Weidmuller improves Stripax tools
The design changes to the new Stripax tool increase its capability for stripping a variety of PVC insulated wire ranging from 28 8 AWG. Previous models were equipped to handle up to 10 AWG wire. The Stripax 16 has undergone all of the design changes and innovations as the standard Stripax, with the exception of the expanded cross section capability, and is still the best choice for processing larger gauge PVC insulated wire from 10 6 AWG.
Adjusting the Stripax tools to precisely strip any PVC wire within the compatible cross section range has been made simpler. Sliding gauges set the insulation depth and a longer strip length of up to 1. A unique new feature called partial stripping can be activated to leave the cut piece of insulation on the end of the wire. When preparing a flexible stranded wire, this feature prevents the strands from fanning out, and simplifies the insertion of the conductor into wire end ferrules and other contacts.
While implementing new ergonomic improvements, special concern was given to maintaining the size and weight aspects of the Stripax tools in order to keep fatigue at a minimum. A new detachable grip plate allows for precise and effortless tool operation by all users, regardless of hand size. Even with the addition of the grip plate, the tools remain small and light at 7 ½ long and .38 lbs. Additional practical improvements to the Stripax tools include a hinged protective cover on the cutting edge to prevent accidental damage to multi-conductors, removable clamping jaws to simplify blade replacement, and an integrated injector that prevents stripped insulation from sticking between the wire stop and the blade. The sleeker, more modern-looking tool also features a new Weidmuller ESG device marker frame, allowing for personal identification.
The new fourth generation Stripax and Stripax 16 tools are currently available using the same part number as previous models. In addition to stripping tools, Weidmuller offers tools for dismantling, cutting, crimping, screwing and testing. All of these comply with the latest relevant standards and offer maximum precision and productivity.
