Platinum Tools to Launch Bendable RJ45 Flex Connector at InfoComm

Platinum Tools says the Flex Connector is the first bendable RJ45 connector and allows for the connection and installation of devices nearly flush with the wall.

NEWBURY PARK, Calif. — Platinum Tools announces it will launch what it claims is the first bendable RJ45 connector during InfoComm 2018, held June 6-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Available in shielded and non-shielded versions (p/ns 106220; 106230), the new flex connector is now shipping.

The flex connector will allow you to connect and install devices nearly flush with the wall, with no need for wall plates or jumpers, according to the company.

Cables can drop at 90° down or 45° up. The Flex Connector is rated for electronic safety and security applications: PoE+ rated, 1GHz and 10-Gigabit certified for high data traffic.

“Flex Connector is the first bendable RJ45 connector and makes network cable terminations easier than ever,” says Jason Chesla, Platinum Tools marketing manager. “The unique patented design ensures top tier performance for Cat5e/6/6A cabling up to 9.0mm with 24-22 AWG conductors, providing a low cost, easy termination solution with high performance and superior connectivity options. No need for crimp tools. Set it up, close it and go.”

The flex connector accommodates multiple category sizes (Cat5e/6/6A) up to 9.0mm with 24-22 AWG Conductors. Factory pre-set contacts are said to improve reliability. It also meets the following cable standards: ISO 11801 Edition 2, EIA/TIA 568-C.2, TIA1096-A, BICSI/ANSI D005 and ANSI/TIA-862- A.

You can find Platinum Tools at InfoComm in booth C3445.
