ETA-ECS6RM
Electrical Control Sequencer
INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the ETA Systems ETA-ECS6RM Intelligent AC Power Sequencer. The ETA-ECS6RM (Electrical Controller
Sequencer with Six Timing Sections with Remote Monitoring) modular system has been designed to meet most installation
requirements for AC power distribution, equipment power conditioning and surge suppression protection. The compact 1RU unit
features six sequential timing sections that can be activated via the unit, or remotely. Up to three ETA-ECS6RM units can be daisy
chained together with independent trigger timing settings giving you a total of 18 sequence triggered outlets. The ETA-ECS6RM unit
is the activation controller/monitor portion of the system and requires a 120V AC Mains ECM (Electrical Controlled Module) module for
each triggered output. A variety of remote ECM AC modules are available to meet different installation requirements.
The ETA-ECS6RM can also monitor up to six independent 20A AC main lines, both voltage and current readings can be viewed via the
laboratory grade meters on the front panel. The ETA-ECS6RM has built in intelligence that monitors the AC lines and will inform you of
potentially damaging voltages. If the AC Mains voltage is between 101VAC and 107VAC or 128VAC and 132VAC the display will flash
an error code indicating a potential fault has occurred and sensitive equipment should be checked. If an extreme voltage swing occurs
above 128VAC or below 101VAC, the Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) protection circuit will automatically turn all remote ECM
modules Off until the system is manually reset. The EVS feature can be defeated if required.
The ETA-ECS6RM also features 6 sequenced independent relay contacts. The activation of the contacts work in parallel of the
corresponding ECM triggered outputs. Activation can be done via the Front panel momentary switch, RMT V input (5-24VDC), External
switch or via the optional Remote ECS-KSW6 key switch. The ECS-KSW6 can be placed up to 1000 ft away from the ETA-ECS6RM and
will also indicate if an ECM is activated or if a fault condition has occurred to one or all six channels.
To light your rack, the ETA-ECS6RM has incorporated both front and rear XLR style sockets for the 16" gooseneck LED lamp. One Atlas
Power AP-GNL18 lamp is included and a second lamp can be purchased separately from ETA Systems. LED lamps are far superior in
longevity along with heat reduction when compared to traditional incandescent lamps and the XLR base mounts are also superior to
the commonly used BNC type base.
The ECM modules have been designed to be flexible to meet a variety of AC power management requirements. The mating of the
ETA-ECS6RM to the ECM modules can be accomplished using any 5 conductor cable and can be placed up to 1000 ft away from each
other. Each ECM module has an input DC voltage trigger of 5VDC, plus three low voltage data port connections for AC Mains
monitoring. If AC outlets are required to be placed within the same rack as the ETA-ECS6RM, the ECM-RACEWY6 raceway can house
up to six ETA-ECM20 or ETA-ECM20M modules and six independent 20A AC 120V lines. For remote locations where single outlet turn
On/Off and monitoring are required the ETA-15SH (15A) and the ETA-20SH (20A) can be a perfect fit. All ECM modules offer different
and unique packaging designs and mounting options to assure they meet job requirements.
Features of the ECM modules vary allowing the customer to choose what is best for their installation, but all ECM modules feature AC
spike suppression. AC Spikes, or Transients, are commonly caused by utility power plant grid switchovers. The amount of energy that
can be injected into the power system can be immense with voltages reaching 6kV or amperage peaks of 3000A. These spikes are
very fast and usually only last for a very short period of time. To protect against this potential problem incoming AC Mains have special
suppression circuitry to eliminate the unwanted energy. This circuitry is very fast and can suppress unwanted energy within a
nanosecond, while sustaining the suppression for up to 2 milliseconds, thus ensuring virtually trouble free protection. High and Low
AC Main line voltages are another major contributor to equipment failures. The ECM modules support EVS circuitry which enables the
module to be shut Off during Low and High AC Line conditions.
The ETA-ECM20M, ETA-15SH and ETA-20SH, also feature noise filtering for unwanted Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) that is
commonly introduced into the AC lines by nearby radio transmitters or wireless products. EMI filters are incorporated to reduce noise
from Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) generated by items such as electric motors and switching power supplies. The benefit of
these filters can be seen on video products or audibly by reducing static pops and external signal interference.
High line can also be known as surges. Surges usually are a slower steady state rise in voltages ranging from 128VAC and up. They can
be caused from fluctuations in the utility company's power lines or industrial equipment turning On and Off and on the same power leg
of the building's incoming AC.
Low line is also known as brownouts. This happens when the AC Mains drops below 107VAC. Most of the time it is caused by the
utility company not being able to supply enough power during heavy utility consumption time periods, such as heat waves. Another
factor would be from voltage drops in AC lines due to long transmissions. The ETA-ECS6RM will inform you if any of these conditions
occur. Extreme variances in Unstable AC Mains voltage are one of the main reasons for equipment failure.
The ETA-ECS6RM offers Intelligent Sequenced Power Management control, making it the most flexible, effective power management
protection system on the market today.

