Furman

Furman has been producing high-quality products since 1974. Initially the company was focused on audio electronics for recording studios.

Nowadays Furman have a range of power products for numerous applications including sound reinforcement; home and professional recording; post production; broadcast systems; commercial audio/video installation; and commercial/residential energy monitoring and management.

Furman’s focus on engineering innovative, leading edge AC power technologies has led to revolutionary developments such as the trusted, professional-grade Series Multi-Stage Protection, Linear Filtering Technology, Extreme Voltage Shutdown, True RMS Voltage Regulation, and Power Factor Technology.

F-1500-UPS

Furman's F1500-UPS battery backup is designed exclusively for audio/video professionals.

For decades, traditional audio/video components were simple analog devices designed to easily weather power outages of well over two seconds. Later, as computer and microprocessor-based components gained in popularity, their extraordinary sensitivity to even a fraction of a second's power loss was managed with traditional UPS (uninterruptible power supply) technology.

Unfortunately, these units were solely designed for the IT professional. Though they included many technologies and features appropriate to that application, they fell short for premium audio/video components. Though many of these manufacturers later recognized the ever-emerging professional audio/video, broadcast, and home theater market, their lack of experience led merely to a retooled chassis. These hastily produced UPS devices lacked the technologies necessary to truly optimize protection, performance, and control for today's audio video components.

The Furman F1500-UPS more than fills this void, and offers your system unparalleled battery back-up technology, created from the ground up to meet the exacting demands of the world's most sensitive audio, video, and control systems.

Protection
Furman offers battery back up with road-proven SMP non-sacrificial, zero-ground contamination surge suppression technology and EVS Extreme Voltage Shutdown. The most robust battery cannot function if the accompanying circuits are damaged, and with these combined features, the Furman's F1500-UPS ensures years of trouble-free operation.
Note:As with any battery back up system, the battery pack must be replaced periodically (2.5 to 3 years typically).

Filtration
Though many control devices are relatively immune to moderate levels of AC line noise, today's more sensitive devices (such as DLP projectors and line-level signal processors) aren't. High-definition technologies have pushed resolution to levels so extreme that virtually any AC noise capable of coupling with your system's signal will distort, mask, or destroy the performance advantages we all strive so hard to capture and reproduce. Instead of using AC line filters suitable for an IT closet, Furman employs their exclusive Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) to four discrete isolated outlet banks. This advanced noise filtering technology assures that today's ultra-wide dynamic range is maintained as it must be”pristine. Remember, less AC noise equals greater content, greater resolution, and higher definition.

True Sine Wave Output
The F1500-UPS provides True Sine Wave output when in battery backup mode, ensuring the utmost reliability to all connected equipment while running on battery power.

Expandability
At 1500VA, the F1500-UPS provides substantial backup time for most critical digital A/V components (see runtime chart). If more runtime is needed, 1500VA battery packs (BATT1500E-EXT) may be daisy chained to double, triple, and further increase runtime as the application demands.

Programmability & Control
Audio/video systems can vary greatly in their size and components, and as such, flexibility is needed in determining how a battery backup solution should function under different circumstances. Because of this, Furman has provided open source RS-232 control over four independent AC outlet banks, with a wide range of features to interface with an existing control unit. Dual programmable IR control allows the unit to send a shut down command to remote components in the event of a blackout”no more expensive projector bulbs to replace in the event of a blackout.
