Merlin PowerBlade Cable Cutter
IDEAL Industries Inc. continues to add innovation to its PowerBlade line of products with the new Merlin PowerBlade Cable Cutter designed to cut Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced (ACSR) cable. ACSR high-capacity, high-strength cable is commonly used in overhead power lines, as well as guy-wire tensioned cable installed to improve utility pole stability.
Equipping linesmen with the Merlin PowerBlade means electrical utilities can better respond to market pressure to boost grid capacity and take faster action during emergency power outages.
The Merlin PowerBlade fits onto the standard corded or cordless drills that electricians carry with them every day, so there is no need to waste time with special battery packs or chargers. Once installed, the Merlin Power Blade is held securely in place with an adjustable torque arm, while the user grips an ergonomic, textured Santoprene handle for added stability. Next, the user simply pulls the drill's trigger to cut through thick ACSR cables in 20 seconds or less. This compares favorably with manual cutters that typically require 2-3 minutes to cut through ACSR. To assure little or no cable distortion, the Merlin PowerBlade blade is contoured to provide clean, rounded cutting of ACSR cable.
