15 Amp MiniPort

CN-15MP Features

  • SmartSequencing™
    SmartSequencing allows bidirectional, safe sequenced power up/down operations via the push of a button or turn of a key.

  • Voltage Protection
    Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) safeguards from catastrophic under-voltage (under 80V sustained) or over-voltage (over 145V sustained) conditions. The EVS feature can be selectively enabled or disabled according to the preference of the user.

  • BlueBOLT Compatible®
    IP Control (Telnet or cloud-based BlueBOLT) via SmartSequencing (when connected to CN-1800S/CN-2400S with BB-RS232 Adaptor).

  • Diagnostic Lights
    Diagnostic lights provide valuable system information including power quality.

  • 15 Amp Output Current
    15 amp maximum current capacity with incorporated 15 amp thermal circuit breaker.

  • DIP Switch Customization
    DIP switches and potentiometer 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.

CN-15MP Description

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 potentiometer 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 initiated remotely by standard analog triggering (remote terminal) or digital link (SmartSequencing from CN-1800S or CN-2400S).

The CN-15MP can shut itself off automatically when triggered by a fire alarm.

Advanced Power & Energy Management Solutions

Save Time. Save Money. Save Energy.

BlueBOLT® Remote Power and Energy Management provides real-time, cloud based control and monitoring of the energy used by electronic devices. From easy reboots of locked-up electronics to comprehensive energy tracking and scheduled conservation, BlueBOLT provides a unique combination of control and monitoring directly at the electronics’ power source. Electronics plugged into a BlueBOLT-enabled component can easily be rebooted with the click of a button through BlueBOLT’s easy to use, cloud-based user interface.


Furman Now Shipping Contractor Series SmartSequencers™

Furman has announced that it is shipping its first two Contractor Series products: the CN-1800S (15 amp capacity) and CN-2400S (20 amp capacity) SmartSequencers™.

Designed for commercial A/V installers, the units combine AC power distribution, protection, filtration, sequential system power on/off, and optional compatibility with Panamax/Furman’s BlueBOLT® hosted remote power and energy management platform.
