Product Description

The CommScope EASIAX Plus CPT-12U Automated Cable Preparation Tool prepares 1/2" coaxial cable for connector attachment.

The CPT-12U is made of aluminum. Two cutting blades and one jacket blade are included. The lifetime of the cutting blade is approximately 150 cable preparations. 

How to use

  1. Hacksaw the end of the cable off at 90°.
  2. Place the CPT-12U Automated Prep Tool at the end of the cable and prep the cable.
  3. Remove the remaining dielectric materical with a sharp blade, being careful not to score the inner conductor of the cable.
  4. Install the O-ring gasket 1.5mm from the cable jacketing. If the gasket is not pre-lubricated, apply a thin layer of silicon grease.
  5. Install the back nut of the connector by pushing forward with a slight rotation. Make sure the gasket is not pushed back behind the connector.
  6. Take the front nut, hold the back nut stationary, and attach.
  7. Tighten the connector to the appropriate torque spec with a torque wrench.
