CEDIA Q&A: Platinum Tools Terminates Cat5e/6/6A Cables Easily

If you ask just one question at Platinum Tools’ CEDIA 2017 booth #4452, it should be, ‘How do I terminate Cat5e/6/6A cables?’


CEDIA 2017 will be here before you know it. Before the show, CE Pro caught up with Todd Cota, VP of sales, Platinum Tools, about what the company will have in store for CEDIA attendees in booth #4452 in San Diego from Sept. 5-9.

What would you say to dealers who are stumbling across your company for the first time?

Let me show you how Platinum Tools can help save you time and money using our patented products and reduce truck roll backs.

What would you say to dealers who are already familiar with your product line?

Have you seen our latest innovative products? Platinum Tools continues to develop new products that address the most challenging aspects facing today’s integrators. Anything from large cable sizes to advanced testing certifications — we have streamlined the installation processes.

If a dealer/integrator stops by your booth with only 5 minutes to spare, what’s the one product he should examine or one question he should ask?

How do I terminate Cat5e/6/6A cables? Platinum Tools ezEX-RJ45 connector is a single connector solution for terminating Cat5e/6/6A cables. It features a unique, integrated Hi-Lo stagger load bar and allows ‘big’ conductors to pass through the front end of the connector, making it easy to verify the wiring sequence before terminating.

Think of your closest competitor (company or product). What is one thing you offer that they don’t? Please be specific.

The main thing Platinum Tools offers that our competition does not is a focused product mix dedicated to the Low Voltage market that will streamline the installation process for the integrator.

We have innovative products that focus on the Cut, Strip, Terminate & Test of hand termination of wire and cable. Several of our patented products are made in the U.S.A. (ezEX-RJ45 Connectors, Network Testers).

Why are you looking forward to CEDIA coming to San Diego for the first time?

Having CEDIA in San Diego this year could bring new attendees to the show. We are always looking to introduce new people to our product line.
