CAMARILLO, Calif., March 25, 2014 - Platinum Tools(R) (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 complete turnkey field kit (P/N 90170) that includes 10-Gig Cat6A shielded connectors, the Tele-Titan™ Xg Cat6A crimp tool, cable stripper and external crimper. Now shipping and available to the security market, the new system, which exceeds 10-Gig performance standard requirements for streaming high bandwidth across Cat6E, Cat6A, and Cat7 cable, will be featured at 2014 ISC West, held in Las Vegas, Nev. from April 2-4 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, booth 4045.


"Streaming media traffic, whether security 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 security 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 stripper and external shielded crimper you achieve an 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.

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
