New Products and Technologies on Display at InfoComm 2010:
At InfoComm 2010, Furman will be displaying and demonstrating its full line of professional A/V power management products, including the new P-3600 AR G global voltage regulator and revolutionary BlueBOLT(TM) cloud-based energy management technology.
The BlueBOLT(TM)-CV1 Interface Card Brings the Power of Energy Management and Remote Monitoring Technology to A/V Installations
At InfoComm 2010, Furman will demonstrate its groundbreaking BlueBOLT(TM) energy management and remote power monitoring technology. Available for select Panamax/Furman products via the BlueBOLT-CV1 interface card, BlueBOLT provides secure, hosted IP (Internet Protocol) system control and energy monitoring for A/V systems. Users can control BlueBOLT-equipped units through Panamax/Furman’s hosted BlueBOLT servers for secure plug-and-play setup. The card is also compatible with the Telnet protocol for integration into existing control systems.
With BlueBOLT, electronic system contractors can drastically reduce service calls and help their clients be more energy efficient. BlueBOLT allows individual outlets or outlet banks to be power-cycled from any Web browser or Web-enabled mobile device, while voltage and current consumption can be monitored in real time or tracked over a time period. E-mail notifications are sent when power anomalies are detected, allowing installers and end users to take immediate action in the event of a catastrophic surge, brownout, blackout, or other power event. BlueBOLT also provides a simple and convenient way to manage energy consumption by cutting off all current to select components, thereby eliminating wasteful stand-by power in an A/V system.
The BlueBOLT-CV1 interface card (MSRP $249.95) is currently compatible with Furman’s F1500-UPS, and several other compatible products are currently under development.

P-3600 AR G Global Voltage Regulator
The Prestige Series P-3600 AR G is a 3-RU power conditioner/True RMS voltage regulator that offers a one-of-a-kind power management solution for A/V professionals around the globe. The P-3600 AR G ensures stable 120V power delivery from any input voltage source between 88V to 133V or 170V to 265V. The unit provides connected 120V equipment with stable voltage, power protection, and AC line filtration, ideal for use with 120V A/V gear when traveling to countries with 100V, 220V, 230V, or 240V services.
The P-3600 AR G’s predecessor, the Furman AR-PRO, has been an indispensable product for many professional users. The updated model features Furman’s True RMS regulation technology (utilizing an ultra-low-noise torroidal isolation transformer/autoformer, high-current switching TRIACs, and microprocessing control) to step-down or step-up input voltages. The unit also offers Furman’s exclusive LiFT/SMP/EVS technologies for professional-level protection and linear AC noise filtration.
These features, along with the P-3600 AR G’s 30A output capacity and wide input voltage capture range, make it a unique solution among other portable power conditioner/voltage regulators and a reliable, application-specific alternative to typical step-up/step-down transformers.
The P-3600 AR G will be available in Q3 2010, at an MSRP of $5,000.
