Furman F1500-UPS Programmable Uninterruptible Power Supply
A significant advance over Furman's previous 1500VA battery backup, the M1500-UPS-PFP, the new F1500-UPS features Furman's SMP/LiFT/EVS power protection and filtration technologies--the same level of protection and filtration found in their popular Classic Series power conditioners.

Especially designed for A/V installations and recording studios, I'm already familiar with SMP via my PL-Pro DMC power conditioner and Furman's expertise at battery backup with their M1500-UPS-PFP. You might say I'm a big disciple of taking care of the problems with the AC power provided by the aging power line grid in this country.

SMP is a surge protection circuit that does not have to be serviced or replaced after dealing with a voltage spike. It dissipates and absorbs the surge and is ready for more, The Linear Filter technology "cleans" the power coming into your studio of line noise and trash riding on it. EVS shuts off the AC power instantly when an over or under voltage condition occurs--like that very common computer power supply killer--a "brown out." The F1500-UPS also regulates voltage, providing a stable 120V 5% output.

The F1500-UPS adds increased battery capacity (1500VA) that is expandable via an optional external battery pack (BATT1500-EXT) connected to the back panel. The F1500-UPS features eight outlets in four isolated banks, has BlueBOLT™ compatibility for remote IP control using an optional IP card, and will provide a full load of 1500VA true sine wave battery backup for up to 12-minutes and half load for 32-minutes. When power is interrupted, it switches in under 4ms so that your MAC G5 will not reboot--saving you from a big problem if you are in the middle of a Pro Tools session!

A big insurance policy that pays instantly when trouble is bound to occur, the F1500-UPS sells for $1,299.95 and much more information is at: www.furmansound.com.