allow the turning of equipment On and Off in a particular order, to eliminate an in rush of current and audible pops that often occur
with non-sequenced power strips. It also can be used solely for protection against voltage surges. If fuzzy video or frequent static pops
occur, the AC power conditioning will eliminate or reduce those inconveniences. The following are just a few examples of applications
in which the ETA-ECS6RM can be used:
• Restaurants
• Houses of Worship
• Schools
• Home Theaters
• Office Buildings
• Sports Bars
• Industrial Facilities

1.System Activation Switch – To activate or deactivate the system sequence, press the momentary switch once. There must be at
least one ECM (Electrical Control Module) connected for a sequence to occur. If there are no Channel Status LEDs illuminated or
voltage reading, no sequence will occur. The unit will only sequence through the number of ECM modules connected. Note: If
there are ECM modules connected and the Channel Status LED are illuminated but the Activation Switch has no effect, the unit
may be in External Trigger Mode. Refer to Channel Status LEDs and Relay Contacts sections.
2.Unit Activation Mode LEDs
•
ystem ON LED – When the ETA-ECS6RM is activated the System ON LED
S
will illuminate.
•
Exterior Trigger Mode – If an External Trigger Voltage or Switch is applied to
activate the ETA-ECS6RM the Exterior Trigger Mode LED will be illuminated.
Note: When LED is ON the System Activation switch is defeated.
•
lave Mode – When the Slave Mode LED is Illuminated it indicates that there
S
are more than one ETA-ECS6RM connected to the trigger sequencing. Up
to three ETA-ECS6RM units can be connected in series. Refer to Rear Panel
System Control for more details.
3.Channel Activation Status LEDs – There are six Bi-Color LEDs that represent
Channels 1 thru 6 of the ETA-ECS6RM. These LEDs indicate when there is AC
voltage present or if there is an error within the AC Mains System.
•
ed “Standby” – If a Channel on an ETA-ECM20, ETA-ECM20M, ETA-15SH,
R
or ETA-20SH module is connected to the ETA-ECS6RM a Red LED will
illuminate indicating that Channel is active and in Standby mode. If there
are Channels of the ETA-ECS6RM with no ECM modules connected, NO
LED for that Channel will illuminate indicating NO CONNECTION (nC) has
been established. Note: If the Channel is selected for monitoring has no
CONNECTION the LCD display will read “nC”.
•
reen “ON” – When the ETA-ECS6RM has been activated and sequencing is completed, the LED for channels that have an
G
ECM module connected will turn from Red “Standby” to Green to indicate the ECM module is activated and operational.
•
ed “Flashing” – If a fault in voltage occurs the ECM-6RM will shut the ECM module off and will report back to the
R
ETA-ECS6RM causing the Channel Activation LED to flash Red, indicating an error has occurred.
Note: The LED will continue to flash until the voltage has stabilized at the ECM module and ETA-ECS6RM is reset. To reset the
ETA-ECS6RM, restart the sequencing.
Note: It is also possible to have Channels flashing Red while others are operational with a steady Green LED. This is because
an ETA-15SH or ETA-20SH can be placed on a different AC leg up to 1000' away. Not all ECM modules may see the same error
in AC Mains voltage thus allowing some ECM modules to remain operational.

