Platinum Tools provides 10 Shielded EZ-RJ45 Connectors to create cables that meet Category 5e and 6 standards. These connectors feature a fully shielded design with an internal ground that improves noise immunity at all frequencies, especially at above 30 MHz. This shielded design reduces crosstalk and increases performance. To verify your termination, each connector comes outfitted with thru holes that let you pass colored networking wires through and out in the front. In addition, these connectors come in a clamshell packaging and are compatible with solid or stranded wires.
