Intelligent Power Management Solutions for Professional Integrators


CN-1800S SmartSequencer

  • SmartSequencing™ Technology allows large or complex A/V systems to be safely powered on and off with the simple press of a button or key turn.
  • Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) ensures zero downtime for mission critical installations by safely eliminating dangerous surges & spikes.
  • Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) safeguards from catastrophic under and over voltage conditions.
  • Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) ensures maximum equipment performance by reducing AC noise in a linear fashion across a wide-bandwidth spectrum.
  • 15 amp capacity.

SmartSequencing™ technology allows large and complex A/V systems to be safely powered on and off with a simple press of a button or turn of a key - even by non-technical personnel. SmartSequencing’s bidirectional communications between installed units enables a primary unit to control and sequence multiple secondary units, ensuring multi-zone electronic systems are powered on and off safely and dependably across an entire installation. Units can be connected via current loop at runs of more than 1,000 feet with full backwards compatibility with Furman’s legacy sequencers or a wide variety of third party products.

Providing robust control options, the CN-1800S (15 amp) supports RS-232 communication with command sets for integration with control systems. An optional RS-232-to-Ethernet adaptor (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.


CN-2400S SmartSequencer

  • SmartSequencing™ Technology allows large or complex A/V systems to be safely powered on and off with the simple press of a button or key turn.
  • Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) ensures zero downtime for mission critical installations by safely eliminating dangerous surges & spikes.
  • Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) safeguards from catastrophic under and over voltage conditions.
  • Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) ensures maximum equipment performance by reducing AC noise in a linear fashion across a wide-bandwidth spectrum.
  • 20 amp capacity.

Furman’s Contractor Series MiniPorts extend the benefits of SmartSequencing to electronics outside of the equipment rack, providing tremendous flexibility to any installation scenario. Units may be daisy-chained and fully controlled via a Furman SmartSequencer, legacy Furman sequencer, third-party sequencers, via the Internet (with BB-RS232 adaptor and SmartSequencer), and/or control and automation systems.

DIP switches and potentiomenter allows customization of settings such as sequencing delays, 12V on/off, and more. Security covers are provided to prevent unauthorized personnel from tampering with DIP switches.

Sequencing of duplex initiatied remotely by standard analog triggering (remote terminal) or digital link (SmartSequencing from CN-1800S or CN-2400S).

CN-20MP 20 Amp MiniPort

  • SmartSequencing™ Technology allows large or complex A/V systems to be safely powered on and off with the simple press of a button or key turn.
  • Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) safeguards from catastrophic under and over voltage conditions.

The BB-RS232 Adaptor provides Ethernet connectivity to BlueBOLT-supported products that are otherwise only capable of RS-232 communication. Once the Adaptor is connected between the BlueBOLT-supported product (via RS-232) and the site’s Local Area Network (via Ethernet), the product can communicate with our BlueBOLT servers.
