HUNTERSVILLE, N.C., June 24, 2021 - Platinum Tools® (, the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, is proud to announce that it will give away one ezEX-RJ45® Starter Kit (p/n 90188) on each day of ISC West 2021, and one new NetXpert XG2 10G Cable & Network Tester on the last day of the show. ISC West 2021 will be held in Las Vegas, NV from July 19-21 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center. Potential winners need only to come by the Platinum Tools booth #4036 for entry.

“The NetXpert XG2 sets a new standard in versatility and value for cable and network testing,” 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 today’s networks, twisted pair cables are demanding more speed and bandwidth, often carrying power in PoE applications.

“To help meet these requirements and the changes in cable they have necessitated, customers are converting to the ezEX line of connectors,” Rothermel added. “Platinum Tools’ new ezEX RJ45® Starter Kit provides an easy way to make the switch and meet these higher performance demands.”

The ezEX RJ45® Starter Kit contains:

  • EXO Crimp Frame® with EXO-EX Die
  • ezEX®38 connector (25pcs.)
  • ezEX®44 connector (50pcs.)
  • ezEX48® connector (25pcs.)
  • ezEX® strain reliefs in asst. colors (20pcs.)

The patented EXO Crimp Frame® with the interchangeable EXO-EX Die is designed to terminate the patented, pass-through ezEX-RJ45 connectors. This new series of connectors will cover a wide range of conductor and cable jacket diameters, making it easy to select the right connector for your cable. All three sizes, ezEX38, ezEX44, and ezEX48, shielded or non-shielded, are rated for 10 Gig and PoE+ and can be used for Cat6A, Cat6, and Cat5e, covering a full conductor diameter range of 0.38in. to 0.48in. (0.83mm – 1.22mm).
