Platinum Tools Will Feature the Popular NetXpert XG2 10G Network Tester, and TechLogix Will Feature the MOFO™ PT Series HDMI & USB Wallplate and Insert Solutions
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C., Sept. 26, 2022 – NSI Industries brands’ Platinum Tools®, the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, and TechLogix Network, a leader in innovative audio-visual, security, and datacom solutions, are proud to announce they will feature high bandwidth cabling and signal integrity products during CEDIA Expo 2022, held in Dallas from Sept. 29 – Oct. 1 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, booth #5035. Platinum Tools will feature its popular NetXpert XG2 10G Network Tester, and TechLogix will feature its MOFO™ PT Series HDMI & USB wallplate and insert solutions.
“The NetXpert XG2 sets a new standard in versatility and value for cable and network testing as it provides 10G speed certification over copper and fiber, and complete network testing over copper, fiber, and Wi-Fi systems,” said Sean Rothermel, Platinum Tools product manager. “With Cat6A rapidly gaining dominance, a tester capable of certifying networks to 10G speeds has become more of a necessity. With the NetXpert XG2, we have a single device that performs 10G speed certification, as well as all the network tests you need on copper, fiber, and Wi-Fi systems, even PoE testing up to the PoE type 4 standard. This eliminates the need to buy or carry multiple testers for various jobs.”
In addition, a highly desired and rare key feature is the XG2’s future upgradeability, with new firmware able to be loaded by the end-user via USB or Wi-Fi. “This capability makes the XG2 even more valuable as the investment in this product does not end when future technologies would render most other units obsolete,” Rothermel added. “Upgrading new firmware will allow the XG2 to be used for years while keeping up with current technological necessities.”

- Speed certification to 10G over copper and fiber
- Cable qualification to IEEE standards

“The TechLogix MOFO™ PT Series is the first HDMI & USB plate solution backed with fiber,” explained Cameron Smith, NSI V.P. “Forget clunky extenders and bandwidth-limited copper cable. The MOFO™ PT Series combines fiber-based cabling with traditional table inserts and wallplates, delivering cleaner installations, fewer failure points and better bandwidth. Simply pull, plug and play.”
The MOFO™ PT Series includes USB cables in a variety of lengths, HDMI cables in a variety of lengths, aluminum table insert grommets in black or white finish, and aluminum decora wallplates in black or white finish.
