The New Design Millar MB04 Fibre Optic Drop Cable Slitter is a patented tool by Ripley 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 fibre 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 Miller MB04 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 Miller MB04 comes completely assembled 2 spare blades and an allen key, which is used for reversed once the blades are worn or replacing. This tool is an alternative to the Jonard FOD-2000.
