For Commercial, institutional and residential projects, including schools, universities, municipal buildings, offices, gymnasiums, homes, condos, and more.
RQ Series Panels act as an interface between AFI DC Actuators and Direct Digital Control (DDC) systems such as Building Automation or Management Systems (BAS or BMS), Home Automation Systems or Heating/Ventilation/Air Conditioning Systems (HVAC).
Almost any operable opening can be automated: awning (top-hinged), hopper (bottom-hinged), casement (side-hinged), hung or sliding windows; parallel windows (hinged on 4 sides); skylights, curtain wall and other vents.
Natural Ventilation systems, such as operable windows and skylights, save energy and lower operating costs by reducing air conditioning and heating use.
LEED credits for green building projects can be earned under Indoor Environmental Quality for Natural Ventilation, Daylighting and Views.
Smoke Evacuation systems reduce smoke, heat and casualties during a fire; AFI actuators are SHE certified.
Features & Benefits
Steel box enclosure is UL certified, self-contained and ready to install. Has removable screw-cover and knockouts on all 4 sides. Dimensions 18 in x 18 in x 8 in.
Contains four RQ control units, that are programmable and queryable, with feedback and bi-directional communication. Allow independent control (open/close switching) of low voltage actuators connected to them. Programmable features include custom control of chain opening length, and signal feedback to confirm open or closed window position.
Contains one power supply, 20A, 480W, high efficiency with 150% peak load capability and protection for short circuit, overload, over voltage and over temperature.
UL-Registered Firm for United States and Canada.
Decrease installation costs by using control panels.
Accessories sold separately as needed per project include remote controls, bridge translators, local switch interfaces, and bus splitters.
Use with Momentary Contact SPDT Switch, AFI part #SW5657-2W (or other dry contact switch).
The RQ series panels are fully compatible with all AFI 24VDC actuators. Refer to chart below on actuator individual amp ratings.
Accessories added to AFI Actuator & Control systems as needed include:remote controls, bridge translators, local switch interfaces, and bus splitters.
Optional AFI Field Power Switch: For use with AFI DC Actuators, for testing, installation and maintenance, such as to extend the chain to attach to a window at installation. For connecting one to 3 actuators (up to 1.0 amps total of actuators at startup).
AFI UL Control Panels have 2-year AFI warranty against manufacturing defects.
