The maxwell, abbreviated as Mx, is the compound derived centimetre–gram–second (CGS) unit of magnetic flux. The unit used to be called a line. The unit name honours James Clerk Maxwell, who presented the unified theory of electromagnetism, and was established by the International Electrotechnical Commission in 1930.
