Product Details

Furman AR-1215 AC Voltage Regulator And Conditioner 15A

The 15 amp Furman AR-1215 AC Line Voltage Regulator is intended to protect audio, video, computer, and other electronic equipment from problems caused by AC line voltage irregularities—sags, brownouts, or overvoltages that can cause sensitive digital equipment to malfunction, or in extreme cases, sustain damage. The AR-1215 is designed to provide a steady, stable 120 VAC output. It accepts any input voltage from 97V to 141V and transforms it to a constant 120V, plus or minus 5V. Voltages outside that range may also be converted to usable levels, depending on how far out of range they are.

The AR-1215 can handle loads totaling up to 15 amps as long as the input voltage is above 124 volts. For voltages below that level, its capacity must be de-rated at approximately .15 ampere per volt. The AR-1215 was designed specifically with the unique needs of audio and video in mind. Its technology differs from that of computer-oriented voltage regulators in many important ways.

For example: The AR-1215 does not use a ferro-resonant transformer, which would be heavy and bulky, radiate a large magnetic field, and be too frequency-sensitive to be usable with generators. Instead, its design is based on an eight-tap toroidal autoformer. The toroidal design assures minimal leakage of stray magnetic fields.

The AR-1215 circuitry monitors the incoming line voltage with each cycle, comparing it to an extremely precise voltage reference, accurate to ±0.15%. If a voltage fluctuation requires that a different tap be selected, the new tap is electronically switched exactly at the zero-crossing, to avoid distorting the AC waveform. (Most commercial voltage regulators using multiple-tapped transformers switch taps at uncontrolled times, thereby creating voltage spikes, and often creating clicks that can leak into the audio.) Hysteresis of 1.5V in the switching circuits avoids “chatter.” The design is not sensitive to small errors in line frequency, making the AR-1215 ideal for use with generators. The AR-1215 also features power conditioning that is truly in a class by itself, thanks to the quantity, quality, and configuration of the overvoltage suppression devices used. These include MOVs and high voltage inductors and capacitors. This unique combination can safely divert large spikes, as well as filter audible high frequency noise.

An additional feature, Extreme Voltage Shutdown, senses dangerously high or low voltages and shuts down the output before any damage is done. The output remains off until the overvoltage or undervoltage is removed, with an LED indicating the shutdown condition. This invaluable feature provides positive protection to your equipment from accidental connection to incorrect line voltages (for example, 220V when 120V is expected, a not uncommon hazard in the entertainment industries).

The Furman AR-1215 has eight outlets on the rear panel and one on the front panel. All outlets are regulated, spike-suppressed, and filtered against RFI with a 3-pole filter. There are no controls except the circuit breaker/on-off switch. A bar-graph meter comprised of 10 LEDs indicates input voltage, while another LED indicates “In Regulation” status (i.e., that the output voltage is within plus or minus 5V of 120V.) The unit is housed in a compact, single space rack-mount chassis, 1.75" high and 8" deep and weighs only 12 lbs. (5 kg). 10 ft. power cord length.
