Platinum Tools EXO Crimp Frame w/ EXO-EX Die:
This EXO Crimp Frame comes equipped with Platinum Tools EXO-EX die which is designed specifically for the exEZ-RJ45 connector. If you are not familiar with the ezEX-RJ45 connectors, they were engineered specifically for terminating larger diameter twisted-pair cables with conductor sizes up to .048in. The exEZ-RJ45 allows for the larger wire by cleverly staggering each conductor. As with all EZ connectors, the wiring can be quickly verified by the wires protruding prior to crimping. It is important to note the exEZ-RJ45 connectors can only be crimped with this EXO crimper and EXO-EX Die.
