Platinum Tools will feature its structured wiring solutions line during CEDIA 2015, held in Dallas, TX, from October 15–17 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, booth #6606. “Quite simply, we have complete connectivity solutions for your entire network,” said John Phillips, Platinum Tools product manager. “Platinum Tools has been a leader in providing products and solutions for the structured wiring networking world of data, voice, and video for nearly two decades. Now, with keystone jacks, couplers, and multi-port wall plates complementing our exiting popular products such as the EZ-SnapJack, our catalog has exactly what the installer needs for virtually any and every application.” The Platinum Tools keystone jacks and couplers for Cat-3, Cat-5e, Cat-6, and Cat-6A applications are color coded to make EIA/TIA 568A/B wiring easy. They feature 50-micron gold contacts, meet/exceed EIA/TIA category standards, are compatible with industry-standard wall plates, and are RoHS compliant and UL listed. “Our wall plates are compatible with most industry-standard keystone jacks and EZ-SnapJacks and are engineered to prevent possible fracturing from over tightened screws,” said Phillips. The 1-, 2-, and 4-port wall plates are also UL and RoHS compliant, one-piece, single-gang, 4.5-inch x 2.75-inch, include color matching mounting screws, and are designed to fit standard single-gang outlet boxes. “Our reusable, time saving EZ-SnapJack has been designed to fit industry-standard wall plates and is perfect for new or retrofit commercial network and home automation installations,” said Phillips. “Depending on specific needs and circumstances and with the convergence in our marketplace, our newly expanded structured wiring solutions alongside the EZ-SnapJack and other options allow the low-voltage installer to quickly install a keystone jack correctly each time. This will save the installer time and money associated with re-visiting the job site to fix the common problem of poor connector terminations and poorly installed mounts and fixtures.” SubscribeFor more stories like this, and to keep up to date with all our market leading news, features and analysis, sign up to our newsletter here.
