C600 and C610 Series
These rack-mounting panels are engineered specifically to provide a versatile, safe solution to the problem of powering the diverse combinations of equipment commonly mounted in mobile racks, for temporary installations in live entertainment,location recording and outside broadcast work.
Each panel, a substantial steel enclosure, is furnished with a CeeForm appliance inlet for the connection of the supply, and directly wired ?loop out? socket outlet, intended to supply further panels mounted in other enclosures. This means that several mobile racks may be powered from a single source, given adequate current carrying capacity of the supply and connecting cables.
Alternatively, power may be fed off to suitable distribution strips. An unusual detail of the16 amp versions is the recess above the appliance inlet. This allows the sprung cap of the mating cable socket to fit into the rack, avoiding interference with co-racked equipment and, more unusually, providing the latching facility necessary to avoid the disengagement of the connector by untoward events such as inadvertent tripping over leads during rigging. The 32 Amp versions, featuring angled inlets, have the latch on the inlet body and are manufactured with adjustable rack-mount ears, so that the panel may be mounted recessed into the rack to avoid collision with flight case or similar lids.
All models have a neon indicator, wired to show the presence of supply input. BS1363, 13A mains outlets are reliable MK types, and are wired directly in parallel with the supply input (C660 excepted). They are arranged to avoid power cords interfering with adjacent hardware, and support the use of ?plug-top? power supplies. IEC320, 6 amp outlets are connected in groups of four, each with a neon indicator, via a front-panel fuse, to the supply.
This is a special purpose, 32 amp model, for use with higher power equipment such as amplifier or smaller dimmer racks. Two 16 amp IEC309 outlets, for the high powered equipment and a group of three 13A outlets for processing or control devices, on the rear, are fed by three separate 16A circuit breakers, selected to avoid false tripping on power-up transients.
