RX Series Surge Protection in a Fifteen Amp, Three Step Sequencer
The Juice Goose CQ 1515-RX combines reliable AC power sequencing with the proven performance of the Juice Goose RX Series surge protection and filtration.
Each CQ Series product contains the circuitry needed for sequenced activation and plug-and-play coordination with other CQ Series models or RC Series accessories. All power up and power down sequences are performed automatically. Commands are passed from one CQ Series unit to the next.
The CQ 1515-RX is a single space rack mount device featuring 7 AC power outputs on the rear of the chassis with a combined rating of 15 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 premium, RX Series surge protection and line noise filtration. Because the CQ 1515-RX is a self contained sequencing circuit, it can be the master or slave in a power sequencing system. Eight wire RJ-45 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 sequencing functions. Individual LEDs light when power is applied to its power pod.
Proven Power Protection
Published test results prove the effectiveness of the power protection circuitry contained in the CQ 1515-RX and other RX Series based products.
This RX power protection technology is particularly valuable because it works against common mode as well as normal mode events. While it protects against dramatic surge events of up to 6,000 volts at 3,000 amps on hot and neutral (normal mode), it also limits ground line (common mode) surges to one-half (0.50) volt to prevent operating faults of digital processing equipment.
Power protection circuitry in the CQ 1515-RX includes a differential transformer, lots of filtering capacitance and control circuitry providing protection from dangerous surges, high frequency interference, building wiring faults and over voltage. RX technology is proven to deliver protection comparable to an isolation transformer.
Please Note: Interconnecting CQ Series devices requires eight wire, RJ-45 cable. While this is the same component used to assemble CAT5 and CAT6 cables, orientation of the connectors on the CQ Series cable is slightly different than for the CAT data networking cable. Therefore, standard CAT5 or CAT6 cables will not work with CQ Series devices.
Please read before connecting any RJ45 cables!
A special crimping procedure is required for connecting RJ45 cables between devices. After crimping a RJ45 connector on one end of the eight wire cable, attach a connector on the other end "upside down" from the first so that when the connectors are placed side by side the wire orientation will appear opposite of each other (i.e 12345678 - 87654321) See illustration above. Check the cable with a continuity tester prior to installation. There is no known distance limit for the connection of CQ units by means of this cable system.
