Siemon's new tool to cut termination times
Connecticut (US), October 17, 2013
Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, has introduced its new Max TurboTool, that aims to significantly reduces termination times, into the Middle East market.
Unlike traditional single conductor punch-down tools, the new Max TurboTool simultaneously seats and cuts all eight cable conductors, allowing a four-pair Max UTP outlet to be terminated in a single action, for increased productivity and reduced hand fatigue, said a statement from Siemon.
Developed specifically for contractors and cabling professionals, the tool significantly reduces termination time for Siemon category 5e and 6 UTP Max outlets.
For use with flat, angled and keystone Max outlets, the highly durable Max TurboTool is designed to facilitate proper outlet insertion and provide a stable platform for the termination process.
“From the start, the development of the Max TurboTool focused on the needs of contractors. Specifically, we wanted to deliver a tool to help them terminate our Max outlets faster and more easily, and do it with a familiar and reliable platform,” remarked Dave Valentukonis, cabling support systems business unit manager for Siemon.
"To meet that goal, the Max TurboTool shares the same proven ratcheting platform as Siemon’s renowned PT-908 crimp tool, that has reliably performed in the market for nearly 20 years," he stated.
“The Max TurboTool brings a whole new dimension to our twisted-pair termination options,” explained Valentukonis.
It increases the termination speed for category 5e and 6 UTP Max outlets to the record levels set by Siemon’s Z-Max category 6A UTP and shielded outlets, allowing contractors to maximise their labour efficiency and profitability across the full range of Siemon’s category 5e and 6A cabling systems, he added.
