MAX® In -Wall PRO Series Line Designed to Give Dealers Code -Compliant Power Solutions

Panamax, The Power Conditioning Specialist, Offers Whole-House Clean Power Distribution

PETALUMA, CA - September 5, 2003 - Panamax, the industry -leading manufacturer of power conditioning and protection products, is introducing the first family in their breakthrough Pro Series - the MAX® In -Wall line, designed to provide the installer with multiple solutions for clean power and signal distribution.


Designed with Michael Candea, Special Projects Designer for Audio Advisors, the In -Wall family provides discreet wiring alternatives for properly protecting and grounding remote flat panel displays or ceiling -mounted video projectors. "I've seen a variety of unacceptable approaches to solving power quality issues for these displays," stated Michael. "However, I am certain that the In -Wall family of products will provide installers practical and code -compliant solutions".

Five MAX® In -Wall products offer the professional installer and system integrator the necessary flexibility in creating clean power and signal distribution solutions in a variety of applications:

MIW -PowerKit -TL - The powerkit provides the ultimate, three -stage power solution for remote displays. In STAGE ONE, the specially designed power cord and twist lock combination plug and receptacle allow remote displays to access clean power from your Panamax power distribution component at the main signal processor. STAGE TWO, the in -wall power cable delivers clean power to the display location, feeding the final in -wall outlet. STAGE THREE, the final in wall outlet provides a secure connection and additional filtration to eliminate any noise that may have been introduced along the way. This three -stage power solution eliminates competing ground reference points, providing clean power to remote displays.


Additional low voltage modules easily snap into the MIW wall kits for professional and code compliant installations.

MIW -Power - The AC power outlet accepts a variety of low voltage signal modules to create isolated ground reference points at each outlet location.

MIW -5RCA & MIW -VGA - These two low voltage signal modules are used in conjunction with the MIW -PowerKit -TL and MIW -Power units. The signal modules are designed to accommodate RGBHV, component and stereo audio, as well as composite and IR signals with a maximum of five RCA connections (MIW -5RCA), and HDDB15 cabling (MIW -VGA). The MIW -VGA includes a 3.5mm stereo phone jack for audio.

MIW -B&O - This module provides fixed architecture for one AC outlet, one master link, and one power link connector.

The flexibility offered by the MAX® In Wall family provides the installer with multiple solutions for clean power and signal distribution. The In -Wall Module Series, the first PRO Series release, is scheduled to ship in August.
