Furman Sound to Show New Products at InfoComm 2005To showcase new surge protectors and power conditioners (May 17, 2005)
Furman Sound will be showcasing their new surge protector and power conditioner technologies at InfoComm 2005.
SMP+ ? Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus
Furman's Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus (SMP+) delivers the purest AC power and the most comprehensive protection available, going far beyond what is found in traditional surge strips.
Furman's proprietary SMP+ employs three important technologies
* LiFT (Linear Filtering Technology) ensures that all sensitive audio/video components are fed linearly filtered AC power. This dramatically reduces noise, ensuring consistent, peak performance from A/V equipment.
* SMP (Series Multi-Stage Protection) stops electrical surges and spikes at greater levels than other available products without sacrificing itself, meaning it continues to do its job again and again without the need for maintenance, replacement, or replacement parts.
* EVS (Extreme Voltage Shutdown) responds to overvoltage conditions that would damage or destroy A/V equipment by shutting the system down.
Only Furman Sound offers the degree of protection found with SMP+ technology, and SMP+ is in the process of being implemented in all of Furman's existing and new product lines.
New Products for INFOCOMM 2005
AC-215 ? Power Purification and Protection Unit
With the AC-215, Furman Sound offers a compact power purification and protection unit that is ideal for mounting on the back of a flat-screen television display, next to a projector, or in any application where discreetly located, remote power purification and protection are needed. This small and easy-to-install unit includes two rear-panel outlets and features all the protection and purification features of Furman's SMP+ technology, including SMP for virtually maintenance-free AC surge protection, LiFT to assure audio/video clarity, and EVS to protect equipment from dangerous overvoltage situations.
AR-15 ? Voltage Regulator and Power Conditioner
The 15-A AR-15 delivers a stable 120 V of AC power to protect equipment from problems caused by AC line voltage irregularities such as sags, brownouts, or overvoltages ? all of which can cause sensitive electronic equipment to malfunction or sustain damage. The AR-15 accepts any input voltage from 97 V to 141 V and transforms it to a constant 120 V (±5 V). Additionally, the AR-15 is the only regulator available that filters and purifies AC power, reducing line noise and ensuring optimum performance. The AR-15, with eight rear-panel outlets and one front outlet, includes all the features of the new SMP+ technology described above.
Power Factor Pro R ? Power Conditioner With Current Reserve
The new Power Factor Pro R delivers a rack-mount version of the popular power conditioning unit that was originally developed to allow instrument amplifiers to perform to their true potential despite the unpredictability of today's AC power. Since its introduction, the technology has proved valuable in many other applications. The Power Factor Pro R starts with the exclusive SMP+ technology (see above) for protection and purification of the power, and then goes a few steps farther.
Furman's new Power Factor Correction Technology adds another level of filtration to dramatically lower AC line noise to unprecedented levels in the critical audio frequency band, making this the most advanced power conditioner ever built. The Power Factor Pro R also incorporates a current reservoir that stores up to 45 A of current, ready to be delivered when amplifiers or other equipment need it most.
Housed in a compact single-rack-space unit and featuring nine available outlets, the Power Factor Pro R will be used in applications that demand the highest level of power purification.
About Furman Sound
Furman Sound is the world leader in the power conditioning market. The company began manufacturing products for the professional music industry in 1974 and since then has continually stretched the bounds of technology to provide AC power management solutions for a wide range of applications including sound reinforcement, audio/video recording, broadcasting, data processing, telecomm, and home theater, all while maintaining its place as the industry leader.
All Furman Sound products address the fact that AC power will not only interfere with the quality of audio and video signals, but it also can damage and even destroy sensitive A/V equipment in professional and consumer applications. Today's overworked and outdated power grids have made these problems even more critical, as unpredictable and poor-quality AC power is now the norm. The AC noise masks and distorts critical signal information, which in turn cripples performance. Furman's mission is to deliver the latest technology advances and the most advanced products to purify and clean the AC power while also protecting equipment in audio/video applications.
Furman's latest technological advancement, Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus (SMP+), offers Furmans proprietary Linear Filtering Technology to thoroughly clean the incoming AC power and provides the most comprehensive power protection available. SMP+ is in the process of being implemented and rolled out across the company's entire product line.
