Overview: The CS12V is a current sensing 12-volt (DC) trigger.
Plug one of your system components into the 3-prong AC outlet and the CS12V senses
the current draw when that component is turned on, and energizes the 12-volt output
to turn on a second component.
Note: According to Niles Audio, the power
consumption on the component plugged into this unit must be
at least 30 watts to trigger the 12 volt output.
Delay: You can delay the 12-volt output when the connected
component is turned on. The delay time options are zero seconds, five seconds,
and 10 seconds.
Idle Current: Most components draw some nominal current when
they're off. With the connected component turned off, set the CS12V to account for
- Input: 120 volts AC, 60 Hz
- AC Output: 120 volts, 60 Hz; 5
amps max, 600 watts max
- Trigger Output: 12 volts DC,
- Output Plug: 3.5mm mono, tip
