Cat6A is Easy with the EXO Crimp Tool
Introducing the EXO Crimp Tool for Cat6A Networks
The ezEX-RJ45 termination system has all the benefits of the EZ RJ45 system and more. The EXO crimp tool has interchangeable dies to suit a range of cable types and connectors. The EXO die handles connectors for Cat6A cables which are generally much larger overall than Cat5e/6 cables and have larger inner conductors.
In the same way as with the EZ RJ45 system, the inner conductors pass all the way through the connectors, so the colour sequence can be checked before the connector is crimped, saving time and money and preventing wasted terminations.
The EXO Crimp Tool
The professional EXO crimp tool accepts a variety of dies which are easily interchangeable. The dies can be fitted either way around making the tool suitable for left or right handed users. On insertion into the die, the connectors lock into position ensuring perfect alignment prior to the crimping process. The crimping process crimps the connector to the cable, crimps the inner conductors and trims the excess in one single action.
The EXO-EX die is designed for use with ezEX44 and ezEX48 connectors, both suitable for Cat6a cables.
To cope with larger diameter inner conductors, the ezEX-RJ45 connectors have a staggered load platform making them unique to this termination system and consequently, they must be crimped using the EXO crimp tool fitted with the correct EXO-EX die. Connectors are rate up to 10 Gigabit when used with Cat6A cable in Cat6A networks. They consist of a single piece and have no bars or liners. When crimped, they are FCC, RoHS and UL compliant.
The ezEX44 connectors are designed for use with cables whose inner conductors are a maximum of 0.044 inches in diameter including the insulation. In metric, they can range from 1.0mm to 1.12mm and the overall outer diameter of the cable can be a maximum of 7.36mm.
ezEX48 connectors are designed for use with cables whose inner conductors are a maximum of 0.048 inches in diameter including the insulation. In metric, they can range from 1.09mm to 1.22mm and the overall outer diameter of the cable can be a maximum of 7.36mm.
The connectors lock into position within the die prior to crimping ensuring a perfect crimp every time. The crimping process is a single action resulting in crimping of the connector to the cable jacket, connection of the inner conductors to the pins within the plug and trimming of the excess cable protruding through the connector.
The completed termination is fast, reliable and easy to achieve with the minimum of effort.
