Weidmüller Stripax. I've got two old ones, that I'm nursing through their retirement, but they work for me.

I've also got one of these and one of these. They both work, but obviously not so good for electronics.

The cable you're trying to work with looks very much screened to me.

Many thanks for all the advice on wire strippers, I have discounted all the ones that require 2 hands to used, pulling in opposite directions because they are fine if working with new cables and have the space and length of cable to be able to grip it correctly and safely. In my case, that is not applicable, one slip and the other items on the PCB or even the meter could be damaged by the reaction to slipping.

So I have selected this pair to try out, where any slippage is not putting other at risk of potential damage and includes, my knuckles   :-DD

Nice one spec, it will be always a pleasure to use.
I have the same with 3 blades set. On top of that you can strip cables in the middle not just on the ends... This could be a game changer sometime.

Can you check if the ultrasonic sensor sweep it frequency or it use just a constant frequency?

More details in the www  for example here.

I have the suspect cheap ones uses constant frequency. I can't understand why those are so low price now.... just china or something else?

Ah don't go crazy, your hears should be good enough to detect the sweep.

Here's two other individuals who need stop smoking the funny stuff and come back to reality....

He also has a 454 for $500.  :palm:



Yes, the calibration unit is a rare item but not THAT rare.

WTF. The 284 is a crazy fast rise time pulse generator too (tunnel diode), but not for that much money.

As of 5 minutes ago this is the electrical outage map for my power company. Nearly 90K customers still without power and may not get it back until the weekend. I was damn lucky, it dipped a few times but came right back on.

What the F**K, thats like calling white, black and black, white just how the bloody hell are you meant to even have an appreciation of a colour with using the name to describe two completely different colours (well in this case its still I suppose a shade of pink, just darker). A colour like that would not make it to my man nest if I was single, especially as you live in an area of high ambient temperatures, it just would make me feel even hotter than ever, its still a girly colour, are you trying to tell us something here??  :-DD :-DD
