HAWTHORNE, N.Y. — Jan. 21, 2008 —
BTX Technologies, Inc. today introduces a new solderless control cable kit for projectors and cameras in female DB9 (YD-RS232MX9F) and male DB9 (YD-RS232MX9M) configurations. The new kit saves installers time and money in the field by eliminating the need to solder on a D-Sub connector.
As projector and camera manufacturers utilize different pin assignments for control, there is no single cable available to installers to cover the requirements for all of their projects. As a result, they have to construct the needed cable in the field by soldering on a 9-pin D-Sub connector. To solve this problem, and to save installers time and money, BTX introduces its new projector/camera solderless control cable kit in female and male DB9 configurations.
The kit consists of a 3-foot cable with a male 8-pin, mini-din on one end and a blunt cut on the other; the BTX patent-pending, MaxBlox CD-MX9F (DB9 female to terminal block) or CD-MX9M (DB9 male to terminal block); the CD-MX915H MaxBlox hood; and a specification sheet showing the conductor color code to each pin.
“This new projector/camera control kit continues the BTX tradition of providing installers with cost- and time-saving solutions that simplify life in the field,” said Greg Schwartz, president of BTX. “Without the DB9 attached to the assembly, installers are able to snake the 3-foot control cable through the projector/camera mount or conduit, cut to the proper length, and then simply attach the solderless DB9 with a screwdriver. The snap-on hood provides proper strain relief and a clean, finished look.”
The new solderless control cable kits are available immediately.
