At InfoComm 2011, Furman says it will unveil the first two products in its new Contractor Series: the CN-1800S and CN-2400S programmable SmartSequencers. The two mark the debut of Furman's SmartSequencing technology, which allows complex AV systems in commercial installations to be powered on and off safely with a press of a button or turn of a key.
The new CN-1800S (15A capacity) and CN-2400S (20A capacity) combine AC power distribution, protection, filtration, and sequential system power on/off in 1RU, 120VAC units. SmartSequencing's bidirectional communications between installed units enables a primary unit to control and sequence multiple secondary units, ensuring multizone electronic systems are powered on and off safely and dependably from a single control point across an entire installation, company officials said. Units can be connected via current loop at runs of more than 1,000 feet with full backwards compatibility with Furman's legacy sequencers.
The CN-1800S and CN-2400S also support RS-232 communication with command sets for integration with control systems. An optional RS-232-to-Ethernet adapter adds full IP-addressability to the units, allowing them to be controlled, programmed, and monitored from a smartphone, tablet, PC, or any Web-enabled device via Telnet, direct HTTP connection, or Panamax/Furman's BlueBolt-hosted remote power and energy management platform.
Both devices feature eight rear-panel outlets (in addition to one front-panel convenience outlet) in four duplex outlet banks, with three of the banks capable of being sequenced on and off with an adjustable delay. All outlets provide clean, safe power with Furman's SMP, EVS, and LiFT protection and filtration technologies.
The CN-1800S and CN-2400S will be available in Q4 2011, while the RS-232-to-Ethernet adapter will be available in Q1 2012.
