The PAT2S reel-fed automatic cable-tie installation system is for use on bundles up to 2 inches in diameter and uses reels of 2,500 ties to install PLT2S-VMR continuously molded cable ties with a minimum loop tensile strength of 50 lbs. By squeezing the trigger, the tool applies, tensions, and cuts off the tie in approximately one second. Ties are UL-recognized and meet MIL Standard MS3367-1. Tension is adjustable to provide optimum resistance to lateral bundle movement.
