The FOD-2000 Fiber Optic Drop Cable Slitter is a patented tool that simplifies the slitting of drop cable jackets at the end of the cable or mid-span and was developed specifically for FTTH technicians working with flat fiber drop cables. For flat cables, where the width is .305"-.350" and the height is .155"-.185". These are the dimensions of a typical Corning SST-Drop flat cable with a jacket thickness of 0.03-0.04 inches. The tool will work on other cables with similar dimensions.
The FOD-2000 puts a slit on both sides of the jacket allowing easy access to the fiber or strength member. The ease of use makes this tool truly unique! To use just position the tool around the cable, pull and slit. A simple twist of the cable allows the jacket and strength members to separate from the buffer tube leaving the fiber undamaged.
Designed for .250" flat drop cables. The FOD-2000 comes completely assembled with two blades, which can be reversed once the blades are worn. Replacement blades are also available under part number FOD-RB25 for a package of 25 blades.
