Platinum Tools Cat5E EZ-RJ45 Connector
As anyone who has ever planned their network knows, terminating Ethernet cables isn’t necessarily hard. It can be a tedious process, though, and it is necessary to speed and functionality to get it correct. If you have a lot of cables to connect or if you’re a network professional, the amount of time spent on getting conductors just right can be frustrating and even wasteful. You have to measure carefully to ensure you are clipping the precise length of wire to fit snugly into your connector and often you have to assume your pins have stayed in the right order before you crimp them.
Platinum Tools, a leading designer and manufacturer of network wiring instruments, has created a patented EZ system to eliminate many of the headaches associated with those tiny connectors. Product number 100003C is a pack of Cat5E EZ-RJ45 connectors for Cat5E installations. These connectors can be used with most ordinary crimpers, but the full benefits can only be experienced when used with an EZ-RJ45 crimp tool.
The initial steps for adding an EZRJ45 connector onto a Cat5E Ethernet cable is the same. You score the outer jacket and remove an inch and a half, snipping the pull thread to get it out of your way once you have enough of the conductors exposed. Untwist the pairs and line them up according to your chosen wiring diagram. Then, instead of measuring where you need to snip off the excess wire, you skip straight to inserting the cable into the connector. Thanks to the all-transparent pull-through design, you can quickly check to make sure the correct wire pinout has been maintained by checking the wires that have come out the end of the connector and by looking into the body of the connector itself. Once everything is lined up properly, crimp the connector on. The EZ-RJ45 tool will crimp and cut away the extra wire all in one squeeze.
