Audio/Video equipment requires consistent, clean power to operate at decent levels. This is true for both studio/recording and live/touring gear. Now take a moment to think about all that gear. Every instrument, speaker, mixer and microphone all plugged into a wall outlet or outlet strip. That gear is left unprotected if a power failure happens. The session/show would be cut short! Luckily there are uninterruptible power supply (UPS) units to keep things moving along. When it comes to protection against power failures, Furman has you covered.
Two of the models of Furman uninterruptible power supplies are the F1000-UPS and the F1500-UPS. They are designed specifically for audio/video professionals and home theater enthusiasts. In addition to that, there are a couple expansion options for the F1500-UPS: the BATT1500-EXT external battery pack and the BlueBOLT-CV1 IP card. Let’s take a look at these four pieces of equipment.
F1000-UPS and F1500-UPS
The Furman F1000-UPS and Furman F1500-UPS are uninterruptible power supplies that also feature voltage regulation and power conditioning capabilities. Dual IR output controls allow for components to be programmed for shutdown sequencing. These battery backups are 1000VA and 1500VA, respectively, and are able to maintain critical data in the chance of a power failure. Voltage regulation technology offers a consistent output of 120V. Optional rack ears are included with both models.
Each Furman uninterruptible power supply also features exclusive power conditioning technology. Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) provides AC surge and spike protection. Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) helps provide clear audio/video quality by filtering out noise and maintaining a great dynamic range. Extreme Voltage Shutdown technology safely shuts down the units and any connected equipment in the event of a power failure or any dangerous voltage irregularities.
These power supplies work best with satellite receivers, digital video recorders, cable boxes, media servers, high resolution gaming consoles, control systems and more! However, Furman advises against using either the F1000-UPS or the F1500-UPS with power amplifiers, high-wattage displays and powered subwoofers.
BATT1500-EXT and BlueBOLT-CV1
The Furman F1500-UPS has a couple features that the F1000-UPS doesn’t. The F1500-UPS is compatible with both the Furman BATT1500-EXT external battery pack and the BlueBOLT-CV1 IP card. The external battery pack brings extended runtime to the uninterruptible power supply. It matches the unit and can be rack or tower mounted in just two units of Rackspace.
The Furman BlueBOLT-CV1 is an interface card that provides access to BlueBOLT cloud-based remote power technology. With this interface card and the compatible software, users can monitor device functions and power status.
