The Furman M-8 is the perfect low-cost AC power solution for many rack mount systems. Install an M-8 in the top slot of your rack, and the eight switched AC outlets in the rear panel will power up and protect all your equipment up to a 15-amp load.
M-Series conditioners protect your delicate electronic equipment by combining high voltage varistor (MOV) surge and transient suppressors. The fast-acting supression circuit quickly responds and clamps transient voltages to safe levels. An RFI/EMI interference filter works to prevent noise from fluorescent lights, certain dimmers, radio transmitters, and similar sources of “electronic pollution” from contaminating the AC line and from there, leaking into sensitive audio, video, or computer circuits. The M-8 is NRTL/TUV listed.
For safety, a circuit breaker is provided on the rear panel. If the total load on the Power Conditioner (combining all outlets) exceeds the 15A (or 1800 watt limit), the circuit breaker will trip. If this happens, it may be easily reset by pushing in the button. There is no need to replace fuses.
The M-8 has a convenient master switch for the rear outlets which glows when the power is on.
All Merit Series Power Conditioners are protected by a limited one year warranty covering manufacturer defects. Warranty service is provided by Furman Sound, Inc.
