Advanced Protection for TVs Plus EVS Auto-Reset
The most widely recognized and trusted name in AC power conditioning has done it again with the AC-215A compact power conditioner. It offers the same advanced power protection and conditioning you'll find with Furman's full-size components, but it's small enough to mount to the back of a flat screen TV mount.
The AC-215A boasts Furmanís revolutionary Series Multi-Stage Protection. This critical circuit features the company's exclusive Linear Filter Technology (LiFT) and Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS). Together, these technologies comprise a highly advanced and comprehensive transient voltage surge suppressor.
At only 1.75" high, 5" wide, 8.5" deep, and weighing in at only 3 lbs., the AC-215A's compact, low-profile design makes it ideal for mounting to the back of a flat-screen television, or anywhere that discretely located, remote power protection and purification are needed.
E.V.S. (Extreme Voltage Shutdown)
Furmanís trusted Auto-Reset EVS overvoltage circuitry protects against all too frequent accidental connections to 208 or 240VAC by shutting off the incoming power until the overvoltage condition is corrected.
SMP (Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus)
Furmanís SMP surge suppression virtually eliminates service calls. Traditional surge suppression circuits sacrifice 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. While other designs offer clamping voltages that are well above 300 VAC peak (far beyond long accepted professional standards), Furmanís SMP clamps at 188 VAC peak, 133 VAC RMS even when tested with multiple 6000 VAC, 3000 amp surges! This unprecedented level of protection is only available with Furmanís SMP technology.
LiFT (Linear Filtering Technology)
Traditional AC filter/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 reboot digital presets, 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.
