Professional, high performance installations require professional, high performance products.
Furman delivers intelligent power management solutions to professional integrators worldwide. Our 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 Audio/Video installations need audio power amplifiers to activate last. Our solution is the AC Power Sequencer. The 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 amplifiers. When shutting down the A/V system, a sequencer will turn off the system in the reverse order, hence the amps will be turned off first, and then the signal processing equipment will be turned off last.
All of this is necessary because as most sound reinforcement professionals know, the majority of equipment damage occurs when devices are either powered up or powered down. Power sequencing allows equipment to power up in sequence and prevent the dreaded “pop”. The “pop” is a speaker pop associated with on/off switching of signal processing equipment while the audio power amplifiers are energized. If the signal processing “pop” is amplified sufficiently, the result can damage speaker components. AC power sequencing is extrememly valuable as it prevents this unwanted, and often costly, circumstance.
Furman Contractor Series equipment also allows sound reinforcement equipment to be remotely powered up or powered 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:
- 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.
