Furman Announces New F1000-UPS Power Supply and Conditioner for A/V Applications

Battery Backup Prevents Data Loss and Regulated Shutdown of Equipment in the Event of a Power Outage

PETALUMA, Calif. — Feb. 4, 2009 — Furman, a world-leading provider of power management solutions, has unveiled the new F1000-UPS rack-mount uninterruptible power supply/power conditioner, providing battery backup, power protection, voltage regulation, and line noise filtration for A/V equipment.

The F1000-UPS provides a 12-A capacity with 1000-VA battery backup to prevent data loss and allow orderly shutdown of connected equipment in the event of a power outage. The first UPS solution to feature Furman’s advanced non-sacrificial SMP surge/spike protection circuit, Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS), and Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT), the F1000-UPS provides professional-level protection, filtration, and backup with several features engineered specifically for the needs of A/V systems. The F1000-UPS is ideal for installed sound systems, DAW workstations, and any electronics that risk data corruption or equipment damage in the event of power loss.

The F1000-UPS is fully programmable via RS-232, USB, or LCD front panel interface. The front panel interface also displays valuable system and diagnostic information such as battery time remaining based on current load and voltage input/output. Critical Load Management allows the user to prioritize allocation of battery power to connected equipment, and a programmable IR blaster provides safe shutdown of remotely located equipment, such as video projectors whose bulbs might otherwise be compromised in the event of a blackout.

The robust, road-worthy chassis includes removable rack ears and may be installed in a system rack (2RU height) or on any flat surface. A latching, removable front panel allows the hot-swappable batteries to be replaced without turning the unit off, removing the unit from the rack, or dismantling any connected equipment.

The F1000-UPS will begin shipping in February 2009, with a suggested retail price of $729.95.
