Platinum Tools Hi-Performance Cat5e and Cat6 Modular Plugs Now Shipping

The Hi-Performance Cat5e plug, with its unique Hi-Lo stagger design, isolates each conductor at the point of termination. This allows air, the world's best insulator, to surround each conductor and thus eliminates NEXT, FEXT, and AXT.

"The Hi-Performance Cat5e plug, with its unique Hi-Lo stagger design, isolates each conductor at the point of termination," explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools, Inc. product manager.
