In addition, Platinum Tools will also give away their 8-in-1 Ratcheted Stubby Screwdrivers (while supplies last) during the show.

During the show, Platinum Tools will feature:

Platinum Tools’ Waterproof RJ45 Coupler System is rated to IP67 standards in order to meet those harsh environmental conditions commonly found in outdoor and indoor installs, such as wireless towers, security systems, outdoor entertainment venues, industrial manufacturing, LED lighting, emergency communications, marinas, and more.

Including the EXO Crimp Frame® with the EXO-EX and the EZ-RJ45® interchangeable dies, the EXO Termination Kits supply everything needed to terminate Cat5e, Cat6, and Cat6A cables. Using the original EZ-RJ45 Cat5e and ezEX-RJ45®, ezEX®44, and  ezEX®48 connectors give installers the fastest solution for terminating Ethernet cabling.

The shielded and unshielded Unloaded Patch Panels make it easy to mix and match keystones, replace a damaged port, and add new runs. They also make category upgrades easy, maximize limited rack space, and are perfect for residential or small office applications.

“Our new shielded Cat6A/7 RJ45 modular connector is designed to terminate round solid or stranded, 28 – 26 AWG, Cat6A/7 network cable,” said John Phillips, Platinum Tools, Inc. product manager. “The connector contains 3-Prong contacts that hold the wire in place giving a reliable connection, and meets and exceeds 10Gig performance standards.”

Interchangeable and reversible when used with EXO Crimp Frame®, the red EZ-RJ12/11 Die is used to terminate EZ-RJ12/11 connectors. It includes a single cycle crimp and flush trim, and connectors lock into tool for correct positioning during crimp. This die can also crimp other standard “non-EZ” or pass through style connectors. The EZ-RJ12/11 Die now gives the EXO Crimping System ability to crimp telephone connectors, such as RJ12/11.
