L-com Adds New Combination 110 IDC Punch Tool and RJ45 Crimp Tool
L-com introduces an innovative tool that combines a multi-pair IDC punch tool with an RJ45 crimp tool for an easy, single, and economical solution to Ethernet wiring in the field without the need for two separate, expensive tools.
North Andover, MA (PRWEB) February 18, 2013
L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, has introduced a modular Ethernet cabling tool to combine common wiring tasks: punching twisted pairs on an IDC jack and crimping RJ45 plugs. The new tool also retails at a price lower than the combination of separate tools and uses a compact, portable design that is easy for IT personnel to carry from site to site.
The preferred method of connecting solid-conductor Ethernet cable, typically run for in-building Ethernet networks, to Ethernet jacks at wall plates or patch panels is Insulation displacement connections (IDC). These require the internal wires to be punched or pushed into a slot, a process made much easier and quicker by multi-pair punch tools. RJ45 plugs require a separate crimp tool to ensure the pins successfully pierce the insulation on individual wires to make contact. L-com’s new tool eliminates the need for separate tools to complete these two common tasks.
“We noticed these two separate tools were often purchased together and realized that a single IT or networking technician frequently needed both tools on a site,” said David Gallagher, Product Manager. “We then made it a priority to improve this situation with a single, comprehensive tool solution. Now with a single action, an installer can punch all eight contacts in a jack, saving both time and money.”
The new HT-110EZ tool is expected to be stocked in L-com’s North Andover, MA, USA location for immediate shipment when ordered.
