BTX Introduces MaxBlox CA -MX35, Industry -First 3.5 -mm, Solderless Stereo Mini Jack

BTX Technologies, Inc., is introducing an addition to the MaxBlox family of connectors, the CA-MX35.

HAWTHORNE, N.Y. - Sept. 18, 2007 - BTX Technologies, Inc., is introducing an addition to the MaxBlox family of connectors, the CA -MX35. Requiring a standard, half -inch D -style punch, the new stereo audio connector eliminates the need for soldering and fits into panels up to one -quarter inch thick.


Optimized for use in computer audio, A/V, home theater, broadcast, and data system applications, the CA -MX35 is a 3.5 -mm stereo mini female -to -terminal block connector with nut/washer -to -rear mount in a plate or panel. Clearly labeled terminal blocks on the back of the new connector take the place of solder tabs, allowing installers to terminate it with a screwdriver. The connector fits in a standard half -inch D -style punch, eliminating the need for custom -made plates or panels to house it.

"BTX is always looking to create solutions that make the life of the installer a little easier," said Mark Chernoff, director of marketing for BTX. "Currently, solder -style stereo mini connectors are what installers have to work with. And because a 3.5 -mm connector is so small, this soldering has always been a very tedious task. By eliminating the need for soldering, the CA -MX35 can be attached and detached more quickly, which saves time and money. Because the connector fits in a half -inch D -style punch, it provides even more savings."

The CA -MX35 will be available to installers Fall, 2007.
