Overview: The Furman Classic Series PL-Pro C is rack-mountable
power conditioner, designed for use by audio/video professionals, contractors,
broadcasters, and musicians. It has 8 high-quality AC outlets on the rear panel,
plus a front panel convenience outlet, all controlled by a single switch. It
features a multi-segment LED voltmeter on the front panel so you can confirm at
a glance you're running at optimal voltage levels. The unit is
equipped with rack ears, and takes up 1U of rack space. The PL-Pro C has a
flexible, 10' power cord with three 12-gauge conductors and a NEMA 20 plug
(requires a special 20-amp receptacle with perpendicular blades).
Applications: The PL-Pro C is recommended for professional
audio and video applications, and can be installed in permanent or portable rack
systems. They can be used to protect your mixing boards, amps, preamps, and
effects generators from power spikes and surges when you go on the road. In the
recording studio, the RFI/EMI filtering can give you cleaner recordings by
removing noise cause by dirty AC power. In addition, the front panel lights can
also help you see the controls on your equipment when you're working in a
darkened night club, bar, or other venue.
AC Outlets: The PL-Pro C has eight 3-pronged outlets on the
rear panel, divided into two isolated banks to minimize inter-component
interference and noise contamination. The three outlets in Bank 1 are widely
spaced to accommodate bulky AC power transformers ("wall warts"). Bank 2 has
five outlets spaced narrowly apart to accommodate standard-sized AC plugs. There
is a single 3-pronged outlet on the front panel, providing a convenient place to
temporarily plug in a device, when needed.
USB Charging Port: For convenience, a Type-A USB charging
port is provided on the front panel for powering or charging a smartphone,
tablet, MP3 player, or other device that charges via USB.
SMP (Series Multi-stage Protection): Furman's exclusive SMP
technology provides the highest level of surge and spike protection available.
EVS (Extreme Voltage Shutdown): The PL-ProC will shut itself
off when it detects dangerous voltage irregularities, protecting the connected
equipment from unsafe conditions.
LiFT (Linear Filtering Technology): The PL-Pro C filters the
incoming AC power to insure your equipment is receiving clean power for optimum
audio and video performance.
LED Indicators: Two front panel status LEDs indicate when
the surge protection and noise filtering are working (Protection OK), and can
alert you when the voltage is outside of the normal range (Extreme Voltage).
LED Voltmeter: The PL-Pro C has a three-color, multi-segment
LED AC voltage meter that displays the incoming voltage in 2-volt steps from 90
to 128 volts. This bar-graph volt meter indicates optimal voltage in green LEDs,
with moderate and extremely high or low voltages in yellow and red,
respectively. In addition, abnormal conditions are indicated by special flashing
patterns: the single left-most LED flashing indicates marginally low voltage;
all LEDs flashing indicates marginally high voltage; and no LEDs lit except the
Extreme Voltage LED indicates the unit's has shut down power because the voltage
has exceeded 140 volts.
Pull-out Lights: The PL-Pro C features two "smooth track"
retractable LED lights that illuminate the front panels of the equipment in the
rack. The round "tubes" pull out 3", rotate approximately 90 degrees, and
contain three LEDs each (one white and two amber). The lights can be turned
on/off or dimmed with the front panel switch.
BNC Lamp Connector: In addition to the front panel lights, a
BNC connector is provided for powering a standard gooseneck lamp (not included)
for rear rack illumination. It is rated for 12VAC 500mA.
