What markings can be found on the stripper
According to buyers, such markings are not worthy of special attention, as evidenced by the numerous reviews on the web, but this is a misconception. Not only the alphanumeric dial is important, but also the color. An example would be some American brands that mark the size grid by coloring the handles in different colors. Products from China (AliExpress) have standard designations. The numbers are the operating range of the section supported. Opposite to each blade, there is a sectional designation that refers directly to the wire.
The designations may be in square millimeters or in AWG format, which has its own calibration. It is recommended to use the mechanism strictly as intended, otherwise there is an increased risk of damage to the wire. Popular models may be labeled 1000V, indicating that the customer is facing a design equipped with electrical insulation. A special type of material is used for this purpose. Dots of red, blue and yellow color can be found on the product, the complete set of which allows you to crimp terminals. This indicates the correspondence of the lug collars, which can be processed by means of the selected device, where the cross-section will be:
Product line overview
If we analyze the stripping tools produced by various manufacturers, we can notice that there is no definite division into any categories. All strippers are part of the electrical installation hand tools, but their shape, size, and function may vary greatly.
It is common practice to divide household and industrial wire strippers into 3 groups based on the degree of automation
- mechanical, requiring additional adjustment;
- Semi-automatic, partly adjustable;
- automatic, non-adjustable.
For the most part, they are peculiar pliers or cutters with insulated handles and two “lips” that move by means of a hinge that fastens them together. There are holes of different diameters or knives on the “lips”, which are used to remove the cable braid.
There’s no strict division between the categories, nor is there a single design for the insulation biting mechanism. Examples of popular types:
It is not possible to list all the types. there is a huge range from a small device that fits in the palm of your hand to a compact machine that works continuously in production. But the strippers remain popular because they are easy to carry in the toolbox, comfortable to hold in one hand and can be adjusted as needed to cut different types of cables.
But keep in mind that besides universal models there are many special tongs. for fiber optics, Internet cables, power wires, copper wires, etc. However, for household chores, it is better to buy versatile. inexpensive and multi-functional.