tolerance and will indicate the Voltage present at an ECM module. For the
Current reading to function an ETA-ECM20M, ETA-15SH or an ETA-20SH module
must be connected. Also a minimum of 500mA of current draw must be at the
ECM module for the ETA-ECS6RM to read. Less than that the display will read
”nA”. When using the ETA-ECM20 module the Current display will read "nA"
because it has no current sensing circuitry.
Note: When first applying power to the ETA-ECS6RM and no ECM modules are connected the Voltage display will display "nC"
because it has no external voltage to read.

need to set the timing sequence of each unit. There are four dip switches that determine the position of the unit and the delay
between sequencing. Follow the steps for setup.
Master or Slave Unit – D
etermine if you are daisy chaining two or three units
together. Choose the position of the sequence in perspective to the equipment
you are activating. The first unit will be known as the Master Unit, all others are
Slave Units. A & B switches determine the position of the unit and sequence
timing. Follow the chart to the right and on the back of the ETA-ECS6RM for the
settings. When a unit is selected as a Slave Unit the Front Panel Slave Mode
LED will illuminate. Also follow the System Control Port section below for unit
daisy chain connection. Note: After changing a setting the unit power must be
reset for the changed settings to take effect.
Delay Time Switches – T
he ETA-ECS6RM has three timing settings between
each sequence, 1 Second, 3 Seconds and 6 Seconds. Follow the chart for the
settings for Switches C & D. When daisy chaining multiple units together each unit’s settings only relate to that individual unit.
For example, you can set Unit One for 3 Seconds, Unit Two for 1 Second and Unit Three for 6 Seconds or all can have the
same setting. Note: After changing a setting the unit power must be reset for the changed settings to take effect.
Auto EVS Bypass Switch – T
he Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) has two settings to meet your install requirements. The
selection of the settings are via switches E or F. The selection affects all six channels. When “Enabled” the EVS circuit will
trigger an ECM shutdown when an extreme voltage condition occurs and will auto reset when the voltage has stabilized. When
“Disabled” the EVS circuitry will trigger a shutdown during and extreme voltage condition and will not turn back on unless the
unit is sequenced. See EVS feature definition for details. Note: After changing a setting the unit power must be reset for the
changed setting to take effect.
5Light Socket – T

ECM DATA WIRE AND DISTANCE
There are four different types of ECM Modules that require the same interface connectivity to the ETA-ECS6RM. All ECM Modules can
be interfaced with the ETA-ECS6RM. For connection between the ETA-ECS6RM and an ECM module, use a 5 conductor cable that is
a minimum of 22-gauge wire. We suggest using CAT5 cable due to the common availability and low cost. Pay special attention to the
port connections and DO NOT MISWIRE or damage may occur. The distance between the ETA-ECS6RM and the ECM Module can be
up to 1000ft.
ECM MODULE ACTIVATION WITHOUT USING ETA-ECS6RM OR AN ECS-3 CONTROLLER
Any of the ETA-ECM20, ETA-ECM20M, ETA-15SH or the ETA-20SH Modules can be triggered to activate without using an ECS type
Controller. Any DCV supply will activate the ECM by applying DCV 5-24VDC to the “+” and “GND” terminals. An external switch will
also activate an ECM by applying a contact to short terminals “+” and “D” together. Note: the EVS and Voltage monitoring will be
disabled using either of these methods.

and 107VAC or 128VAC and 132VAC the display will flash an error code indicating a potential fault has occurred and you should
check sensitive equipment. If an extreme voltage swing occurs above 128VAC or below 101VAC, the Extreme Voltage Shutdown
(EVS) protection circuit will automatically turn all remote ECM modules off until the system is manually reset. The EVS feature can
be defeated if required via the ETA-ECS6RM EVS bypass switch.
Over Current Protection – I n the case of excessive current draw at the ECM module, an internal Slow Blow fuse will open
protecting the devices plugged into the ECM module. Note: This fuse must be changed by a qualified service technician.

