The Juice Goose CQ-PD1-4, along with the other products in the CQ Series, provides a versatile and powerful means of remotely activating AC power in a sequenced array for application to both sensitive and high amperage equipment. CQ Series products need no additional controllers. Each contains the circuitry to be activated by a simple contact closure and to perform in coordination with other CQ devices. All power down sequences are exact reversals of the power up sequences.
The CQ-PD1-4 is an 80 amp hardwire model featuring four sequence events, each with an individual 20 amp circuit. It can be a stand-alone, remote control module or can be included with a more extensive power sequencing system. In a typical CQ system the CQ-PD1-4 is used to control power within an amplifier rack. The multiple circuit/multiple sequence feature allows the CQ-PD1-4 to power up several amplifiers, following activation of any equalizers that may be housed in the same rack. In this configuration the CQ-PD1-4 is connected by way of six wire modular phone cable to another CQ device which will power the “frontof-house“ equipment. No time delay settings or additional equipment are required. All CQ units will automatically turn on and off in the proper sequence.
The CQ-PD1-4 features four sequenced duplex receptacles. Each duplex has its own preset turn on and off timing. It turns off in the opposite sequence from turn on. Because the CQPD1-4 activates its outlets in four stages it is useful as a stand-alone sequencer. Signal source and processing equipment can be powered by the first sequence stages while amplifiers are powered by the last ones. The CQ-PD1-4 can be triggered by the switch on the front of the unit, by a remote contact closure or by a Juice Goose RC-5 key switch.
All CQ products can be easily controlled by way of standard 6 wire RJ-12 modular phone cable. Each CQ has a Sequence Signal Input and Output connector on the chassis. This communication link allows any CQ device to be installed at any stage in a power sequencing system. There is no limit to the number of CQ devices that can be connected and no known distance limit between them. Because the sequence process is controlled with a latching contact closure the system can be activated with a custom mounted single pole switch, a relay, the control switch on the CQ device itself or a Juice Goose RC-5 key switch control accessory. It can also be activated with controllers from Crestron, AMX and other manufacturers.
The CQ-PD1-4 features a three position switch on the front of the chassis. This switch is active only if there is no control cable on the Sequence Signal Input connector. When active, this switch allows the unit to sequence up or sequence down and to control the sequencing of any unit connected to the Sequence Signal Output connector. This switch can also override the control circuit in the unlikely event of a fault or failure.
