Platinum Tools recently announced the availability of its PTS Pro Crimp Tool, which “allows for the termination of both ezEX-RJ45 connectors and the legacy EZ-RJ45 connectors in a single tool with no part changes,” according to product manager Sean Rothermel. “This is a single tool for all Platinum Tools terminations.”

The PTS—which stands for Pass Through Standard—uses a sliding plate to change between the different connector types, and a captive thumb screw to swap between connector styles. The crimper’s connector-locking mechanism enables connectors to click into the tool for termination. Its handle includes cutting and stripping blades for Category 5e and Category 6 cable.

In addition to crimping both pass-through and standard RJ45 connectors, the PTS Pro Crimp Tool offers the following characteristics and capabilities.

  • Wiring guide printed directly on the tool
  • Ergonomic grip for comfort during extended use
  • Replaceable blades
  • Smooth single-cycle operation
  • Accommodation of both unshielded and shielded twisted-pair connectors
