Equi=Tech 5WQ

$ 13,375.00

Award winning Equi=Tech Wall Cabinet Systems are factory preassembled power distribution centers for hard wiring balanced AC power into a facility – a complete balanced power distribution system built into a wall cabinet.  Only minimal installation is required eliminating many expensive hours of labor and hard to find electrical parts.  All the necessary components such as transformer, breakers, GFCIs, surge protectors and line filters are factory assembled using the highest quality materials and components.

Wall systems are designed to blanket an entire facility with clean and phase coherent balanced AC power that remains stable regardless of how they are loaded down.  5, 10, 15 and 20 kVA sizes provide 50, 100, 150 or 200 amps respectively – ideal capacities for most studios and modestly sized theaters or auditoriums.  These systems utilize the same precision toroid isolation transformers as Equi=Tech rack systems but they are much larger with a greater capacity.  Wall systems are the easiest way to provide clean power for a larger facility, doing so with the assurance that the system will remain quiet regardless of what equipment is used or added to it at any time.

Wall system’s components are housed in a sturdy NEMA 12 steel cabinet and feature a rugged industrial-duty AC distribution panelboard with commercial grade circuit breakers, ground fault circuit interrupters and optional EMI/RFI line filters for each circuit per request.  (At the most, one or two are reccommended but none are required.) Two models, the 15WQ and 20WQ have a 2-part cabinet with an additional lower section that houses a massive toroid transfromer.  The cabinets are available in black or light gray with a chrome latching handle and an enamel white interior.  Wall cabinet systems have been tested safe and are built in standard compliance for power distribution equipment.

All Equi=Tech Wall Cabinet Systems are built around revolutionary Equi=Tech Q-type isolation trandformers. Q-type toroid transformers are designed with extremely low impedance. They are wound with double Faraday shields that provide superior isolation (>100dB CMR) from high frequency RF, EMI and nuisance harmonic currents.  “Q” transformers are designed to run acoustically silent even in locations where there is considerably high utility line distortion and very poor power quality.  They are much larger than standard toroids with an equivalent power rating and they run just slightly warm when operated near their rated current limit.  A proprietary winding design eliminates high inrush current issues that are common with most toroid transformers.  They also provide the widest possible broad band noise attenuation and distortion-free playback under the most trying of conditions.  Their performance is exceptional where power hungry amplifiers might otherwise choke during periods of high peak current demand when powered by a conventional AC supply.  “Q” transformers add tightness and startling definition to low frequency music.  In rooms with less than ideal acoustical features that are known to have a negative impact on low frequency sonic quality, they will restore the tightest bass with astonishing never-before-heard clarity and they will do it with ease. They are a must for recording studios that do mastering work and for high defintion audiophile stereo systems.
