Utility tools: IDEAL Industries Inc., a manufacturer and supplier of quality tools, connectors and testing products for electricians and data communications contractors, has introduced its Pro Compression Starter Kit designed for installers of HDTV and analog CCTV systems. The kit contains a collection of necessary tools to prepare and connect F-Type and BNC compression connectors on coaxial cable with the inclusion of the industry-standard IDEAL OmniSEAL Pro XL compression tool to provide contractors with a better bang for their tool dollar.

And speaking of connectors, IDEAL spoils the user with a widest of choices, leading off with 10 different types of InSite and RTQ compression connectors, plus adapters for HD video and analog cameras, DVRs or other video surveillance equipment. Because preparation is essential to a long-lasting connection, IDEAL also added its PrepPRO coaxial stripper for RG59 through 6quad, and the time-proven performance of its Data-T Coaxial Cable Cutter.

Kit Includes OmniSEAL PRO XL
Ergonomics are comfortable and metal construction abounds in the OmniSEAL Pro XL compression tool. In a smooth, one-cycle motion, it compresses F-type, RCA, RG11, BNC and mini connectors onto coaxial cable for a permanent, high-integrity connection. With its universal design, the OmniSeal Pro XL eliminates the need to carry multiple crimp or compression tools. It is factory preset and calibrated to terminate all IDEAL-branded compression connectors. In addition, it can terminate other manufacturers connectors simply by adjusting the tool's plunger depth - no adapters required. There is also a handy 7/16-inch hex socket built-in to install CATV connectors.
