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.

Comelit - VIP Kit With Planux Monitor With WIFI/3G/4G Remote APP - 8512IM

The kit allows use of the video entry phone system via a door entry monitor as well as tablets and smartphones on the Wi-Fi network, or remotely on 3G (or higher) networks. The gateway in the pack allows connection of other devices (Comelit VIP door entry monitors or PCs) besides the door entry monitor supplied. In all cases, the gateway should be connected to an ASDL router or another device guaranteeing local Wi-Fi and mobile 3G connectivity. Depending on bandwidth limitations, the gateway can serve up to 15 appliances (including door entry monitors, smartphones, tablets and PCs) with 4 simultaneous door entry monitor streams. It also allows "intercom" communication between all of the 16 devices served. For mobile devices, whenever both modes are available and enabled, the app automatically switches. .
