Furman CN-1800S
15 Amp Bidirectional Smart Sequencer for Professional Integrators

OUR PART #  CN1800S


Designed specifically for Commercial A/V Installers, the Furman CN-1800S SmartSequencer™ merges robust control capabilities via SmartSequencing™ Technology with advanced AC protection, AC noise filtration, and optional compatibility with the BlueBOLT® Remote Power and Energy Management Platform (BB-RS232 adapter required, sold separately).

The CN-1800S is one of the first products to feature Furman’s SmartSequencing™ technology, enabling large and complex A/V systems to be powered on and off safely with a simple button press or turn of a key, even by nontechnical personnel. SmartSequencing's bidirectional communications between installed units allows a primary unit to control and sequence multiple secondary units, ensuring that multizone electronic systems are powered on and off safely and dependably from a single point of control across an entire installation. Units can be connected via current loop at runs of more than 1,000 feet with backwards compatibility with Furman’s legacy sequencers.

Additionally, it provides robust control options, and is equipped with RS-232 ports and command sets for integration with control systems. An optional 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.

Furman CN-1800S Features:

  • Surge Protection
    Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP)Technology provides the highest level of surge & spike protection available.
  • Noise Filtration
    Linear Filtration Technology (LiFT) reduces AC noise linearly across a very wide bandwidth for unequaled audio & video clarity.
  • Voltage Protection
    Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) circuity safely powers down itself and connected equipment during unsafe voltage periods.
  • SmartSequencing™
    SmartSequencing allows bidirectional, safe sequenced power up/down operations via the push of a button or turn of a key.
  • Diagnostic Lights
    Diagnostic lights provide valuable system information including power quality, “Protectection Ok” indicator, and Extreme Voltage indicator.
  • 15 Amp Output Current
    15 amp maximum current capacity with incorporated 15 amp thermal circuit breaker.
