.

This product replaces Elpress PKL54 Battery Powered Cutting Tool.

General Information

To strip insulation from cable there are, for example the EMBLA, TOR and ODEN ranges, that strip from 0.02 mm² up to 40 mm² (approximately). The tools are characterised by high precision, ergonomic adaptation, user friendliness and reliability.

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

The size of the conductor that the tools can handle mainly depends on the type of conductor to cut; whether it is a low or medium voltage cable and whether it is, for example. a Solid Class 1, Flexible Class 5 or Stranded Class 2 Conductor. The hardness of the conductor’s material also affects the results. For example, the PCT54C is capable of cutting type Cu FKKJ 4 x 95 mm² low voltage cable or Al AKKJ 4 x 240 mm² or medium voltage cable type Al AXLJ 3 x 150 mm². The insulation takes some space on the medium voltage cable, which is why it can’t be restrictive.
