The DP-7IQ is mounted on a 1.75” X 19” standard, single rack mount panel. The black powder finish assures high indicator visibility, even from a long distance. Termination of the cabling from the local unit is easily made through the rear mounted terminal blocks on the back of the unit. All connections to the unit are clearly marked on the rear of the panel to simplify installation. A de-pluggable terminal block for interface also makes swap-out a snap. Control Leads going to the DS-4 Local Control/Sensor are optoisolated in order to improve noise immunity, reduce ground loop problems, and provide circuit protection. This also allows the DP-7IQ to be mounted up to 1200 feet away from the Local (DS-4) Control/Sensor. Dry contact I/O for customer monitor and control equipment is also provided for monitoring the status of the deicing system along with allowing full remote Manual On activation, no matter what position the DP-7IQ control Switch is in. A panel indicator will show a remote M&C Manual On command.
