Sensor IQ Intelligent Breaker System

Sensor IQ Intelligent Breaker System

Power control for the next generation

The Sensor® IQ Intelligent Breaker System is a top-of-the-line, go-to power-control solution for modern entertainment-lighting systems that contain any combination of LEDs and moving lights. Housed in a compact footprint, Sensor IQ offers total system power control and can combine lighting, video projection and audio systems with its built-in sequencer and available isolated ground bar. With an available 0-10V control card or paired with Echo Phase-Adaptive Dimmer, Sensor IQ can dim a wide range of low-voltage loads. IQ panels can also be paired with a Source Four® Dimmer to dim theatrical tungsten fixtures.

Meeting the highest standards

Sensor IQ 120V and 277V are UL and cUL listed to UL67, UL508 and UL924 standards. With the addition of a UPS Control Backup Wiring Kit, the Sensor IQ also supports load shedding when used in emergency lighting applications. The UPS kit allows the control processor to be powered via an external UPS (provided by others) to ensure that loads are shed prior to energization by an emergency source.

Truly intelligent control.

Sensor IQ makes troubleshooting stress-free with global monitoring for your entire lighting system over Ethernet. View circuit-by-circuit live reporting from your web browser for each attached load's trip level, state, and control source. Advanced patching and control prioritization between sACN, DMX, and sequences also provide control of your system for users who need it, while limiting access for those who don't.

A truly intelligent breaker.

Sensor IQ delivers switching with data reporting for one-, two-, and three-pole circuits. Available in 15- to 30-amp versions, Sensor IQ’s built-in, hydraulic-magnetic breakers are tuned for high inrush trip curves, matching their Sensor family heritage, and are designed not to trip under full load. Its convenient manual on/off lever lets you reset the circuit without requiring active power to the cabinet.

A complete system solution.

Sensor IQ can support direct connection for up to six Unison Echo® power controllers and six stations. Room-segmented control is made easy with Sensor IQ's one-button sequencing capability and an Inspire Button Station. Customize your system by adding accessories like the ISO ground bar, a great solution for venues that want to avoid that pesky ground-loop audio hum. Branch circuit fuse boxes, which an electrical engineer may require for selective coordination of loads, are also available in 6-, 12-, and 24-fuse models.

Less wiring, less hassle.

The Sensor IQ 120V breaker panel can be mounted nearly anywhere. It has the smallest footprint available and eliminates the need for additional wiring, making installation and setup easy. Sensor IQ is available in 12-, 24-, and 48-circuit models that can be easily surface-mounted on any standard wall, or flush-mounted in a standard 16-inch stud wall (12- and 24-circuit systems only).

Sensor IQ is also available in 277V panels that provide one-pole 15-, 20-, and 30-amp hydraulic-magnetic breakers, ideal for large, commercial facilities – such as arenas, stadiums, and convention centers – that need power-control support for area lighting in hallways, lobbies, offices, ballrooms, and more. It is available in 12-, 24-, and 48-circuit models up to 65,000 amps series SCCR (Short-Circuit Current Rating). Sensor IQ 277V also accepts 220V-240V feeds for international-system support.
