Kit includes shielded connectors, crimp tool, cable jacket stripper and crimper March 31, 2016

NEWBURY PARK, Calif.—Attendees at the 2016 NAB Show will get the chance to see Platinum Tools’ new 10-Gig Termination Kit. The system exceeds 10-Gig performance standard requirements for streaming high bandwidth across Cat6E, Cat6A and Ca7 cables.

The full Termination Kit features a 10-Gig Cat6A shielded connectors, the Tele-TitanXg crimp tool, Cyclops 2 cable jacket stripper and CT-360 external ground tab crimper.

The shielded connectors are UL and RoHS compliant and feature a max cable OD of 0.335-inches, a max conductor OD of 0.053-inches, and is capable of exceeding the 10-Gig performance standard. The Tele-TitanXg was designed for Platinum’s 10-Gig connector and terminates all pins to industry specified crimp heights with nominal hand force; it also includes a built-in cable cutter and embedded cable strippers.

In addition, the kit’s Cyclops 2 removes the cable jacket from twister pair, multicore and fiber optic cables; it is able to self-adjust to automatically cut PVC, plenum and others without damaging braids, foils or conductors. The CT-360 performs 360 crimps on the external ground tab of shielded RJ45 connectors for Cat5e, Cat6E, Cat7, Cat5/6 and Cat6A cables for a concentric termination with full control.

Platinum Tools is now shipping the 10-Gig Termination Kit at a price of $240.
