Platinum Tools unveils 10G field termination kit
By Anthony Capkun
November 23, 2014 – Platinum Tools new 10G termination kit (P/N 90170) includes Cat6A shielded connectors, the Tele-TitanXg Cat6A crimp tool, cable jacket stripper and external ground tab crimper.
The crimp tool is specifically built for the 10G connector, and terminates all pins to industry-specified crimp heights with nominal hand force. The embedded cable strippers for round and flat cables easily adjust and control depth of the blade when stripping Cat5e/6 cables, adds Platinum. The stripper removes the jackets from various twisted pair, multicore and fiber optic cables, and self-adjusts to automatically cut PVC, plenum and others without damaging the braids, foils or conductors. The CT-360 crimper, meantime, performs 360 crimps on the external ground tab of shielded RJ45 connectors for Cat5e, Cat6E, Cat7, Cat5/6 and Cat6A cables.
