Remote Power Switch
Three Sequenced 20 AMP Power Distribution System with Remote Control Capability Made in America.
This is a great product for “front of house” applications or anywhere several pieces of low current equipment need to be controlled and sequenced.
The CQ-1520 is a single space rack mount device featuring 7 AC power outputs on the rear of the chassis with a combined rating of 20 amps . One output is unswitched. The remaining 6 outputs are grouped into 3 Power Pods of two outputs each. Each Power Pod is an individual sequence event. All outputs have Juice Goose quality surge and spike protection and line noise filtration.
Because the CQ-1520 has a self contained sequencing circuit, it can be the master or slave in a power sequencing system. Either eight wire RJ-45 or six wire RJ-12 cable can be connected to this unit’s Signal Input and/or Signal Output connectors to link it’s operations with other CQ or control devices.
This product features LEDs on the front of the chassis for real time monitoring of the processor and sequencing functions. A green flashing LED indicates the continuing operation of the processor that controls and drives the sequencer. Individual red LEDs are tied to the output of each of the relays. Each LED lights when its relay latches. The LED can only be on when the relay is latched.
The 20 amp capacity of this unit requires it to be assembled with a 12 gauge power cable and a NEMA 5/20P plug at the end of the power cord. This cable can be inserted into any AC receptacle with a comparable rating and the configuration of the duplex receptacle on the right, below.
- Two position switch on the front of the chassis.
- Switch is active only if there is no control cable on the Sequence Signal Input connector.
- A Manual Override switch allows the CQ-1520 to be manually operated, overriding the control circuit in the unlikely event of a fault or failure.
