Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is this a surge protector or just a power strip? Not used to buying something without a Joules rating. Help! Need for my whole TV setup?
    It provides 540 Joules protection as well as EMI and RFI protection.. Furman is one of the best names in power conditioning for MUSICAL equipment. That should definitely be considered. I’ve used this brand for decades with zero problems. I’m currently using an M8lx conditioner and one of these branching off of it for added protection of a Gibson guitar/Marshall amp setup with numerous add-on equipment (pedals/PA amps etc.)
  • What is the let through rating on this surge protector?
    Electrical Rating: 15A, 1800 Watt; Voltage protection rating L-N 400V, L-G 400V, N-G 400V. Type 3 SPD. I like it because of the extra-long cord.
  • Does anyone know what amount of current will pop the breaker on this? I assume 15 amps can’t seem to confirm that.
    I have tested it with a 600 Watts Oster Blender and a Bosch driller at the same time, because I had to cut the power plug, to use a Neutrik NAC3FC-HC PowerCon, and it doesn’t pop, or be hot, It is made to be reliable so it was made like the main power strip, I also connect it a 1600w vacuum cleaner and not a problem.
  • Can I use this for my iMac and speakers studio monitor?
    Yes! This would be great to protect your studio equipment from electrical surges and inconsistencies. We sell this in our amazon store.
  • Can this be used as a power line conditioner on my generator?
    I would not recommend using a MOV-based surge protector with a generator. The MOVs shunt to the ground and the generator may not have a ground line. There have been fires started when MOV surge protectors are used in ungrounded power situations.
  • Would this protect two individually powered speakers so that they could be turned on and off with the Furman rather than individually?
    That I’m not sure. I do know that typically it is best to turn off powered speakers and monitors using the onboard power controls themselves. I might be concerned that turning them off using the power switch might blow the speakers unless they were turned down completely ahead of time. I am not an engineer.
  • I seem to have a problem with electrical noise that may come from an elevator. Recommendation for a good noise filer?
    I had a similar problem in my recording studio. I connected all devices to several of these units and the problem disappeared.
  • Is this better than a surge protector at reducing noise? I get a lot of electric guitar hum from kitchen appliances/heaters and a lot of emf rf hum.
    Yes better than a surge protector, but it will not eliminate all noise.
  • Does this help filter ground hum noise?
    Yes, it fixed my ground hum issues. It doesn’t fix all noise issues but it will fix most of them.
  • Does it come with a normal 3-pin plug Inlet/outlet?
    Yes, it does.
