CAMARILLO, Calif., July 30, 2013 - Platinum Tools' (www.platinumtools.com), the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation and hand termination of wire and cable, is proud to announce the launch of the new 10Gig Termination Kit. A turnkey field kit (P/N 90170) that includes Cat6A shielded connectors, the Tele-Titan™Xg Cat6A crimp tool, cable jacket stripper and external ground tab crimper. Now shipping, the new system, which exceeds 10-Gig performance standard requirements for streaming high bandwidth across Cat6E, Cat6A, and Cat7 cable, will be featured at the 2013 CEDIA Expo, held in Denver from Sept. 26-28 at the Colorado Convention Center, booth 529.


"Streaming media traffic, whether, data, audio or video, is on a sharp rise and networks are demanding more bandwidth," explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools, Inc. product manager. "That means bigger and usually shielded cable, such as Cat6E, Cat6A and Cat7. Our new 10Gig Kit terminates larger cable to meet 10-Gig standards."

The connector choice is critical. In today's world, it needs to be at least 10-Gig rated, cable compatible, and field-terminate capable. "Our 10-Gig Cat6A shielded connector not only meets, but exceeds these requirements," Phillips added. "Used along with the Tele-TitanXg Crimp Tool, our cable jacket stripper and external ground tab shielded crimper you achieve a consistent and optimal termination every time."

10-Gig Shielded Connector RJ45 Cat6A (P/N 106190) specs:
• Max cable OD: 8.5mm/0.335in.
• Max conductor OD: 1.35mm/0.053in.
• Exceeds 10-Gig performance standard
• UL and RoHS compliant

Tele-TitanXg Crimp Tool (P/N 12515)
Compact, balanced and fits in the hand or pocket easily. Specifically built for our 10-Gig connector, it terminates all pins to industry specified crimp heights with nominal hand force.

Platinum Tools EZ-RJPRO Termination Pod

Platinum Tools EZ-RJPRO Termination Pod

Our new EZ-RJPRO Termination Pod is designed for the professional installer providing everything he needs for consistent, repeatable terminations and overall quicker and easier installations," explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools, Inc. product manager. "This heavy duty kit is the perfect solution when working with both delicate as well as high performance, larger OD cables that are tougher to terminate due to larger wire gauges, thicker, harder insulation on the conductors and pair separating splines. Not only will you overcome these connectivity obstacles but you can be assured that every termination will meet FCC specifications.
