Your clients expect top performance from the audio and video systems you install. Today’s A/V technologies are more sophisticated than ever, but the AC grid that powers our equipment is increasingly overtaxed and often antiquated. AC problems can cause performance issues, reduced reliability, and damage to sensitive components. Furman’s solutions are engineered to address today’s real-world needs.
Furman delivers far more than surge protection, but our protection is second-to-none. Typical surge suppressors rely exclusively on sacrificial components to protect your equipment from voltage surges and spikes. They are designed to “Take the bullet” when exposed to a catastrophic voltage irregularity. This hopefully will save your equipment, but it might also sacrifice internal components in the process. In a best-case scenario, this leaves your equipment unprotected until the surge suppression device can be repaired or replaced. In the worst case, the device can’t absorb the entire surge before failing or letting voltage pass into your system and damage your equipment.
Furman’s technology is different. One example is our Series Multistage Protection (SMP) system in which the offending 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 protects itself, as well as your connected equipment.
