    The recently renovated auditorium at Delano (Minnesota) High School has been outfitted with a new sound reinforcement system by design integration firm Farber Sound (Medina, MN), with power management from Furman implemented to protect premium components from JBL Professional, Crown Audio, BSS, Soundcraft and Shure. The 437-seat auditorium is used for activities ranging from assemblies to musical and theatrical performances, requiring full-range, highly intelligible sound reinforcement. To help insure the new system consistently performs, Farber Sound chose Furman ASD-120 AC… View this story

    Avista Stadium, home to the Spokane ((Washington) Indians of the Class A Northwest League, an affiliate of Major League Baseball’s Texas Rangers, recently implemented a complete system protection solution utilizing a variety of technology from Furman. The stadium, built in 1958, has seen several minor (and a few major) renovations over the years as annual budgets allow. Cary Cummings, systems designer at Spokane-based Hoffman Pro Systems, which has been tending to the stadium’s audio system’s needs for over two decades,… View this story

    Core Brands has introduced the Furman P-8 PRO C, a new power conditioner joining the Classic Series 20Amp and outfitted with Furman technologies such as Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) and Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT). Housed in a rugged 1RU chassis with a minimalistic front panel, the nine-outlet P-8 PRO C is designed for power conditioning applications where front panel metering and illumination are not required. SMP surge protection circuit technology’s safely absorbs, clamps and dissipates transient voltages, helping to eliminate… View this story

    At InfoComm 2014 this week in Las Vegas, Core Brands is marking the 40th anniversary of its Furman brand, a premier provider of power purification and management solutions. Founded in 1974, Furman continues to serve the professional A/V power conditioning and distribution market, and is now delivering energy management solutions through the cloud-based BlueBOLT platform. At the show, Furman is presenting the BB-RS232 adaptor which brings BlueBOLT energy management to the Furman Contractor Series of products, beginning with the Furman… View this story

    power techniques
    Bill Whitlock 06/11/14 12:05 PM,
    When a system contains two or more pieces of equipment that are grounded, whether via power cords or other ground connections, a “ground loop” will likely be formed. (See Figure 1, below.) Although ground loops often involve power line safety ground connections, disabling them is both highly dangerous and illegal. However, devices called “ground isolators” can be inserted in the signal path to break the loop safely. This approach attacks the problem at its fundamental roots, while tampering with safety… View this story

    no shock zone
    Mike Sokol 02/05/14 03:12 PM,
    Provided by the No Shock Zone.   In part 1, we covered what voltage is and a bit on how it’s measured. Here let’s look at how to use a basic digital voltmeter to measure any power outlet or extension cord for proper voltage. The reason this procedure is so important is that sometimes venues do crazy things with power outlets. For instance. I was teaching a seminar last year in a “gymnatorium” and plugged in my little demo rack… View this story

    Provided by the No Shock Zone.   Most musicians really don’t want to learn about electrical engineering, or even how basic electricity works. Everyone, however, should learn how to test for and avoid electric shocks on stage. Guitar amps and mixing boards as wired from the factory are inherently safe, but they can become silent-but-deadly killers if plugged into an extension cord or wall outlet that’s improperly grounded. This is because guitars are held in moist hands while wet lips… View this story

    Juice Goose is now shipping the CQ 1 (“Qiwi”), a new concept in AC power sequencing that fits in a 2-gang wall enclosure and functions without a master control device, meeting a need for distributed, non-racked power control presented by the proliferation of powered loudspeakers. Qiwi operates just like the other Juice Goose CQ Series models with plug-and-play networking simplicity. It’s 15-amp duplex turns on with a single sequence event. Like other CQ models, the Qiwi has a sequence signal… View this story

    Do I really need an AC (alternating current) power conditioner or regulator? Isn’t my surge protector enough? Two of the most commonly asked questions regarding power, for sure. Answers, in part, come from an understanding of modern-day realities. AC power is far noisier and contaminated than at any time since its inception. This is due not only to an increased population taxing utility lines, but also because of the proliferation of computers and microprocessors. These devices typically run on switching… View this story
