Lowell Offers 120V Remote Power Control Plus Surge and Over/Under Voltage Protection
Jun 21, 2007 8:00 AM
Lowell expands its selection of AC power panels with remote power control to include new 20A model ACSPR-RPC1-2009. The versatile 120V device features remote control with surge suppression and auto-reset over/under voltage protection to meet today’s demanding applications. Previously introduced 15A model ACSPR-RPC1-1509 is also available.
The surge suppressor provides GSA Grade A- Mode 1-Class 1 endurance along with UL1449-2 and ANSI C62.41 surge suppression compliance. Lowell’s over/under Voltage Tolerance Envelope (VTE) circuitry with auto-reset feature is designed to turn all receptacles off when line voltage exceeds 140V or drops below 100V for circumstances such as extended power line surges or brownouts that are introduced to the system. Following a voltage tolerance shutdown event, the unit will automatically restore power to the receptacles when the unit detects acceptable line voltage. If the shutdown event was a power outage, the switched receptacles will remain off until reactivated.
The unit’s remote power control (RPC) circuitry allows for on/off switching by external DSP timed events. Termination blocks on the rear are provided for remote triggering and on/off functions. Three unswitched outlets (one front, two rear) are available, along with six switched in the rear. An integral override is included for life safety system applications where fire code mandates an alarm interface.
The unit’s power rating is 120V AC, 60Hz/20A 2400W. It defeats surges up to 72,000A using Lowell’s Triple Clamping Redundancy (TCR) technology and provides excellent EMI/RFI filtering. The chassis measures 19”x1 3/4” and features multicolor LEDs for visual identification of system status. Backed by a 10-year warranty, the unit is available with rocker or key switch activation; Model ACSPR-RPC1-2009 or ACSPR-RPC1-2009K respectively. Also offered is 15A version Model ACSPR-RPC1-1509 or ACSPR-RPC1-1509K along with a variety of remote switch accessories.
