Featured During CEDIA Expo 2017, the RJ45 CAT6A Connectors are the New Option for Stranded Conducts (24-22 AWG) 7/17/2017 2:59 PM

NEWBURY PARK, Calif., July 17, 2017 - Platinum Tools® (www.platinumtools.com), the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, is proud to announce the launch of the new RJ45 Cat6A stranded 10Gig connectors (p/ns 106195, 106197C, 106198C). Now shipping, Platinum Tools will feature the new connectors during CEDIA Expo 2017, held in San Diego from Sept. 7-9 at the San Diego Convention Center, booth # 4452.

“Streaming media whether data, audio or video, is on a sharp rise and users are demanding more bandwidth,” explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools, Inc. product manager. “That means bigger cable, commonly referred to as CAT6e, CAT6A and CAT7, and usually shielded. For maximum performance, connector and crimp tool choice is critical. Our current 10 Gig CAT6A Solid connectors have been very successful and so we decided to expand our offering with these connectors for stranded conductors. Now, our CAT6A/10Gig termination system, which is compatible with our Tele-TitanXg™ and Tele-TitanXg™ 2.0 Crimp tools, not only meets, but exceeds these requirements and is the new option for stranded conducts (24-22 awg).”
