Platinum Tools® Debuts Next Generation Termination System at CEDIA Expo 2016: the EZEX-RJ45®

Shipping this Fall, the Patented EZEX-RJ45 System Provides a Modular Solution to Make the Termination of Larger Diameter Twisted-Pair Cables Easy and Error-Free

NEWBURY PARK, Calif., Aug. 18, 2016 – Platinum Tools® (, the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, is proud to announce it will debut the next generation termination system during CEDIA Expo 2016, held in Dallas from Sept. 15-17 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, booth # 2123. The EZEX-RJ45®Termination System with the new EXO professional heavy duty frame and die crimper is shipping this fall with an MSRP of $90.00 (p/n 100061).

“The EZEX-RJ45® Termination System is the next generation of EZ-RJ45® feed- through connectors designed for larger twisted-pair cables,” explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools, Inc. product manager. “It features new EZEX-RJ45 feed-through connectors with staggered channels matched with the new EXO professional heavy duty frame and die crimper specifically designed to crimp and flush-trim the protruding conductors in a single operation. This patented new termination system couples two concurrently developed and matched solutions for terminating larger cables.”

The EZEX-RJ45 system provides a modular solution to make the termination of larger diameter twisted-pair cables easy and error-free. The connectors have staggered feed through channels that allow for larger diameter conductors (up to 0.048 in.) that are not compatible with standard modular plugs.

“The EZEX-RJ45 Termination System is the evolution of the industry standard EZ-RJ45® connector system,” Phillips continued. “Current modular connectors for larger diameter cables require multiple pieces that can get lost, are difficult to prep, and are very difficult to verify wiring sequence which leads to improper terminations and scrap. The EZEX-RJ45 connector and EXO frame and EX die set system minimizes the cost of operation for the installer by eliminating mistakes in crimping and downtime.”

Additional features and specifications include:

  • Accommodate larger insulated conductors
  • Patented one piece staggered hole design
  • Internal tracking directs wiring sequence
  • Patented load bar nose design
  • Works with solid or stranded wire
  • One-piece design eliminates the possibility of losing smaller pieces
  • Conductors feed through and out the front end allowing the installer to easily see and verify the proper wiring order
  • Designed for self-centering of each wire in its channel
  • Reduces scrap by eliminating wasted crimps
  • Compatible with solid round or stranded wires

The included EXO Crimp Frame and EXOEX Die Set (p/n 100061) features tool-less replacement of dies to minimize down times due to damaged or worn dies. Interchangeable and ambidextrous die sets for left and right-handed operation clean and precise flush-cut connectors. The connector tab locks into the die port for one-handed operation and ensures that the connector is locked in place for proper crimping. Push button gun-style lock (patented) for easy storage, and the precisely aligned contact drivers provide reliable and repeatable crimping.

“The EZ-EX RJ45 termination system is versatile, rugged and precise,” Phillips concluded. “It is the only system that makes terminating larger cables EZ!”
