Introducing the Multi-Cable Stripping Tool

We are pleased to announce a new addition to our Cable Assembly product line: the Multi-Cable Stripping Tool.

The Multi-Cable Stripping Tool is a unique new product that makes it possible to strip multiple types of coaxial cable, even cable from different manufacturers, with a single tool.  We have purposefully released the Multi-Cable Stripping Tool alongside some additional products, our new RF Compression Connectors, which are designed to be installed on coaxial cables following the cable stripping process, (click here for more information about our RF Compression Connectors).

Introducing the Multi-Cable Stripping Tool

Multi-Cable Stripping Tool Introduction Video

As the name states, our Multi-Cable Stripping Tool is capable of stripping multiple types of cables, including air and foam dielectric cables, as well as cables from different manufacturers.  This is made possible by the different bushings that can be interchanged on the bottom of the tool.  Each bushing is designed to help cables entering the tool perfectly align so that they are stripped correctly.

The Multi-Cable Stripping Tool comes with 3 bushings.  Want to strip a CommScope copper shielded cable?  Use the 620 bushing.  CommScope Aluminum Cable?  Use the 630 bushing.  RFS Copper Shielded Cable?  Use the 650 bushing.  The number on each bushing references a size, (in millimeters), that ensures different types of cables line up correctly once inserted into the stripping tool.

The bushings can be easily interchanged with one another, as there is a simple screw towards the bottom of the Multi-Cable Stripping Tool that, once loosened, will release the bushing.  Once the desired bushing is put in place, you simply tighten the screw once more to secure the bushing into place.

Our Multi-Cable Stripping Tool also features a stopping point, meaning the tool will not continue to strip once it has stripped the necessary amount.  It is possible for the tool to continue to spin, but because of the built-in stopping point, it will not continue to cut/strip the cable.

The tool can be used by hand via the T-Handle, or the T-Handle can be detached, allowing the Multi-Cable Stripping Tool to be directly inserted into a drill.

The Multi-Cable Stripping Tool comes with the 3 different sized bushings, 2 allen wrenches, 1 dental pick (for finesse cleaning of stripped cables), a cutting tool, and a carrying pouch.

Introducing RF Compression Connectors

Introducing RF Compression Connectors

We are pleased to announce some new additions to our Cable Assembly product line; RF Compression Connectors.  The connectors are made for coaxial cables and are available in 4.3-10 and Type N, (both male and female).  These RF Compression Connectors have been purposefully released alongside another new product, our Multi-Cable Stripping Tool, (which you can learn more about here).  As the name states, these connectors are installed by means of compression and can be quickly and easily installed in the field, (if necessary).

Introducing RF Compression Connectors

The connectors are installed in a few, simple steps.  After stripping the cable, take the provided o-ring and slide it into the third “valley,” or corrugation of exposed cable. Then, slide the lower half of the connector over the o-ring and onto the cable.  Attach the other half of the connector, and torque it tight.

RF Compression Connectors

Our RF Compression Connectors have excellent test results, with VSWR less than 1.2 and Return Loss less at -21 dB.  The connectors are available in 4.3-10 and Type N variations, both male and female.

With the holiday season now upon us we wanted to take a moment and wish you the happiest and healthiest of holidays!  As we do every year, we like to take a step back around this time and reflect on the year that we will soon leave behind us.

Without a doubt, 2021 will be remembered as a unique year.  All of us have had to make adjustments in how we work and how we live and I’m sure you’ll agree that we all hope that these adjustments will make us better and healthier going forward.  Here at Gamma Electronics, we are pleased with what we’ve accomplished in 2021 while simultaneously feeling excited and optimistic about 2022, and the future in general.

Below we have highlighted some of the news from 2021 as well as some things we are looking forward to in the future.

Highlights from 2021

We released some exciting new products this year, most notably our Rugged, Ultra Low Loss Coaxial Cables and our RF Suppressor Boots.  In addition to these products we also made new options available for our Custom, RF Coaxial Cable Assemblies, and we added new variations to some of our most popular RF Weatherproofing products.  You can learn more about these product releases and updates by clicking on the images/links below.

Gamma’s Next Chapter

In recent months we have promoted several individuals to better meet the needs of our growing company.  As an organization we are thrilled, as we have been able to promote individuals within our own ranks, helping these individuals better realize their own potential while helping Gamma Electronics reach greater heights.  Beyond on what it means for us internally however, we’re very excited as these changes will allow us to better meet the needs of our customers.

Nathan has spent over 20 years in various sales and management roles and has spent close to 2 years with us here at Gamma Electronics as a Regional Account Manager.

Gamma Electronics Blog

AT&T Approves Gamma Clear Cold Shrink

AT&T has further expanded their use of Gamma Tower & RF Weatherproofing products, adding 2 new models of our clear, silicone cold shrink to a growing list of approved products.  CEQ numbers have been issued for each of these new models, which have been designed to cover 2-10 AWG wires.

Just like our black, silicone cold shrink, these new clear versions are pre-expanded, rubber tubes that do not require heat to shrink.  These models of clear, silicone cold shrink deliver the same incredible results that our customers have come to expect from our popular, black, silicone cold shrink, including incredible shrink ratios and amazing weather resistance.  Gamma cold shrink is easy to install and is ideal for organizations like AT&T who like to use our cold shrink on cell phone towers to weather protect connections on antennas and remote radio units.

Below, you will find the exact models and AT&T issued CEQ numbers.

Pricing Changes Take Effect on January 1, 2022

Gamma Electronics Blog

Pricing Changes Take Effect on January 1, 2022

It’s been about 20 months since the COVID-19 pandemic first caused shutdowns here in the United States, which has brought on new challenges that have impacted all of us.  Unfortunately, these unprecedented times have brought significant increases to our freight and operational costs, and in turn, we need to issue a price increase ranging from 4% to 10% across our product lineup.  These price increases will take effect on January 1, 2022.

We appreciate your understanding, and we strongly encourage our customers to take advantage of the lower prices that remain in place through the end of the year.

“How Much are You Raising Prices?”

Prices on all Gamma Products will see a minimum increase of 4% with some products being increased up to 10%.  An updated price list will be provided to our distributors and resellers before the end of the year.

“Does this Impact All of Gamma Electronics’ Products?”

Yes.  All Gamma Products will increase in price by at least 4%.

“Why Are You Raising Prices?”

During 2021 we have seen a significant rise in the costs to acquire materials, as well as an increase in shipping costs.   Our hope was that we would not need to issue a price increase, but as the rising costs become a new normal we must make an adjustment to our pricing so we can continue to provide the quality products and services that our customers expect from us.

“Is this Price Increase Permanent?”

Yes.  As such, we strongly encourage our customers to take advantage of our current pricing, which lasts through the end of 2021.

“Which Products Will See an Increase of More than 4%?”

We are still in the process of assessing how much pricing has to be increased on a product by product basis.  While we do not yet have a finalized list, we are hoping that the majority of our products will stay closer to a 4% increase.  There will, of course, be some products that push closer to 10% and others that fall between 4 and 10%, but our hope and our goal is for most of our products to see a smaller increase.

All pricing changes will be updated on our website by January 1, 2022, and pricing lists will be sent to our distributors and resellers before the end of the year.

Thank you for your understanding and if you have additional questions, please feel free to contact a member of the Gamma team at Sales@GammaElectronics.net.
