June 17, 2009 -- For its JackRapid termination tool, Fluke Networks has introduced new interchangeable blade heads that support the Panduit Netkey Category 5e and Category 6 punchdown jack modules, NKP5E88M and NK688M. The JackRapid tool now supports the majority of jack styles commonly used by cable installers, maintains Fluke.

The JackRapid termination tool lets technicians install jacks up to 8x faster than with traditional punchdown tools, contends the company. Users can terminate and trim all eight wires in a jack at once by squeezing the tool. The JackRapid handle includes a built-in wire jacket stripper, plus an ergonomic design that requires less effort when performing the punchdown process.

The tool's patented design features an interchangeable termination head that holds the jack in place. Different style heads accommodate jack styles from most popular manufacturers. The termination head uses a wall-friendly design to that makes close-to-wall installations far easier than with other types of tools, maintains the company.
