Furman Brings Solutions for Every Pro A/V Requirement to InfoComm 2008

New Merit -x Series

For the first time at InfoComm, Furman will be showing its new Merit -x Series, an upgrade to Furman's existing Merit line. For the value -conscious contractor, the new Merit -x Series provides convenient, heavy -duty, rack -mountable power -conditioning solutions at a low cost. The three new units feature a more robust chassis with wall -wart spacing on the rear panel to accommodate bulky power transformers; increased AC noise filtration for a lower noise floor; and a higher joule rating for superior protection.

The M -8x provides eight filtered and protected rear -panel outlets with a front -panel convenience outlet, and a "Protection OK" indicator light. The M -8Lx adds pull -out light tubes (with dimmer knob) for discreet rack illumination, while the M -8Dx provides light tubes as well as a laboratory -grade, front -panel digital voltmeter to monitor incoming voltage.

Merit -x Export Series
Also being demonstrated at InfoComm 2008 is Furman's new Merit -x Export Series of single -space rack -mount power conditioners. Ideally suited for professional commercial installations and music industry applications, this marks the first time that Furman's Merit Series will be available to customers in 220V -240V countries. The M -10x E provides 10 filtered and protected rear -panel outlets, a front -panel convenience outlet, and a "Protection OK" indicator light. The M -10Lx E adds pull -out light tubes with a dimmer knob. The Furman Export models operate at a 10 -A capacity and include a 1.5 -meter, removable IEC C -13 female -to -Schuko -male power cord.

M1500 -UPS -PFP Programmable UPS
New for InfoComm, the M1500 -UPS -PFP maintains power temporarily during short blackouts or brownouts to prevent lengthy restart sequences, and protects equipment by allowing it to safely shut down during extended blackouts. The true sine wave M1500 -UPS -PFP features unique IR control that allows automation for remote components that require a shut down procedure (allowing, for example, ceiling projectors to cool their lamps properly to prevent damage from excessive heat before shutting down). In addition, voltage regulation prevents equipment lock -ups due to power sags, and keeps equipment from heating up. An RS232 interface provides programming control and interface for automation systems and personal computers.

Powerful Cost -Effective Solution for Displays
Almost every installation includes a display. To receive peak performance from high -end displays and ensure component longevity, Furman offers the AC -215, a compact power purification and protection unit that is ideal for mounting on the back of a flat -screen television, next to a projector, or in any application where discreetly located, remote power purification and protection are needed. This small and easy -to -install 15A capacity unit includes two outlets and features all the protection and purification features of Furman's SMP for virtually maintenance -free AC surge protection, Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) to assure audio/video clarity, and EVS to protect equipment from dangerous overvoltage situations.
