Weidmuller stripax® Ultimate
Weidmuller expands its line of stripax® self-adjusting wire strippers with the addition of a new, high-precision stripping tool, the stripax® ULtimate. Designed to strip wires that have tough, halogen-free insulation, the stripax® ULtimate simplifies and reduces wire preparation time. The stripax® ULtimate is the ideal hand tool for halogen-free insulation and other wires specified for use in high-temperature environments, including those classified by UL as THHN and SIS.
The stripax® ULtimate’s unique blade set allows users to strip most halogen-free insulation materials and other tough insulation types from AWG 24.The self-adjusting blade allows the stripax® ULtimate to automatically adapt to the wire size. An additional adjustment can be made, by turning a screw beneath the strip blades, for large gauge or wire with very hard insulation. This new stripping tool also features a three-stage partial stripping function to retain a portion of stripped insulation on the tip of the conductors. This helps prevent the wire strands from fanning out, simplifying the process of ferrule placement.
Ergonomically designed, compact and lightweight at only 7.5 inches and 6 ounces, the stripax® ULtimate offers a number of design features to make wire stripping easier and ensure a long tool life: It provides a cutting option for wire diameters up to 10 AWG, with a foldable protective cover to prevent accidental wire cutting during stripping; the clamping jaws open automatically after stripping; blade replacement is quick and easy; the wire stop mechanism for strip length and insulation thickness settings adjust easily via a slider; and double-insulated wires are processed in two operations without any special adjustment.