AP-GNL18 – LED Gooseneck LAMP
The Atlas Power AP-GNL18 is an optional LED Gooseneck Lamp and works with any of the ETA Systems 12VDC XLR base mount
connectors. The length of the gooseneck is 16".
ETA-15SH - Standalone 15A Power Conditioner and AC Spike Suppressor
This Electrical Control Module (ECM) is a 15A Power Conditioner and AC Spike Suppressor designed to be a standalone Single
Housing (SH) unit that can be placed up to 1000 ft away from the ETA-ECS6RM. To make full use of the ETA-15SH features, the
ECM must be connected to the ETA-ECS6RM controller to activate features such as AC Mains voltage monitoring, load current
monitoring, and Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS).
ETA-20SH - Standalone 20A Power Conditioner and AC Spike Suppressor
This Electrical Control Module (ECM) is a 20A Power Conditioner and AC Spike Suppressor designed to be a standalone Single
Housing (SH) unit that can be placed up to 1000 ft away from the ETA-ECS6RM. The ETA-20SH has several advanced features
incorporated, refer to the individual data sheet for full instructions and specifications on the module. Many of the ETA-20SH
features and connections are the same as the ETA-15SH.
ETA-20SH Mounting Tabs – There are two sets of mounting tab rails. Theses rails are designed to be breakaway if they are not needed. Simply bend the tab back and forth until the tab breaks away.

ECM-RACEWY6 ECM Housing
The ETA-ECM20 and ETA-ECM20M require an electrical housing. The ECM-RACEWY6 holds up to 6 ECM modules. There are
standard ¾" and 1" electrical knockouts on the bottom of the raceway to support standard electrical mounting hardware. Since the
Raceway can house 6 ECM modules there can be 6 separate 20A AC legs coming into the Raceway for a total of 120A of power
distribution or it could be as simple as one 20A leg. Note: All electrical wiring must be done by a certified electrician.
All cover plates must be secured tightly. There shall be no open slots. Blank cover plates are available. Top and bottom mounting
tabs are incorporated to mount inside an Atlas Rack. All rack mount rails are designed to be breakaway, if they are not needed.
Simply bend the tab back and forth until the tab breaks away. Be careful of sharp edges.
ECM-3BP Module Cover Plate
The ECM- RACEWY6 can hold up to 6 ETA-ECM20 / ETA-ECM20M Modules, however it is ok to use less than 6 modules. The
open slot on the ECM-RACEWY6 can be covered up using an ECM Module Blank Plate cover. Two of these are included with the
ECM-RACEWY6. If not needed, discard them. If additional Blank Plates are required they can be purchased in packages of three.
ECM-ACIN Wire Kit
ETA offers a wire kit of stranded 12-guage UL wire for wiring the ETA-ECM20 Modules together plus additional length for wiring
the incoming AC to an AC Mains panel. 140" of each color of Green, White and Black are included. Note: As a reference, It takes
around a foot of wire between ETA-ECM20 modules, if they are wired on the same incoming AC Main. It is highly recommended
that the wire needed for the job is carefully measured. It may take more than one ECM-ACIN wire kit depending on how many AC
Mains and the distance from the AC Mains Panel. It is not necessary to use Atlas ECM-ACIN wire kit as long as it is 12-gauge and
UL listed.
ETA-ECM20M 20A AC Control Module
The features, data wiring and the functionality of the ETA-ECM20M are the same as the ETA-20SH and the ETA-15SH. The
ETA-ECM20M is designed to be installed in the ECM-RACEWY6. Read above for operation details.

