This ACS fiber optic armored cable slitter is designed to work with jacketed or jacketed and armored multifiber. cable. By slitting the outer jacket or jacket and armor of the above cables, their primary purpose is to gain midspan access to fiber optic conductors. To avoid damage to the fibers, these tools are designed with an accurate adjustable blade. To avoid tool damage, remember to first determine the cable construction.
