Furman Announces the New P-1800 AR Rack-Mount Voltage Regulator for Pro A/V Applications

PETALUMA, Calif. — Jan. 28, 2009 — Furman, a world-leading provider of power management solutions, today announced the P-1800 AR rack-mount voltage regulator/power conditioner. A successor to Furman’s popular AR-15 II, the P-1800 AR provides stable voltage protection and line noise filtration for any A/V installation where reliable, comprehensive protection is needed.

The P-1800 AR provides consistent 120-V output (±5 V) from input voltages ranging from 97 VAC to 137 VAC. Unlike commercial voltage regulators, the P-1800 AR’s new True RMS voltage regulation technology, featuring an ultra-low-noise, microprocessor-controlled eight-tap toroidal autoformer, is engineered for use in any A/V environment.

The benefit of True RMS is the assurance of quiet operation for critical listening and recording applications, with minimal leakage of stray magnetic fields. Additionally, when the autoformer switches voltage taps at the zero cross points of both voltage and current, it does not inject noise into the audio signal, thus providing stable voltage when subjected to severe voltage fluctuations — even when connected to power generators.

The P-1800 AR offers Furman’s advanced Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT), SMP surge/spike protection, and EVS (Extreme Voltage Shutdown) technologies for professional-level protection from spikes, surges, and dangerous prolonged voltage conditions. The 15-A unit features eight fully regulated, protected, and filtered rear panel outlets and a front panel convenience outlet.

The unit’s rear panel outlets are separated into two banks to minimize electrical cross-talk between components. The first bank offers outlets spaced wide enough to accommodate bulky “wall warts,” and features Furman’s innovative “Secure Straps” to lock plugs in place. The P-1800 AR’s front panel features a switchable digital voltmeter/ammeter with a color-coded voltage range indicator for comprehensive power monitoring, as well as a USB outlet that can be used to charge cell phones, portable media devices, or to power a USB lamp.

The P-1800 AR will begin shipping in February 2009, with a suggested retail price of $999.