ETA-ECM20 20A AC Control Module (No Current Monitoring)
The ETA-ECM20 does not support the same Current monitoring or EMI/RFI Filter feature as the ETA-ECM20M, ETA-20SH and the
ETA-15SH models have. However, it does support AC Spike and Surge Suppression, AC Mains Voltage monitoring, EVS circuitry
and Remote Activation.
In certain applications ETA Systems suggests using an ETA-ECM20 Module vs. an ETA-ECM20M in places where some of the
features would be redundant because of the electrical location of the ECM module. This would be a cost savings to use a less
expensive ECM module where redundant circuitry is not needed.
Example: One 20A Incoming AC line, Two sequenced AC outlets are required, use one ETA-ECM20M and one ETA-ECM20 module
wired in parallel. Explanation: If the AC Mains system required a sequenced outlet and did not require more than 20A of service
for a portion of the AC power system, an ETA-ECM20M module can be placed in parallel with an ETA-ECM20M module. It is not
necessary to have Amperage readings from both ECM Modules because you can read the current from the ETA-ECM20M Module
which could be in parallel with an ETA-ECM20 Module which is on the same incoming AC line as the ETA-ECM20M module. They
would have the same current reading because they are in parallel. Also, the EMI and RF filtering are across the same AC line leg,
so both ECM Modules connected to that line are filtered, no need to have redundant filtering. Note: In this wiring configuration
you still get the Voltage monitoring to see if the module is active and have extra surge protection. See ECM Module wiring
configurations.
ECS-KSW6
The ETA‑ECS6 can be remotely activated with each channel being monitored by using
the Atlas Power ECS-KSW6 control panel available through ETA Systems. This panel
can be placed several hundred feet away from the ETA‑ECS6 controller. A Keyed On
/ Off switch is provided for security. There are six Bi-Color LEDs on the ECS-KSW6
panel. One LED for each of the six sequenced channels of the ETA‑ECS6. These
LEDs mimic the Channel Activation LEDs that are on the front of the ETA‑ECS6 panel.
Please refer to that section for complete details. Wiring the ECS-KSW6 panel requires
a RJ45 connector and 8 conductors. Note: This is not an IP Ethernet port and is only
used for connectivity between ETA‑ECS6 and the ECS-KSW6 units. Wiring of this
connector is the same as an Ethernet cable. Do not mis wire the connector or damage
may occur.

EXAMPLES ETA-ECM20/M20RW MODULE WIRING CONFIGURATIONS
The ETA-ECM20/M20RW is designed to be mated with the ECM-RACEWY6 housing and the ETA-ECS6RM controller. The specific job
AC power requirements and power distribution layout will dictate how the ETA-ECM20M Modules are wired into the Raceway. Each
ECM Module can be wired as a single 20A run or in a parallel configuration as illustrated below. Each ECM module has dual 3-position
screw terminal blocks that are in parallel and are clearly labeled as follows:
ECM Module PCB Labeling For incoming AC Mains:
Note: The above figure shows the ECM wiring configuration of one 20A AC main line coming into an ETA-ECM20M, then paralleling
with an ETA-ECM20 type module.
Note: It appears that the wiring is in series but the ECM Module In/Out terminals are in parallel on the PCB.

ETA-ECS6RM
Electrical Control Sequencer
TROUBLESHOOTING
Note: All troubleshooting should be done by a certified electrician.
Issue 1 – ECM Module Incoming AC LED is not illuminated.
Possible Cause #1
Incoming AC mains circuit breaker has tripped due to excessive load.
Action NeededCheck the AC outlet that the ETA-ECS6RM is plugged into for proper voltage. If no voltage is present check
to see if the AC outlet is on a GFI, check to see if it was tripped. If it has not been tripped trace the AC
Mains outlet back to the electrical panel and check the AC Mains breaker to see if it is tripped.
Possible Cause #2AC mains power is OK (120V), internal 15A (ETA-15SH) and 20A (ETA-ECM20, ETA-ECM20M, ETA- 20SH)
Slow Blow fuse is blown.
Action NeededOpen ECM unit and replace the fuse with a Slow Blow type.
Issue 2 – ECM module AC Fault LED is Illuminated on the ECM
Possible CauseAlthough the Clamping Suppression circuit virtually assures protection from most transient voltage spikes
and surges, nature has a way of occasionally creating electrical forces that are beyond the capabilities of
any device to absorb without some degree of damage. In the rare instance that this occurs, the clamping
circuit has been damaged during the suppression.
Action NeededThe unit will need to be repaired or replaced. It is important to have all equipment that was connected to
that AC Mains Line be inspected for proper operation.
Note: The unit will still operate but no AC Spike or Suppression protection will be available.
Issue 3 – ECM module is set External Trigger, the Incoming AC LED is Illuminated but the Active LED is not Illuminated.
Possible Cause #1External DCV from the ETA-ECS6RM is not connected across the “+” and “G” terminals of the ECM
module.
Possible Cause #2External DCV voltage polarity is not correct across the “+” and “G” terminals.
Possible Cause #3External DCV voltage is too low to activate the trigger circuit. Must be a minimum of 5VDC to activate the
ECM module. Possible short in the wiring system.
Issue 4 – E
CM Active LED is not illuminated but the Incoming LED is. The Abnormal LED on the ETA-ECS6RM voltage display
is flashing “OL” and the ETA-ECS6RM Channel that is activating the ECM module Green Status LED is Flashing.
Possible CauseThe AC Mains Voltage was between 101VAC and 107VAC or 127VAC and 132VAC activating the “EVS”
shutdown.
Action NeededThe ETA-ECS6RM must be re-sequenced to reset the circuit. Measure the AC mains before the ECM
module. If the voltage is between 117VAC and 123VAC you may proceed to reset the ETA-ECS6RM by
restarting the start up sequence.
Note: It is important to have all equipment that was connected to that AC Mains Line inspected for proper
operation. If the problem persists, contact your local power company for the cause of unstable AC line
conditions.

