Published test results prove the effectiveness of the power protection circuitry contained in the CQ 1520-RX.
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 tested and proven to deliver protection comparable to an isolation transformer.
The CQ 1520-RX is a single space rack mount sequencer featuring seven AC power outputs on the rear of the chassis with a combined rating of twenty amps. One output is unswitched. The remaining 6 outputs are grouped into three Power Pods of two outputs each. Each Power Pod is an individual sequence event. 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.
All CQ Series products feature multiple pairs of power outputs, Power Pods(TM), which are turned on every 2 seconds. All CQ models have the ability to transmit a sequence command to another CQ unit or to receive a remote sequence command from another CQ unit or from an RC5 Remote Control/Monitor accessory or any contact closure. In this way, any CQ Series product can be a master or slave unit.
A power sequencing system can be built from several CQ Series products which can be selected depending on the specific requirements of a particular installation: number and location of circuits, current (amps) requirement of circuit, number of control locations, number of sequence events. Select only the specific CQ Series products to meet a specific requirement. The time delay between sequence events is 2 seconds, controlled by the CQ Series software. The order in which powered equipment is turned on depends on which Pod that equipment is plugged into an
