MOORPARK, Calif., May 19, 2009 – Platinum Tools (
), the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation and hand termination of wire and cable, announces the launch of the EZ-RJPRO HD modular crimp tool. Now shipping with a MSRP of $84.95, the EZ-RJ has been designed to terminate all EZ-RJ45 (Cat3, 5, 5e, and 6) and EZ-RJ11 (4 and 6 contact) plugs and can also be used to terminate most regular RJ45 and RJ12/11 plugs.
“The EZ-RJPRO HD has been designed for the professional installer providing a ratcheted, high leverage, ultra stable platform for consistent, repeatable terminations,”? explained Lee Sachs, Platinum Tools, Inc. president and general manager. “This heavy duty tool is the perfect solution when working with high performance, larger OD cables that are tougher to terminate due to larger wire gauges, thicker, harder insulation on the conductors and pair separating splines. Not only will you overcome these connectivity obstacles but you can be assured that every termination will meet FCC specifications.”?
The patented, rugged PRO HD tool, which will reliably crimp and trim wires at the same time, has an all steel frame, PVC handles, and a rust resistant, black oxide finish to stand up to the rigors of field installations. It will also terminate plugs made for either solid or stranded cable and even includes a 568A and 568B color code etched into the side of the handle for EZ reference.
“This heavy duty tool includes integral cable cutter/jacket strippers for round (Cat 3-6) and flat (silver satin) cable,”? continued Sachs. “This ratchet style tool provides optimal pressure to all contacts for a precise crimp while the vertical action assures all contacts are terminated to the proper depth.”?
Additional features of the EZ-RJPROïƒ¤ HD modular crimp tool include:
• Zero flex frame prevents torque loss during the crimping cycle
• Tool steel die head assembly provides 360 degrees of connector support during crimp
• Clean, ultra flush trim on the EZ-RJ45A® extended conductors
• Expanded surface area on contact drivers delivers full, uniform crimp force
• Built in wire cutter and strippers
• Domestic and foreign patents have been issued
The EZ-RJPRO HD Crimp Tool uses the EZRJ45A® patented ‘crimp & trim’ system and is designed to handle larger dimensional size cables.
• EZ-RJ45A® CAT 5E connectors
• EZ-RJ45A® Shielded CAT 5E connectors
• EZ-RJ45A® CAT 6+ connectors
• EZ-RJ45A® Shielded CAT 6 connectors
• EZ-RJ12/11 connectors
• Compatible with all other RJ45, RJ12 and RJ11 modular plug connectors (except AMP)
“We continue to innovate and improve products for our unique EZ-RJ45 plug,”? added Sachs. “Products designed to increase an installer’s efficiency have been the key to our success and they will continue to dominate our product line in the future.”?
