NSI Industries brands’ Platinum Tools, provider of solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, and TechLogix Network, maker of AV, security and datacom solutions, will feature long distance and enterprise cabling solutions during CEDIA Expo 2022 (booth #5035), being held in Dallas from Sept. 29 – Oct. 1 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.
“Fiber optic cable isn’t all the same and anyone who’s tried to terminate a discount cable has likely experienced brittle glass and ripped outer jackets,” says Cameron Smith, VP, NSI. “The TechLogix ECO Series delivers better products with a superior installation. All ECO Series cables are built in the United States with Corning ClearCurve and SMF-28 bend-insensitive optical glass. This means tighter bend radiuses, stronger pull ratings, and ultimately more durable optical strands that survive rough handling and termination in the field.”
ECO Series fiber optic strands are made entirely with bend-insensitive glass, providing durability and compatibility with fusion spliced and other low-loss connector systems, according to the company. The cables are 100% compatible with standard tools and connector systems, regardless of manufacturer, NSI adds.
The connectors leverage a push-button system and vertical pressure, ensuring optical strands are never compressed during installation and operation, the company says. Additionally, ECO Series connectors don’t require any proprietary tools or epoxy, are reusable through five termination cycles, and are compatible with all standard fiber optic cables.
Platinum Tools’ HPH J-Hook line is available in four colors, four sizes, and in standard and batwing configurations.
“Our HPH J-Hooks have been designed to support today’s modern high performance network cable installations, such as data centers, commercial structures, manufacturing facilities, and residential applications,” says Sean Rothermel, Platinum Tools product manager. “The ‘Snap-Lock’ retainer is easy-to-use and reuse, firmly securing cables every time and eliminating the use of cable and velcro ties.”
Available in red, blue and black variations (in addition to the original white), the HPH J-Hooks feature a smooth, radiused 2-inch wide base with no pressure points, and are UL listed, Plenum-rated, RoHS and TIA compliant. The colors allow easy identification of different cable runs, such as separating AV, security, fire and data systems.
With bend radius of more than 3.5 inches, Platinum Tools’ HPH J-Hooks meet and exceed TIA’s bend radius standards. This prevents deformation to the cables such as indentations, pinches or creases, the company says.
HPH J-Hooks come in four sizes: the HPH16 (1 inch), HPH32 (2 inch), HPH48 (3 inch), and the HPH64 (4 inch) for all cable management uses.
