NEWBURY PARK, Calif., Aug. 19, 2015 - Platinum Tools(R) (www.platinumtools.com), the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, is proud to announce it has expanded its structured wiring solutions to include new Keystone Jacks, Couplers, and Multi-Port Wall Plates for data, voice, and video installations and applications. Platinum Tools will feature its structured wiring solutions line during CEDIA Expo 2015, held in Dallas from Oct. 15-17 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, booth # 6606.


"Quite simply, we have complete connectivity solutions for your entire network," explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools, Inc. product manager. "Platinum Tools has been a leader in providing products and solutions for the structured wiring networking world of data, voice, and video for nearly two decades. Now, with Keystone Jacks, Couplers, and Multi-Port Wall Plates complementing our exiting popular products such as the EZ-SnapJack, our catalog has exactly what the installer needs for virtually any and every application."

Platinum Tools' Keystone Jacks and Couplers for Cat3, Cat5e, Cat6, and Cat6A applications are color coded to make EIA/TIA 568A/B wiring easy. They feature 50 micron gold contacts, meet/exceed EIA/TIA category standards, they are compatible with industry standard wall plates, and are RoHS compliant and UL listed.

"Our Wall Plates are compatible with most industry standard keystone jacks and EZ-SnapJacks and are engineered to prevent possible fracturing from over tightened screws," added Phillips. The 1-, 2-, and 4-port Wall Plates are also UL & RoHS compliant, one-piece, single-gang, 4.5-inch x 2.75-inch, include color matching mounting screws, and are designed to fit standard single-gang outlet boxes.

"Our reusable, time saving EZ-SnapJack has been designed to fit industry standard wall plates and is perfect for new or retrofit commercial network and home automation installations," said Phillips. "Depending on specific needs and circumstances and with the convergence in our marketplace, our newly expanded structured wiring solutions alongside the EZ-SnapJack and other options allow the low voltage installer to quickly install a keystone jack correctly each time. This will save the installer time and money associated with re-visiting the job site to fix the common problem of poor connector terminations and poorly installed mounts and fixtures."

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.

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.
