Furman proudly introduces the F1000-UPS: battery backup designed
exclusively for audio/video professionals and home theater aficionados.
For decades, traditional audio/video components were simple analog
devices designed to easily weather power outages of well over two
seconds. Later, as computer and microprocessor based components gained
in popularity, their extraordinary sensitivity to even a fraction of a
second's power loss was managed with traditional UPS (uninterruptible
power supply) technology.
Unfortunately, these units were solely designed for the I.T.
professional. Though they included many technologies and features
appropriate to that application, they fell short for premium
audio/video components. Though many of these manufactures later
recognized the ever-emerging professional audio/video, broadcast, and
home theater market, their lack of experience led merely to a re-tooled
chassis. These hastily produced UPS devices lacked the technologies
necessary to truly optimize protection, performance, and control for
today's audio video components.
The Furman F1000-UPS more than fills this void, and offers your
system unparalleled battery back-up technology, created from the ground
up to meet the exacting demands of the world's most sensitive audio,
video and control systems!
Typical UPS systems feature
antiquated surge suppression technologies that can cause as much damage
and annoying lock-ups as they attempt to prevent. Only Furman offers
battery back-up with our road-proven SMP non-sacrificial, zero ground
contamination surge suppression technology and EVS Extreme Voltage
Shutdown. After all, the most robust battery can not function if the
accompanying circuits are damaged. With Furman's F1000-UPS, you can
expect years of trouble free operation.
Though many control devices are
relatively immune to moderate levels of AC line noise, today's more
sensitive devices (such as DLP projectors) certainly are not.
High-definition technologies have pushed resolution to levels so
extreme that virtually any AC noise capable of coupling with your
system's signal will distort, mask, or destroy the performance
advantages we all strive so hard to capture and reproduce. Once again,
the F1000-UPS is different. While other UPS devices feature AC line
filters suitable for a I.T. closet, only Furman employs our exclusive
Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT). This advanced noise filtering
technology assures that today's ultra-wide dynamic range is maintained
as it must be ' pristine. Remember, less AC noise equals greater
content, greater resolution, and higher definition.
Programmability & Control
systems can vary greatly in their size and components, and as such,
flexibility is needed in determining how a battery backup solution
should function under different circumstances. Because of this, Furman
has provided open source RS-232 control over two independent AC outlet
banks, with a wide range of control features to interface with an
existing automation solution. Dual programmable IR control allows the
unit to send a shut down command to remote components ' no more
expensive projector bulbs to replace in the event of a blackout.
Typical Backup Components
Given the nature of battery backup technology, high-current audio
and video components such as power amplifiers, powered subwoofers, and
high-wattage displays are not recommended for use with the F1000-UPS.
Not only will these components drain battery power quite rapidly, line
impedance will be raised due to the F1000-UPS's (or any) AVR and AC to
DC inverter, which can induce current compression and noticeably
diminish performance with high-current A/V equipment.
The following components are ideal for use with the F1000-UPS:
- Satellite Receivers
- Cable Boxes
- Digital Video Recorders
- Media Servers
- High Resolution Game Gaming Consoles
- Lamp Based Video Display
- Control Systems
For power management of other components, Furman recommends Elite i
or Reference i Series Power Conditioners. For high-current components
such as power amplifiers and powered subwoofers, solutions featuring
Furman's exclusive Power Factor Technology are ideal.
Approximate Run Time, 1000VA **
Satellite Receiver or Cable Box = 45 Minutes
Satellite Receiver + Game Console = 14 Minutes
Media Server + Control System = 9 Minutes
Satellite Receiver + Game Console + Projector = 7 Minutes
** These run times should be used as a guideline only and are dependant on device and usage.
