Furman F1500-UPS: battery backup designed exclusively for audio/video professionals and home theater aficionados.

Furman's F1500-UPS provides 1500VA true sine wave battery backup, SMP and EVS protection, Linear Filtration, and AVR standard level voltage regulation to provide ideal backup and protection to equipment that risk data loss or damage in the event of a power outage. The F1500-UPS' robust 1500VA battery backup provides true sine wave output (ideal for A/V equipment) and will keep connected equipment powered on for up to 15 minutes at half load, 7 minutes at full load, allowing ample time to save data and shut down equipment properly. If extended runtime is needed, external battery packs (BATT1500-EXT, sold separately) are available and may be daisy-chained to the F1500-UPS increase battery capacity. Additionally, the F1500-UPS is a full-featured power conditioner that filters and purifies AC power, reducing line noise and ensuring optimum performance. Not only will your equipment perform better with Furman's Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT), but it will also be fully protected by our exclusive Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP), and Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS). This circuitry provides the highest level of transient spike and overvoltage protection available. A wide set of control features include critical load management, IR blaster to shut down remote components, open-source programming and control via RS-232, PC control software with USB interface, front panel control, and optional remote TCP/IP control with interface cardFeatures:
  • 1500 VA Battery Backup maintains critical data and allows orderly shutdown in the event of a power outage
  • Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) provides virtually maintenance-free AC surge suppression
  • Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) for unequaled audio/video clarity
  • Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) protects your equipment from sustained overvoltage conditions
  • Dual Learning IR Blasters allow safe shutdown of remote components

For decades, traditional audio/video components were simple analog devices designed to easily weather power outages of well over two seconds. Later, as computer and microprocessor based components gained in popularity, their extraordinary sensitivity to even a fraction of a second's power loss was managed with traditional UPS (uninterruptible power supply) technology.

Unfortunately, these units were solely designed for the I.T. professional. Though they included many technologies and features appropriate to that application, they fell short for premium audio/video components. Though many of these manufactures later recognized the ever-emerging professional audio/video, broadcast, and home theater market, their lack of experience led merely to a re-tooled chassis. These hastily produced UPS devices lacked the technologies necessary to truly optimize protection, performance, and control for today's audio video components.

The Furman F1500-UPS more than fills this void, and offers your system unparalleled battery back-up technology, created from the ground up to meet the exacting demands of the world's most sensitive audio, video and control systems!

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, you can expect years of trouble free operation.

Though many control devices are relatively immune to moderate levels of AC line noise, today's more sensitive devices (such as DLP projectors and line-level signal processors) certainly are not. High-definition technologies have pushed resolution to levels so extreme that virtually any AC noise capable of coupling with your system's signal will distort, mask, or destroy the performance advantages we all strive so hard to capture and reproduce. Once again, the F1500-UPS is different. While other UPS devices feature AC line filters suitable for an IT closet, only Furman employs our exclusive Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) to four discrete isolated outlet banks. 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.

True Sine Wave Output
The F1500-UPS 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 provides substantial backup time for most critical digital A/V components (see runtime chart). If more runtime is needed, 1500VA battery packs (BATT1500E-EXT) may be daisy chained to double, triple, and further increase runtime as the application demands.

Programmability & Control
Audio/video systems can vary greatly in their size and components, and as such, flexibility is needed in determining how a battery backup solution should function under different circumstances. Because of this, Furman has provided open source RS-232 control over four independent AC outlet banks, with a wide range of features to interface with an existing control unit. Dual programmable IR control allows the unit to send a shut down command to remote components in the event of a blackout "– no more expensive projector bulbs to replace in the event of a blackout. Optional TCP/IP control (separate interface card, available Q4), offers remote control over any Internet connection via a truly plug-and-play, hosted, web-based graphical user interface, with full remote control and power monitoring functionality.

* As with any battery back up system, the battery pack must be replaced periodically (2.5 to 3 years typically)

Approximate Run Time, 1500VA

Satellite Reciever or Cable Box = 80 Minutes
Control System + Media Server = 40 Minutes
Digital Mixing Console (24 channel) = 20 minutes
DAW Computer + Digital I/O + External Hard Drive + 24" LCD Monitor = 7 minutes

Typical Backup Components

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. Not only will these components drain battery power quite rapidly, line impedance will be raised due to the F1500-UPS'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:

  • DAWs
  • Satellite Receivers
  • Cable Boxes
  • Digital Video Recorders
  • Media Servers
  • External Hard Drives
  • Digital Mixing Consoles
  • Lamp Based Video Displays
  • Control Systems

For power management of other components, Furman recommends Classic or Prestige Series Power Conditioners. For high-current components such as power amplifiers and powered subwoofers, solutions featuring Furman's exclusive Power Factor Technology are ideal.
