Protection You Can Trust!The most widely recognized and trusted name in AC power conditioning is proud to introduce the PS-8R II power conditioner/sequencer, with Furman's revolutionary SMP+ technology. Furman's Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus (SMP+) circuit also features exclusive Linear Filter Technology (LiFT) with Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) and a high-current TVZ-MOV. Together, these technologies comprise what is, without question, the world's most cutting-edge and comprehensive transient voltage surge suppressor.
Furman PS-8R II Power Conditioner/Sequencer at a Glance:
- Protects against even extreme voltage surges
- Protects your gear with sequenced power-on
- Real-world Linear Filtering Technology ensures optimal performance
- Capable of powering a full rack of equipment
- SMP+ surge suppression virtually eliminates service calls
Protects your gear with sequenced power-on
The Furman PS-8R II power conditioner/sequencer helps you avoid speaker thumps and gear-damaging power-on spikes. Six sequenced rear-panel outlets (in 3 groups), two switched rear panel outlets, and one-front panel switched outlet give you plenty of plug-in options. But the PS-8R II goes far beyond just sequencing!
SMP+ surge suppression virtually eliminates service calls
The PS-8R II employs Furman's SMP+ surge suppression that virtually eliminates service calls. Old school surge suppression circuits are designed to just "sacrifice" themselves when exposed to multiple transient voltage spikes, requiring the dismantling of your system, and repair of your surge suppressor. With the PS-8R II and Furman's SMP+, however, damaging transient voltages are safely absorbed, clamped and dissipated. No sacrificed parts, no service calls, no down time.
Protects against even extreme voltage surges
One-of-a-kind to Furman's SMP+ is its unparalleled clamping voltage. While other designs offer clamping voltages that are well above 300 volts (peak), Furman's SMP+ clamps at 188 volts peak, 133 volts AC (RMS) even when tested with multiple 6000volts peak/3000 amp surges! This unprecedented level of protection is only available with Furman's SMP+ technology. Additionally, the PS-8R II features Furman's trusted over-voltage circuitry that protects against all-too-frequent accidental connections to 208 or 240 volts AC, by shutting off the incoming power until the over voltage condition is corrected.
Real-world Linear Filtering Technology ensures optimal performance
Unfortunately, old school 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 10dB of noise to the incoming AC line! Worse still, lost digital data, the need to re-boot digital pre-sets, or destroyed digital converters are frequently caused by excessive voltage spikes and AC noise contaminating the gear ground. The PS-8R II's SMP+ with LiFT takes another approach, ensuring optimal performance through linear filtering and no leakage to ground.
Capable of powering a full rack of equipment
The PS-8R II Power Conditioner/Sequencer is capable of powering up a rack full of gear in a 3-step delayed sequence. The sequence is reversed for power-down. The sequence can be initiated with either momentary or maintained switches, locally or remotely. A duplex outlet is provided for each delay step. One or more Furman PS-8R IIs may be installed in remote locations and operated via low-voltage wiring. The PS-8R II includes a rear mounted BNC jack which works with any standard (12 volts AC, 0.5 amp) gooseneck lamp for rear rack illumination, plus a front panel switch which controls the gooseneck's operation
