The CQ 1520-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 1520-RX 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 premium, RX Series surge protection and line noise filtration.
Because the CQ 1520-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.
Published test results prove the effectiveness of the power protection circuitry contained in the CQ 1520-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 1520-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. Click here to see RX Series test results.
For CQ Series products, standard delay time between sequence up and sequence down events is 2 seconds. That can be adjusted in the CQ 1515 by changing position of two DIP switches located on the main control circuit board. Timing options are 2 seconds (standard), 10 seconds, 20 seconds and 30 seconds. Detailed instructions about making those changes are included in the CQ Series Manual.
The 20 amp capacity of this unit requires it to be assembled with a 20 amp circuit breaker, 12 gauge power cable and a NEMA 5/20P plug at the end of the power cord. This plug can be inserted into any AC receptacle with a 20 amp rating.
