Furman continues its tradition of innovation with the INFCOMM 2014 debut of BlueBOLT cloud-based power and energy management to the Furman Contractor Series Power Sequencers.
At the 2014 INFOCOMM Show opening Wednesday in Las Vegas, Nevada, Core Brandswill be marking the 40th anniversary of its Furman brand, known world-wide as the premier provider of power purification and management solutions. Founded in 1974, Furman continues to innovate the professional A/V power conditioning and distribution markets, now delivering energy management solutions through the cloud-based BlueBOLT platform.
At the show, Furman is presenting the BB-RS232 adaptor which brings BlueBOLT energy management to the Furman Contractor Series of products, beginning with the Furman CN-1800S, CN-2400S and CN-3600S E. The platform gives commercial integrators the award-winning solutions already benefitting the residential CI market, including remote re-boots which substantially reduce service calls.
“The world has changed immensely in 40 years, and our products have never been more relevant than they are today — especially as companies and individuals become more connected and reliant on electronic systems to help them work, play, communicate and live,” said John Benz, Director of Power and Accessories at Core Brands. “As electronics become more mission-critical than ever, keeping systems healthy is not just about power. We’re committed to delivering a solid foundation of power, energy and network management that creates a reliable infrastructure for our customers. We are grateful to our loyal customers for trusting Furman over the past 40 years, and we fully intend to continue innovating on their behalf.”
Amplifying that point, Benz noted that, “Furman’s long history of engineering power products has provided us with a rich knowledge base and legacy to continue our tradition of innovating and building better products year in, year out. It’s challenging to maintain market leadership for as long as we have. We owe our success to our focus on listening to and understanding our customers’ needs, and then applying our expertise to develop products that meet their requirements even in the most demanding applications.”
Originally founded primarily as a manufacturer of line signal processing products, Furman captured the industry spotlight a few years later with its state-of-the-art power products — and the company has dominated the premium power management market ever since. Furman was acquired by Panamax, LLC in 2007 and is now part of Core Brands, LLC.
