NEWBURY PARK, Calif., March 11, 2019 – Platinum Tools® (www.platinumtools.com), the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, is proud to announce the launch of the new ezEX®38 RJ45 connector during the 2019 NAB Show, held in Las Vegas, Nev. from April 8-11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth # C11447.
“Now available, the ezEX38 RJ45 connector is designed for smaller insulation diameters typically found in Cat5e and smaller Cat6 cabling,” explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools, Inc. 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. This connector is typically used with Cat5e and smaller Cat6 cabling. The compatible crimping tool is our EXO Crimp Frame® and EXO-EX Die™ (100061C).”
Additional features and specifications include:
- Simple one piece/pass through design, no bars or liners
- Insulation Diameter (Conductor) Size range: .033in. – .038in. (0.84 –0.97mm)
- Max Outer Diameter: .290in. (7.36mm)

“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. “Now we can offer a full range of insulation diameters from 0.033 in. thru 0.048 in.”
