Furman CN-1800S Power Conditioner with SmartSequencing (15A)

Furman CN-1800S Power Conditioner with SmartSequencing (15A)



Furman CN-1800S Overview


The 15A Power Conditioner with SmartSequencing from Furman is designed for commercial A/V installers who want to combine robust control capabilities via SmartSequencing Technology, advanced AC protection, AC noise filtration, and optional compatibility with the BlueBOLT Remote Power and Energy Management Platform (BB-RS232 adapter required and sold separately).

It features SmartSequencing technology, which allows large and complex A/V systems to be safely powered on and off with a simple press of a button or turn of a key, even by non-technical personnel. 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. Units can be connected via current loop at runs of more than 1000’ (304.8m) with backwards compatibility with Furman’s legacy sequencers.

In addition, the CN-1800S offers robust control options, equipped with RS-232 ports and command sets for integration with control systems. An RS-232-to-Ethernet adapter (sold separately) adds full IP-addressability to the unit, allowing it 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.

Surge Protection

SMP (Series Multi-Stage Protection) Technology provides the highest level of surge and spike protection (sold separately). Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) ensures zero downtime for mission-critical installations by safely absorbing, clamping, and dissipating transient surges and spikes without damage to internal circuitry or connected equipment.

Noise Filtration

LiFT (Linear Filtration Technology) reduces AC noise linearly across a very wide bandwidth for unequaled audio and video clarity. LiFT (Linear Filtering Technology) ensures maximum performance from connected equipment by reducing AC noise evenly across the audio and video bandwidth.

Voltage Protection

Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) circuitry safely powers down itself and connected equipment during unsafe voltage periods. Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) safeguards from catastrophic undervoltage (under 80V sustained) or overvoltage (over 145V sustained) conditions. Circuits may be set to auto-reset when voltage returns to normal or manual reset after an event is detected.


SmartSequencing allows bidirectional, safe sequenced power-up/-down operations via the push of a button or turn of a key. SmartSequencing technology allows large and complex A/V systems to be safely powered on and off with a simple press of a button or turn of a key, even by nontechnical personnel

Diagnostic Lights

Diagnostic lights provide valuable system information including power quality, protection ok indicator, and extreme voltage indicator

Output Current (15A)

15A maximum current capacity with incorporated 15A thermal circuit breaker

Remote Access (RS-232)

RS-232 compatibility and command set provide integration with control systems, open source, and control programming. RS-232 compatibility and command set provide integration with control systems and an RS-232-to-Ethernet adapter (sold separately) allows for control, programming, and monitoring from any Web-enabled device via Telnet, direct HTTP connection, or Panamax/Furman’s BlueBOLT platform.

BlueBOLT Compatible

BlueBOLT provides remote access to reboot components, power equipment on/off, and monitor power quality via the Internet from anywhere in the world.
