Lowell Manufacturing Company, a U.S. manufacturer of professional AV products, introduces pass-through RJ45 connections to its line of Remote Power Controls (RPC-P Series), Relays (RY-P Series) and Sequencers (SEQ-P Series). This means that instead of connecting each device directly to the sequencer, the RPCs and relays can connect to each other, in any order, with only the first device connected to the sequencer. It's also easier to scale a system up or down, as equipment is added or removed, using Cat5/6 cable.
New sequencer Model #SEQ-P4 is engineered to control up to 20 remote power controls or relays per step (80 total), so the pass-through devices can save quite a bit of time for medium to large installations. The RPCs and relays also have a step selection switch onboard each unit, which allows the startup position for any device to be quickly changed at the flip of a switch—without rewiring.
The pass-through remote power controls, relays and sequencers are made in the U.S.A. with certified U.S. steel and global components. They're available from Lowell Manufacturing Co. dealers and distributors.
