Q: What’s the difference between Impact and Non-impact punchdown tools?
A: Impact Punchdown tools are designed for any volume of terminations. They are spring loaded which provides a mechanical advantage when punching. Impact punchdown tools provide most of the force required. Another advantage of an impact punchdown tool is they will give a cleaner and more consistent punch because the tool controls the force applied to the wire.
Non-Impact Punchdown Tools are designed for low volume terminations. They are a great choice for home users who only plan on installing a few lines. Unlike impact punchdown tools the user must provide all of the force required to punch seat and cut the wires. This can become tiresome for large installations. Non-impact tools a generally less expensive than impact tools.
