CDM Electronics today announced the availability of Times Microwave Systems’ revolutionary new CCT-03 coaxial cable cutting tool. The tool is uniquely optimized to cut Times Microwave’s ≤ 0.600” diameter coaxial cable with just one cut. Specifically intended for use by operators of any skill level to reduce training requirements, its utilization minimizes waste and ensures cables are accurately and consistently prepared to optimize connector termination. To further enhance the cable cutting process, the tool leaves no metallic residue, which eliminates the need for wire brushing. Times Microwave’s CCT-03 coaxial cable cutting tool may be ordered online from CDM Electronics and is stocked for fast delivery. The CCT-03 is precision-engineered to cut Times Microwave’s LMR-600 (or smaller) low-loss, all-purpose coaxial cable, and the TCOM-600 (and smaller) flexible, low-loss passive intermod coaxial cable. It is also ideally suited to cut RG standard coaxial cable with a solid center conductor and a diameter of ≤ 0.600”. Tested to 1000 cut cycles for conformity of accurate cuts and tool sharpness, the CCT-03 automatically slices through cable jacket, outer braid, foam dielectric, and scribes the center conductor prior to snapping it to complete the cutting process. The device’s safety locking mechanism keeps it positively closed until needed. Replacement blades, blade kits and pouches are also available from CDM. CDM supplies Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) with full lines of standard and specialty connectors including circular, Mil-Spec, DIN, power, PROFIBUS, rectangular, and RF devices. The company employs documented and controlled systems in its value-added division, which specializes in mission critical cable assembly, including custom cable assembly, military cable assembly, power cable assembly, and box builds. CDM’s ISO and AS9001:2008 Certified headquarters is in Turnersville, NJ.
