Panamax to Power Up its Product Showcase at CES 2005 (LVCC Booth 20528, South Hall 1)

PETALUMA, CA - December 21, 2004 - Panamax, the leading producer of power conditioning, distribution, and protection products, will exhibit the newest additions to its product line at the Consumer Electronics Show 2005 (Jan 6 -9, 2005). The company will be located in booth 20528 in the Las Vegas Convention Center's South Hall 1 and will display such products as the new MAX® 1500 -UPS, MAX® 5510 -Pro, and its MAX® In -Wall Family with the new Metal Outlet Box enhancement. The Panamax team invites installers and members of the press who want to get the maximum performance from their home theaters, audio systems, and other entertainment equipment to visit booth 20528 to discover the source of pure sight and sound.

"CES attendees who stop by the Panamax booth will get a close look at the state -of -the -art in power conditioning for both residential and commercial entertainment and electrical systems," said Don King, director of product marketing at Panamax. "We built our MAX® component and In -Wall lines to provide installers and homeowners highly functional power purification that's both code -compliant and visually attractive. Our MAX® 1500 -UPS is the first uninterruptible power source specifically designed for home theaters, and it's rack -mountable for fast, seamless installation. We recently expanded the market application of our MAX® In -Wall family by offering metal outlet boxes for stringent code requirements and commercial jobs. And the MAX® 5510 -Pro, from our by -installers -for -installers Pro Series, combines some of our best features to work like an on -site technician for greater system performance and reduced service calls. We're looking forward to introducing CES attendees to the benefits of our all -inclusive systemic approach to power conditioning."

Panamax's M1500 -UPS features six AC outlets split into two isolated banks of 2 and 4 outlets, offering "critical load" management for the 2 -outlet bank, which reserves power for the most sensitive equipment during an extended blackout. Installers can also program IR commands to guarantee safe -state shut -down during a sudden power loss. The M1500 -UPS also provides automatic over and under -voltage protection, enhanced filtration of electromagnetic (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI), and RS232 control interface which allows it to be programmed for stand -alone use or integrated with home automation systems.

Panamax has expanded the applicability of the award -winning MAX® In -Wall Family by offering a metal outlet box for the groundbreaking power distribution product line. The boxes are available for the MIW -Power as well as the MIW -PowerKit package, allowing installers to take advantage of the MIW line's benefits on commercial jobs and in areas where requirements are tougher than the National Electrical Code.

The MAX® 5510 -Pro is designed to improve system performance and distribute clean, safe power to home theater equipment in an automated home. Its RS -232 interface works with automation systems to control the power state of connected equipment, and allows for programming power cycles on components like satellite receivers, which may lock up after downloading software updates. Selectable Balanced/Isolated power modes specifically match conditioning for installations, and 12 -volt in & out triggers ensure proper start -up and shut -down sequences of connected equipment, as well as control partner components such as screens, lifts, or drapes.
