Lowell Remote Power Controls can be combined with a variety of switches or sequential control devices that provide a dry contact closure for an intrinsically safe low voltage method of controlling AC power to equipment at a remote location. The ability to safely control AC power distribution without directly accessing equipment minimizes the potential for accidental or unauthorized activation. Typical applications include commercial, entertainment, government, education and house-of-worship venues where remote power control is often required.
RPCs are typically installed in close proximity of equipment to be controlled. Low-voltage cable is run from the RPC terminal strip to a control switch (such as a switch from Lowell's RPS Series) or other control method. Systems can be configured with multiple RPCs activated by a single switch. Systems can also be configured with multiple switches or trigger voltage sources controlling a single RPC. (See connection diagrams on next page.) RPCs also serve as a key component in Lowell's low voltage sequential control systems (SEQ Series).
