Terminating Cat6a Plugs In The Field

As many of you know, putting an RJ45 plug on a cat5 or cat6 cable takes a bit of practice. Getting the twists tight almost to the tip on the newer cat 6a plugs can be really challenging. When you are terminating cable on the ground at a well-lit work bench is one thing but when you’re up on a ladder in a low light environment getting the termination right becomes a bit more fun yet.  Recently, Platinum Tools introduced a new Cat6a plug designed for those field install situations. The Cat6a Flex Connector is a tool less design that makes termination drastically easier than standard RJ-45 plugs on the market. Click here for more info on this innovative product:
