This unit enhances the manageability of the Q-OPS by maintaining electrical isolation, as well as allow for maintenance and automatic power transfer.
Using the Bypass Box with the Q-OPS module, the User may manually change the source of input power. The User may:
- bypass the load (traffic signal) to utility power, or
- use an external portable / mobile source to power the load (directly or via the Q-TOPS)
When the Bypass Box is used to divert power away from the Q-TOPS system, the User may remove the Q-TOPS module without disruption of power to the load (traffic signal) regardless of the input power source (AC utility, portable, mobile, or other).
Multiple Outputs for Traffic Controller Functions
The Q-OPS has two AC outputs, plus an additional utility tap. One output is routed via a Bypass Box and the other is located on the back of the Q-TC system. The utility TPT (temporary power tap) is provided via a NEMA 5-15 outlet for additional equipment connection. A terminal block is also available for direct wired connection.
