Furman P-8 Pro Series II Power Conditioner  From Furman

Rack Mountable 20 Amp Power Conditioner

Furman Sound

Manufacturer's Description from Furman


The most widely recognized and trusted name in AC power conditioning is proud to introduce the P-8 PRO II power conditioner featuring Furman's revolutionary SMP technology. Furman's Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) circuit features our exclusive Linear Filter Technology (LiFT) and Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) and a high current TVZ-MOV. Together; these technologies comprise what is, without question, the world's most advanced and comprehensive transient voltage surge suppressor.

SMP (Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus)

Furman's SMP surge suppression virtually eliminates service calls. Traditional surge suppression circuits sacrifice themselves when exposed to multiple transient voltage spikes, requiring the dismantling of your system, and repair of your surge suppressor. Not so with SMP. With Furman's SMP, damaging transient voltages are safely absorbed, clamped and dissipated - no sacrificed parts, no service calls, no down time.

Unique to Furman's SMP is its unparalleled clamping voltage, even when tested beyond the grueling specifications of - USA/CIDA's A-1-1 test. While other designs offer clamping voltages that are well above 300VAC peak (far beyond long accepted professional standards), Furman's SMP clamps at 188VAC peak, 133 VAC RMS even when tested with multiple 6000VAC - 3000 Amp surges! This unprecedented level of protection is only available with Furman's SMP technology.

LiFT (Linear Filtering Technology)

Unfortunately, traditional AC filter/conditioners have been designed for unrealistic laboratory conditions. Prior technologies could actually harm audio and video performance more than they help, due to the resonant peaking of their antiquated, non-linear designs. Under certain conditions, these designs can actually add more than 10 dB of noise to the incoming AC line! Worse still, lost digital data, the need to reboot digital presets, or destroyed digital converters are frequently caused by excessive voltage spikes and AC noise contaminating the equipment ground. Furman's SMP with LiFT takes another approach, ensuring optimal performance through linear filtering and no leakage to ground.

E.V.S. (Extreme Voltage Shutdown)

Furman's trusted overvoltage circuitry protects against all too frequent accidental connections to 208 or 240VAC by shutting off the incoming power until the overvoltage condition is corrected.

Rear Panel BNC Connector

For rear panel illumination, a BNC connector is provided for connection of any standard gooseneck lamp, such as the Furman GN-LED or GN-I (sold seperately).

Features

  • SMP provides the highest level of protection available
  • LiFT significantly reduces AC line noise
  • E.V.S. protects equipment from dangerous overvoltage conditions
  • Zero ground contamination circuitry assures delivery of pure AC
  • BNC connector on the rear panel allows connection of any standard gooseneck lamp
  • Eight rear panel outlets and one front panel outlet
  • 20 amp rating, with high inrush capable magnetic circuit breaker
  • Front panel master power switch protected by hinged panel to prevent accidental power off
  • 10 foot, 12 gauge heavy-duty power cable
  • Three year limited warranty

About Manufacturer

Furman Sound has been producing high-quality, professional products since 1974. Our products fall into two broad categories: the audio and video signal processors (on which the company was founded) and the innovative AC power conditioning and distribution products for which we are best known. Applications for these products are no longer limited to music, but also span a wide range of markets. Our highly acclaimed CE line, established in 2001, incorporates a complete line of AC power management products specifically engineered for today's home theater systems. Additional applications for our Professional Audio/Video products include sound reinforcement, home and professional recording, post production, broadcast systems, telecommunications, and data processing. Recently we were proud to introduce the next generation in power conditioning technology: Series II. All Series II units feature our revolutionary Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus (SMP+) circuit. Developed over a period of two years by our highly skilled team of engineers, our new circuit incorporates our exclusive Linear Filter Technology (LiFT) and Extreme Voltage Shutdown (E.V.S.), making it the most advanced power-conditioning system available. SMP+ can be found in all Series II and Power Factor units. We at Furman are proud of our 34 year history, but are focused on the future and our commitment to stretch the bounds of technology to provide the most advanced power purification solutions for any application.
