Furman PL-PLUS DMC – 15A w/Voltmeter/Ammeter
Powerful Protection from Furman
Furman PL-PLUS DMC is the latest generation of Furman’s legendary 15 amp power conditioners, featuring Furman’s exclusive Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus (SMP+) with Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) and Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) for ultra-reliable protection of your gear. A front-panel voltmeter/ammeter lets you keep an eye on your voltage levels and a diagnostic light lets you know your PL-PLUS DMC is functioning properly. Considering how affordable this level of protection is, you can’t afford to not have a PL-PLUS DMC!
SMP+ (Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus)
The Furman PL-PLUS DMC’s 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 the PL-PLUS DMC’s SMP+, damaging transient voltages are safely absorbed, clamped and dissipated. No sacrificed parts, no service calls, no down time.
Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS)
Unique to the Furman PL-PLUS DMC’s SMP+ is its unparalleled clamping voltage (even when tested beyond the grueling specifications of — USA/CIDA’s A-1-1 test). While other designs offer clamping voltages that are well above 300VAC peak, (far beyond long accepted professional standards), the Furman PL-PLUS DMC’s 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 Furman’s SMP+ technology. Additionally, Furman’s trusted over-voltage circuitry protects against all too frequent accidental connections to 208 or 240VAC, by shutting off the PL-PLUS DMC’s 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 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. The Furman PL-PLUS DMC’s SMP+ with LiFT takes another approach, ensuring optimal performance through linear filtering and no leakage to ground.
LED Rack Lights
The Furman PL-PLUS DMC features 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, the Furman PL- PLUS DMC includes 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 gooseneck’s operation.
