    Anyone know if the VT200 will be able to compres the right angle compression Connectors.
    Or will I need special tooling.


    Way down in my bucket, I also have a Cable Pro compression tool as well.

    No, the VT200 can't compress right angle connectors

    I doubt it as the requirements are different

    A brief research - without doing more

    Ideal has one and it's made in the USA !
    ICM has one but you need to change tips out

    I need to verify if the Cable Pro will do it. Tool looks big and klunky though.

    Why do you want to use right angle connectors instead of using a regular connector and a right angle adapter? That way if the cable needs to be relocated where the right angle was no longer needed (or problematic) you just remove the adapter and you're good to go.

    I prefer single connections versus 2...
