NEWBURY PARK, Calif., Jan. 23, 2020 – Platinum Tools®  (, the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, is proud to announce it will feature the ezEX®38 RJ45 connector during ISE 2020, held in Amsterdam from Feb. 11-14 at RAI Amsterdam, booth #14-K165.

Platinum Tools® ezEX®38 RJ45 connector

“The ezEX38 RJ45 connector is designed for smaller insulation diameters typically found in Cat5e and smaller Cat6 cabling,” explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools, LLC product manager. “The ezEX®38 features the same unique integrated, patented, Hi-Lo stagger load bar, allowing the conductors to pass through the front end of the connector making it easy to verify the wiring sequence before terminating. Although this connector is typically used with Cat5e and smaller Cat6 cabling, it is rated to Cat6A speeds, and is UL listed for PoE and PoE+ installations. The compatible crimping tool is our EXO Crimp Frame® with EXO-EX™ Die (100061C), which trims the conductors perfectly flush with the nose of the connector.”

Additional features and specifications include:

  • Simple one piece/pass through design with no bars or liners
  • Conductor insulation diameter range: .033in. – .038in. (0.84 –0.97mm)
  • Max outer diameter: .290in. (7.36mm)
  • 50 micron gold plated contacts
  • Cat5e/6/6A compliant
  • Solid or stranded, 24-22 AWG conductors
  • Available in UTP and STP versions with internal or external ground
  • TIA, TAA, RoHS 3, UL & FCC compliant

“Platinum Tools has been asked by installers to create an ezEX that will work on the smaller insulation diameters, and we answered the call,” Phillips concluded. “We now offer a full range of connectors for conductor insulation diameters from 0.033 in. thru 0.048 in.”
