BTX Introduces the New MaxBlox™ CD -MX915HH Half -Hood For Proper Strain Relief

BTX is building on its MaxBlox™ product line with the addition of the new CD-MX915HH half-hood.

HAWTHORNE, N.Y. ― Feb. 11, 2008 ― BTX is building on its MaxBlox™ product line with the addition of the new CD -MX915HH half -hood. Functioning as a full -size hood in a smaller footprint, the new half -hood provides installers with optimal strain relief in high -density applications for broadcast, A/V, home theater, and security.


Traditionally, when mounting a D -Sub connector to a device, plate, or panel, the only way to achieve proper strain relief has been to use a full -size hood or to tie off the wire to a rack rail using a cable tie. However, the width and/or height of the hood usually does not allow installers to mount the connectors side by side, and the depth of the hood is sometimes too long to fit behind a wall when mounted to a plate.

To solve this problem, BTX is introducing the MaxBlox CD -MX915HH half -hood, which acts as a full -size hood, but within a much smaller footprint. The CD -MX915HH is the exact same width as the MaxBlox D -Sub connector, making it ideal for any high -density application where numerous MaxBlox D -Subs need to be mounted side by side.

In addition, a small slotted tray extends out the back of the CD -MX915HH, providing the perfect place to secure the wire with a standard cable tie, for the ultimate strain relief. The CD -MX915HH works exclusively with the patent -pending BTX MaxBlox D -Sub connectors.

"We had been approached by many customers asking us to design and manufacture a solution for side -by -side mounting of our solderless DB9s on a device," said Greg Schwartz, president of BTX. "The problem, however, was not only the issue of real estate, but also strain relief. Our new CD -MX915HH half -hood offers installers an innovative solution to both problems."

The new MaxBlox CD -MX915HH half -hood is available to installers immediately.
