Platinum Tools Dishes on its Termination System, Ethernet Speed Certifier
Platinum Tools expects to see continued growth in the security segment of their market due to PoE.
DALLAS — Security integrators can’t properly perform their job without the right tools. Fortunately, Platinum Tools has been developing, manufacturing and sourcing quality solutions for the preparation, installation and hand termination of wire and cable since 1997.
SSI spoke with the company to learn about its latest offerings.
What is the top product or offering by your company and what makes it unique or special?
In today’s networks, twisted pair cables are demanding more speed and bandwidth. To help meet these requirements, Cat5e/6/6A cables have increased in size. Both the outer diameter of the cable and the insulation diameter of the conductors are larger and vary by manufacturer, making cable and connector compatibility a challenge. The new patented ezEX-RJ45 Termination System is the single connector solution — providing greater cable to connector compatibility to meet higher performance demands.
What other products or offerings would you like to highlight, and what are some of their unique qualities?
The Net Chaser Ethernet Speed Certifier offers a complete solution to test and speed certify the data-carrying capabilities of Ethernet network cables up to 1 Gb/s by testing for noise in the network, detecting faults in the cable wiring, and ensuring that cables are able to support the speed capabilities of active equipment.
What else is new or noteworthy about the company for 2017?
We continue to add twisted pair test solutions to our extensive line of “Cut, Strip, Terminate & Test” products.
What is your company’s overall value proposition to installing security dealers/integrators? Why should they do business with you?
Platinum Tools, founded in 1997, was created based upon two very simple objectives. First, develop, manufacture and source the absolute best possible solutions for the preparation, installation and hand termination of wire and cable. Second, implement an operational infrastructure that can deliver these products in an efficient, timely and high quality manner.
What do you see as some of the top opportunities in the marketplace right now?
Due to PoE, we continue to see great growth in the security segment of our market.
