Uninterruptible power supply - battery backup / power conditioner. 2RU, AVR, RS-232 & USB Interface; BlueBOLT compatible.
The F1500-UPS E battery backup designed exclusively for audio/video professionals and home theatre aficionados.
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 cannot function if the accompanying circuits are damaged. With Furman's F1500-UPS E, you can expect years of trouble free operation*.
While other UPS devices feature AC line filters suitable for an 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.
The F1500-UPS E provides True Sine Wave output when in battery backup mode, ensuring the utmost reliability to all connected equipment while running on battery power.
At 1500VA, the F1500-UPS E provides substantial backup time for most critical digital A/V components. If more runtime is needed, a 1500VA battery pack (BATT1500-EXT, sold separately) may be used to further increase runtime (up to four times) as the application demands.
BlueBOLT compatibility (via BlueBOLT-CV1 interface card, sold separately), offers remote control over any Internet connection via a truly plug-and-play, hosted, web-based graphical user interface, with full control and power monitoring functionality. RS-232 control with a wide range of commands to interface with an existing control unit is included. Dual programmable IR control allows the unit to send a shut down command to remote components in the event of a blackout.
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 F1500-UPS E. Not only will these components drain battery power quite rapidly, line impedance will be raised due to the F1500-UPS E'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 F1500-UPS E:
For power management of other components, Furman recommends Classic, Prestige 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.
Satellite Receiver or Cable Box = 80 Minutes
Media Server + Control System = 40 Minutes
Digital Mixing Console (24 Channel) = 20 minutes
DAW Computer + Digital I/O + External Hard Drive + 24” LCD Monitor = 12 Minutes
