Furman PS-8R II – No Longer Available
The most widely recognized and trusted name in AC power conditioning is proud to introduce the PS-8R II power conditioner/sequencer, featuring Furman’s revolutionary SMP+ technology. Furman’s Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus (SMP+) circuit also features our 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 advanced and comprehensive transient voltage surge suppressor
SMP+ (Series Multi-stage Protection Plus)
Furman’s SMP+ surge suppression virtually eliminates service calls. Traditional 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 Furman’s SMP+, however, damaging transient voltages are safely absorbed, clamped and dissipated. No sacrificed parts, no service calls, no down time.
Unique to Furman’s SMP+ is its unparalleled clamping voltage. While other designs offer clamping voltages that are well above 300Vpk, Furman’s SMP+ clamps at 188Vpk, 133 VAC RMS even when tested with multiple 6000Vpk - 3000 amp surges! This unprecedented level of protection is only available with Furman’s SMP+ technology. Additionally, Furman’s trusted over-voltage circuitry protects against all too frequent accidental connections to 208 or 240VAC, by shutting off the incoming power until the over voltage condition is corrected.
LiFT (Linear Filtering Technology)
Unfortunately, traditional AC fi lter - 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 10 dB 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 equipment ground. Furman’s SMP+ with LiFT takes another approach, ensuring optimal performance through linear fi ltering and no leakage to ground.
- The PS-8R II Power Conditioner/Sequencers is capable of powering up a rack full of equipment in a three-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 II’s may be installed in remote locations and operated via low-voltage wiring
- The PS-8R II includes a rear mounted BNC jack which accepts any standard (12VAC, 0.5A) gooseneck lamp for rear rack illumination as well as a front panel switch which controls the gooseneck’s operation
GN-I or GN-LED: These gooseneck lights (either incandescent or LED) are the perfect accessory to any Series II unit. They plug into the BNC jack on the rear panel to conveniently illuminate the rear of your rack. These versatile lights can also be used with a variety of other products in other applications.
PS-REL Relay: Allows a PS-8R II to be turned on by sensing AC at a preamp’s switched outlet; also allows daisy-chaining for 6 or more delayed outlet groups.
