The Best Underground Cable Tools

You won’t be surprised to hear that wires, cable, and pipes are all a part of underground cable tools, but there are a lot of other tools that make underground cabling possible. Most of these tools require certification to operate and should never be used by individuals that are not licensed to use these type of below ground machinery and tools. Telecommunication is made possible with various types of tools for installation.

A conduit is a tube that protects electrical wires and this is very important for underground installation. It protects your wires from underground elements and should never be placed near a gas conduit. They actually house a network of electrical wires for protection and easy maintenance.

Fiber optic cable contains one or more optical fibers or a network of optical fibers. The optical fibers are housed in a protective tube to protect the cables where they will be deployed. In fact, they are individually coated with plastic layers.

Cable guides help route stubborn cable and allow them to be placed anywhere. The frame of the cable guides should always be cleaned with a degreaser to avoid damage to your pipes or other material being used. Two types of cable guides are Jagwire and hose guides for telecommunication installation.

Aerial tools are often used for telecommunication. They are insulated cables that contain all the conductors that are needed for the assignment. They can also be used for power transmissions with voltage under 1,000 volts. They are completely insulated and reduces the risk of electrical shock and there is no need to mount them with insulation. Aerial tools act as shielded cables for telecommunication purposes.

Cable pulling saves time and increases productivity with your telecommunication job. It is the ideal solution for cable optics that are buried underground. Cable pulling equipment allows you to pull with multiple bends. Pulling should be flexible and well lubricated. The type of equipment that has been used in cable pulling has remained steady and specific cable pulling tools are consistently used.

Plowing tools in telecommunications consist of static plows and vibratory plowing equipment. Both of which are used when electrical cables are being laid underground. They assist with boring tools in telecommunication. It secures fiber optic cables that are placed underground and helps the job go more effectively. It helps with directional and continuous plowing of fiber optic cables.

Boring tools are used for installing infrastructures such as conduits and telecommunications. It is also steerable and one of the tops used hand tools for laying fiber optics underground. They are used to make holes in fiber, metal, and plastic. Other types of material are suitable for boring tools. Boring tools create an expansion where you need them to attach other cable or enlarge a previously cut hole. The can also be used to finished the inner diameter of a cut hole in the fiber optic cabling, pipes, and conduits.
