Official Announcement Made During BICSI Fall 2021 Conference & Exhibition
Elmsford, N.Y., Tuesday, August 31, 2021 — Jonard Tools is excited to announce that our CableSaber (AST-200) was recognized as one of the most innovative tools of the cabling industry by the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards. An esteemed and experienced panel of judges from the cabling community recognized Jonard Tools as a Gold Level honoree.
“On behalf of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards, I would like to congratulate Jonard Tools on their Gold—level honoree status,” said Cabling Installation & Maintenance Chief Editor Patrick McLaughlin. “This competitive program allows Cabling Installation & Maintenance to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products, projects, technologies, and programs impacting the industry.”
The CableSaber is the ultimate tool for gaining access to armored or thick-jacketed cables. The tool features an adjustable blade that can easily be set, by hand, in a longitudinal setting for slitting or a radial setting for ringing on cables between 4 mm-28.6 mm in diameter. The precision blade will cut through the toughest materials while ensuring the fibers inside are not damaged. The Replacement Blade for the AST-200 CableSaber (AST-200RB), comes in a pack of two and is easy to replace.
“We’re honored to have received the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Award for the CableSaber,” said Ed Scirbona, Jonard Tools Senior Director of Engineering. “We worked really hard to create an amazing tool with a unique design that was driven by our customers’ needs and their input. We went through several prototypes to ensure this tool could cut the cable jacket as efficiently and as accurately as possible. We’re extremely proud to have the AST-200 in our collection of cabling products.”
The Innovators Award was officially announced during the BICSI Fall 2021 Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas.
