The company announced that it will give away three of its EXO ezEX-RJ45 Termination & Test Kits during InfoComm 2017, held in Orlando, FL from June 14-16.

Platinum Tools, a specialist in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, announced that it will give away three of its EXO ezEX-RJ45 Termination & Test Kits during InfoComm 2017, held in Orlando, FL from June 14-16 at the Orange County Convention Center. Potential winners can come by the Platinum Tools booth #1961 during the first three days of the show and get scanned in order to gain entry to the daily giveaway. One winner will be awarded each day of the show.

The winner of Residential Systems “Best of Show” CEDIA 2016 award, the 2017 BICSI Winter Conference Winner for Connectors and Connectorization, and the Sound & Video Contractor “2017 Best of Show” at NAB 2017, Platinum Tools' ezEX-RJ45 Termination System with the new EXO Crimp Frame is shipping now. According to a press release, the ezEX-RJ45 Termination & Test Kit (p/n 90148) giveaway includes the following items: EXO Crimp Frame with EXO-EX Die; 5-inch electricians scissors; Cat5e/6 cable jacket stripper; ezEX 44 RJ45 connectors (30 pcs); the TP500 LanSeeker cable tester; and a hanging pouch.

“This is the ideal, complete kit,” asserts John Phillips, Platinum Tools, Inc. product manager. “Tester, crimper, scissors, stripper, and connectors, all in a handy hanging pouch. Every professional should have this on hand during every call.”

Per the company, "the new patented EXO Crimp Frame is a RJ45 crimp tool that can terminate multiple sizes of cables and conductors. The crimp frame highlights two interchangeable dies that work with EZ-RJ45 and ezEX-RJ45 connectors. The tool design allows for future upgrades by purchasing a new die. The new ezEX-RJ45 feed-through connectors with staggered channels matched with the new EXO Crimp Frame + EXO-EX Die are specifically designed to crimp and flush-trim the protruding conductors in a single operation. This patented new termination system couples two concurrently developed and matched solutions for terminating larger cables."

“In today’s networks, twisted pair cables are demanding more speed and bandwidth,” continues Phillips. “To help meet these requirements, Cat5e/6/6A cables have increased in size. Both the outer diameter of the cable and the insulation diameter of the conductors are larger and vary by manufacturer, making cable and connector compatibility a challenge. Platinum Tools new patented ezEX-RJ45 Termination System is the solution, providing greater cable-to-connector compatibility to meet higher performance demands.”

Set to debut at the 2017 Infocomm show, Platinum Tools' LanSeeker is billed as a fast, rugged cable tester and tone generator in one unit, displaying cable test results using LED indicators on the main and the self-stored remote unit. "An easy-to-use professional grade tool, the LanSeeker is ideal for installation and troubleshooting of twisted pair security and datacom cables, supporting both unshielded or shielded twisted pair, making it a must have for residential and commercial cable installers," adds the company.
