|FURMAN PM-8 II Power Conditioner|
Series Mode Protection, Digital volt/ammeter, 120V/15A
The most widely recognized and trusted name in AC power conditioning, is proud to introduce the PL-8 II, PL-Plus II, PL-Plus D II, PM-8 II Power conditioners, featuring Furmanís revolutionary SMP technology. Furmanís Series Mode Protection (SMP) circuit also features our exclusive Linear Filter Technology (LiFT). Together; these technologies comprise, what is without question, the worlds most advanced and comprehensive transient voltage surge suppressor.
SMP (Series Mode Protection)
Furmanís maintenance-free SMP surge suppression virtually eliminates service calls. Traditional surge suppression circuits ďsacrificeĒ themselves when exposed to multiple transient voltage spikes, requiring the dismantling of your system, and repair of your surge suppressor. Not so with SMP. With Furmanís SMP, damaging transient voltages are safely absorbed, clamped and dissipated. No sacrificed parts, no service calls, no down time.
Unique to Furmanís SMP is its unparalleled clamping voltage (even when tested beyond the grueling specifications of - USA/CIDAís A-1-1 test). Unlike some Series Mode Suppressors, Furmanís maintenance free feature is NOT at the expense of safety! While other designs offer clamping voltages that are well above 300VAC peak, (far beyond long accepted professional standards), Furmanís SMP clamps at 188VAC peak, 133 VAC RMS even when tested with multiple 6000VAC - 3000 Amp surges! This unprecedented level of protection is only available with Furmanís SMP technology. Additionally, Furmanís 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 filter - Conditioners have been designed for unrealistic laboratory conditions. Prior technologies whether multiple pole filter or conventional series mode, 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. Furmanís SMP with LiFT takes another approach, ensuring optimal performance through linear filtering and no leakage to ground.
The PL -8 II, PL-Plus II, and PL-Plus D II feature LED rack lights which produce virtually no heat and provide an extremely long life span. A dimmer control for the rack lights allows the user to adjust the level of illumination or
simply switch the lights off.
Additionally, all units include 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 gooseneckís operation.
A front panel mounted master switch controls operation of the rear outlets, and glows red when the power is on. The front-panel circuit breaker can be quickly and easily reset should the unit be overloaded. The Series II also features a 10 foot, 14 gauge heavy-duty power cable.
