This is a great product for applications where AC power protection is needed for several pieces of equipment that need to be controlled and sequenced. The CQ-1515 has a fifteen amp capacity. In addition to sequenced activation and remote control, it provides superior surge protection for sensitive electronic audio, video and data processing equipment.
The CQ-1515 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 Juice Goose quality surge and spike protection with front panel LED monitoring.
Because the CQ-1515 has 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.
The CQ-1515 features replaceable, fast acting, triple stage AC surge protection across line and neutral without ground line contamination. This protection is designed to be durable and is expected to last for many years in a normally occurring power line environment.
Processor LED Function: Blue/Red Flashing = Sequencer and Surge Protection OK. Blinking Red = Sequencer OK, Surge Protection Failure. Solid Blue or Off = Sequencer Failure
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.
