Bring all the magic of the road home.
Legendary artists and professional recording studios rely on Furman products. And now you can too. Your clients expect top performance from the audio and video systems you install, and we help you deliver.
Today’s A/V technologies are more sophisticated than ever, but the AC grid that powers our equipment is increasingly overtaxed and often out of date. AC problems can cause home entertainment performance issues, reduced reliability and even damage sensitive, costly components. Furman product solutions are engineered to address today’s real-world needs and bring all the power to the people – wherever they are.
Superior power makes the most of home entertainment.
Don’t let inferior power conditioning and protection equipment degrade an install. Look to Furman solutions for proper power, surge suppression and world-class technologies.
Typical surge suppressors rely exclusively on sacrificial components to protect equipment from voltage surges and spikes. They’re designed to “take the hit” when exposed to a catastrophic voltage irregularity. Yes, this might save the connected equipment, but in the process it also destroys an internal component of the inferior surge protector. This is like a blown fuse in an old-fashioned fuse box.
In a best-case scenario, this outdated approach to surge/spike mitigation leaves your equipment unprotected until the surge suppression device can be repaired or replaced. In the worst case, the alleged protection device can’t absorb the surge before failing or letting voltage pass into your system and damage equipment.
Furman’s technology is different.
One example of the Furman exclusive technology is the Series Multistage Protection (SMP™) system in which the voltage spike is critically damped so that the overall energy level is reduced to a fraction of what the clamping device can handle. Like a well-tuned shock absorber, the SMP circuit bounces back and protects itself as well as the connected equipment.When you’re outfitting a house with the latest technology, be sure to use best in class power and protection solutions. Trust Furman products for worry free protection and bring all the power and passion of the concert to every home.
Install only the best.
When you need power conditioning and protection equipment, look to the best available. Install Furman products. We’re backed by a 40-year legacy of unprecedented performance, quality and reliability.
Professional, high performance installations such as arenas, conferences and houses of worship require professional, high performance products. That means Furman products. They deliver intelligent power management solutions to pro integrators worldwide and are known to enhance every application.
The SmartSequencers™ combine classic Furman power protection and filtration with sequential system power on/off to enable large or complex A/V systems to be safely powered on and off in proper sequence with the simple press of a button or key turn.
WHY CHOOSE POWER SEQUENCING?
Many pro A/V installations need audio power amplifiers to activate last in sequence. The Furman solution is the AC Power Sequencer. This power sequencer provides AC power to outlet groups one at a time. This allows equipment to be powered up and down in an orderly fashion by first providing power to signal processing equipment and then providing power to the amps. When shutting down the A/V system, a sequencer turns the system off in the reverse order, hence the amps will be turned off first and the signal processing equipment will be turned off last.
This is critical because most equipment damage occurs when devices are either powered up or down. Power sequencing allows equipment to power up in sequence and prevent the dreaded “pop.” The pop is a distinctive speaker noise associated with on/off switching of signal processing equipment when the audio power amplifiers are energized. If the signal processing pop is amplified sufficiently, the result can damage speaker components. AC power sequencing is extremely valuable because it prevents this unwanted and often costly circumstance.
Furman Contractor Series Equipment
This series of products also allows sound reinforcement equipment to be remotely powered up or down over a large distance, not just in the immediate vicinity of the operator. Additionally, Maintained or Momentary mode contact switching allows the user great flexibility when controlling the unit from a remote location. A remotely mounted switch or control pad can be used to sequence equipment on or off. In addition, Furman Contractor Series remote functions can be initiated across a room, on-site, or off-site with RS-232 protocol or our cloud-based BlueBOLT technology.
Furman SmartSequencers feature these legendary technologies:
Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP™) ensuring zero downtime for mission critical installations by safely eliminating dangerous surges & spikes.
Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS™) safeguarding from catastrophic under and over voltage conditions.
Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT™) enabling maximum equipment performance by reducing AC noise in a linear fashion across a wide-bandwidth spectrum.
