Boddingtons 936 cable tools are designed to cut the aluminium sheath on consac cable to facilitate cable jointing and cable terminating.

The consac cable jointing tools provides safe and accurate cutting of the sheath without the risk of cutting the live inner conductor – exact cutting depths are achieved when using the different size cutting wheels.

Consac cable joints must only be installed by Trained & Competent Jointers using the approved and correct Consac cable jointing tools.

Jointing tools manufactured by Boddingtons are in widespread service throughout the electrical power industry – cable preparation and cable jointers tools are available for use on LV MV HV cables (XLPE, PILC, EPR insulated), waveform, consac, Triplex and utility power cables up to 33kV.
