Three Sequence 20 AMP Power Distribution System with Remote Control Capability
This is a great product for "front of house" applications or anywhere AC power protection is needed for several pieces of low current equipment that 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 CQ-1520 provides AC line protection across hot, neutral and ground with a multi-stage line filter and a three way surge protection matrix.
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.
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.
