Seatek's Roto-Spin CT-250 is a lightweight hand tool that features a swiveling blade to ring and straight cut cable jackets from 0.16 to 0.60 inches in diameter. A rotating cam is used to set blade penetration. An adjustable stop with scales in inches and millimeters lets you strip cables to a consistent length. After cutting the jacket, the jacket can be peeled off with little effort since it is ring cut and slit lengthwise automatically. The blade rotates by itself with a friction-free ball bearing.

Available in 6-, 9-, 12-, 18-, 24-, 30-, and 36-inch widths, Cooper B-Line's aluminum cable runway system offers "Redi-Rail" I-beam-shaped rungs with a strength-to-weight ratio designed for supporting hefty cable bundles. Attached with a rung fastener, rungs are pullout tested to more than 3,000 pounds and vibration tested, according to company claims. Rungs may be removed to accommodate high-density cable bundle drops. Also, the system features a line of cable runway accessories for mounting, bending, supporting, and splicing a runway system.
Designed to meet all proposed Category 6 industry specifications of Commercial Building Telecommunications Cabling (EIA/TIA 568) B.2-1 draft 7 standard, Panduit Network Connectivity Group's Mini-Com TX-6 T3 module also meets Federal Communications Commission (FCC) part 68 Subpart F contacts plated with 50 micro-inches of gold. It minimizes near-end crosstalk, which pushes the power-sum attenuation to crosstalk ratio (PS ACR) to 300 MHz, according to company claims. This module may be terminated without the use of a punchdown tool. The average termination time of installing this module is 65 seconds, according to company claims.