ETA-ECS6RM
Electrical Control Sequencer
Issue 5 – E
TA-ECS6RM Channel Activation Status LED is Flashing Green and AC Power and Active LED at the ECM Module is
Illuminated.
Possible CauseThe AC Mains Voltage at the ECM Module reached between 127VAC-132VAC or the voltage dropped
between 101VAC- 107VAC.
Action NeededThe ETA-ECS6RM must be re-sequenced to turn off the LED. Measure the AC Mains before the ECM
Module. If the voltage is between 117VAC and 123VAC you may proceed to reset the ETA- ECS6 by
restarting the start up sequence.
Note: It is important to have all equipment that was connected to that AC Mains Line be inspected for
proper operation. If the problem persists, contact your local power company for the cause of unstable AC
line conditions.
Issue 6 – No Voltage Reading at the ETA-ECS6RM
Possible Cause #1Check Issues 1 - 4 first.
Possible Cause #2Proper Channel is not selected for viewing.
Possible Cause #3Channel Activation LED is Illuminated Green but the Voltage display is not on. Check the wiring between
the ETA-ECS6RM Channel and the ECM module. “V”, “A” and “D” must be in the correct polarity.
Issue 7 – No Current Reading at the ETA-ECS6RM, Meter Reads ‘nA’
Possible Cause #1An ETA-ECM20 Module is connected. This module does not support current read out.
Possible Cause #2Check Issues 1 - 4 first.
Possible Cause #3Current Draw of ECM Module must exceed 500mA to register.
Possible Cause #4Proper Channel is not selected for viewing.
Possible Cause #5Channel Activation LED is Illuminated Green but the Current display reads “nA”. Check the wiring between
the ETA-ECS6RM Channel and the ECM module. “V”, “A” and “D” must be in the correct polarity.
Issue 8 – Not All Channel Status are Illuminated Red or Green
Probable CauseNo ECM Module connected to the ETA-ECS6RM. Note: For any of the 6 Channel Status LEDs to illuminate
a ECM Module must be connected to the ETA-ECS6RM. It ok to use only some of the six channels and not
have all channels illuminated.
Issue 9 – Sequence Timing or Slave / Master Unit Dip Switches Has Been Adjusted but No Effect Has Taken.
Probable CauseAfter changing of the DIP switches you must cycle the ETA-ECS6RM for the settings to take effect.
Issue 10 – Current Meter Reads “nA” on A Selected Channel but the Channels is Functioning.
Probable Cause #1ETA-ECM20 module connected. Only ETA-ECM20M, ETA-15SH and ETA-20SH modules support the current
read out circuitry.
Probable Cause #2The “A” terminal wire is not connected.
Probable Cause #3The correct module type is connected, but there is not enough current being drawn to register. Note: It
takes .7A for current draw from the ECM module for a reading.
Issue 11 – No LEDs are illuminated on the ETA-ECS6RM and the Voltage display reads "nC".
Probable CauseNo ECM modules are connected to the ETA-ECS6RM or the ECM modules have no AC power to them.
