Product Description

The ASD-120 Power Sequencer / Distribution provides a compact, economical solution for power distribution in touring PA systems, theatre productions, mobile recording studios, and other scenarios requiring AC power distribution, offering cost-efficiencies in terms of convenience and expensive, bulky parallel feeds. It boasts a range of additional features.

The ASD-120 allows you to sequentially energize and de-energize its six circuits, with an adjustable delay interval controlled by an internal trimpot.

Power sequencing is essential when equipment must be powered as groups rather than at the same time. In audio systems, sequencing is often necessary for low-level amplifiers and processors to prevent "pops" from reaching speakers. Additionally, sequencing can prevent circuit breakers from tripping due to the inrush of current from large inductive loads, such as motors, power supplies, and amps.

The ASD-120's front panel provides a three-position switch for each circuit that allows each circuit to be part of the power up/down sequence, or to remain on or off apart from the sequence. An LED that indicates when either the power-up or power-down sequence is in progress. The sequence can be initiated with either momentary or maintained switches, locally or remotely. A duplex outlet is provided for each delay step. A locking switch with a removable key is provided for maximum security.

Since the sequence control signals are also available on the rear panel, one or more ASD-120's may be installed in remote locations and operated via low-voltage control wiring. The sequence control signals can also drive PowerPorts, MiniPorts, PS-PRO and PS-8-R Power Sequencers, or any other circuits that need to know when their particular time delay has elapsed. Using one or more ASD-120's can provide the capability of controlling power and power sequencing for an entire system.

The ASD-120 can handle up to 120 amps of incoming power, distributing it to six 20 amp, 120V circuits. Each circuit has a front panel status indicator that lights up when it is turned on, and a 20 amp duplex outlet on the rear panel.

The ASD-120's design incorporates four oversized busses, allowing wiring for 120V or 240V single phase, or 208V three phase power. A strain relief clamp is provided that can accommodate a cable or wire bundle up to 1.5 inches in diameter. Cable termination is a simple process of breaking out and stripping the individual conductors and connecting them with set screws, and then tightening the strain relief clamp. Complete instructions accompanying the unit guide the user through the process of selecting and terminating the supply cable.
