This is a great product for "front of house" applications or anywhere several pieces of low current equipment 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 20 amp capacity of this unit requires it to be assembled with a 12 guage 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.


All CQ products can be easily controlled by way of either 8 wire, RJ-45 or 6 wire RJ-12 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. CQ-1520 (TM)


The CQ-1520 features a two 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. A Manual Override switch allows the CQ-1520 to be manually operated, overriding the control circuit in the unlikely event of a fault or failure. Lights on the front of the chassis allow monitoring of the unit operation. The PROCESSOR light will blink to indicate the control processor on the unit is functioning. The POD lights are illuminated as a result of contact closure by the CQ relays, indicating that actual relay closure has occurred.
