Superior Essex Introduces Automated Cable Preparation Tools
Atlanta, GA, August 5, 2013
Superior Essex now offers automated cable preparation tools designed to cut the cable and attach connectors quickly, easily, and consistently to ensure flawless installations.
Connector termination is one of the most important factors affecting Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) and Radio Frequency (RF) transmission line operation. During installation, the phases of cutting, tightening, and cleaning are process-sensitive. Installation flaws such as loose RF connections, poorly prepared RF cable terminations, or metal chips or shavings inside the connector can cause high levels of Passive Intermodulation (PIM). PIM can cause reduced coverage, reduced capacity, slower data rates and/or poor call quality. These tools automate the cable preparation process, allowing you to make accurate cuts in the cable at exact distant requirements for easy connector assembly. You will reduce your labor costs and time associated with installation by eliminating the need to troubleshoot PIM problems.
“We are committed to growing our wireless product offerings and continually providing our customers with high-quality cabling and ancillary products like the automated DAS cable prep tools that allow for time-saving, easy, and correct installation techniques,” says Kim Purdie, Director of Product Management – Wireless Products, Superior Essex Communications LP.
The new, automated cable prep tools fit standard, cordless 18V drills and ensure consistent results each time, regardless of your experience level. These tools work with the Superior Essex line of CMP rated plenum and CMR rated riser coaxial cables, which are approved by leading wireless carriers in the United States.
