The Furman PL-PRO DMC is the latest generation of Furman’s legendary 20 amp power conditioners, featuring Furman’s exclusive Series Multi-Stage PROtection Plus (SMP+) with Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) and Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) for ultra-reliable protection of your gear. The Furman PL-PRO DMC also incorporates a USB port on the front panel to allow for the charging of MP3 players and other such devices that can be recharged via USB. Considering how affordable this level of protection is, you can’t afford to not have a Furman PL-PRO DMC.
Furman PL-PRO DMC at a Glance:
- Multi-stage protection.

- Linear filtering technology.
- LED rack lights and BNC jack for gooseneck lamp.
- USB for charging for external devices
SMP+ (Series Multi-Stage Protection Plus)
The Furman PL-PRO DMC’s SMP+ surge suppression virtually eliminates service calls. Traditional surge suppression circuits ‘sacrifice” themselves when exposed to multiple transient voltage spikes, requiring the dismantling of your system, and repair of your surge suppressor. Not so with SMP+. With the PL-PRO DMC’s SMP+, damaging transient voltages are safely absorbed, clamped and dissipated. No sacrificed parts, no service calls, no down time.
Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS)
Unique to the Furman PL-PRO DMC’s SMP+ is its unparalleled clamping voltage (even when tested beyond the grueling specifications of – USA/CIDA’s A-1-1 test). While other designs offer clamping voltages that are well above 300VAC peak, (far beyond long accepted professional standards), the Furman PL-PRO DMC’s SMP+ clamps at 188VAC peak, 133 VAC RMS even when tested with multiple 6000VAC – 3000 Amp surges! This unprecedented level of protection is only available with Furman’s SMP+ technology. Additionally, Furman’s trusted over-voltage circuitry protects against all too frequent accidental connections to 208 or 240VAC, by shutting off the PL-PRO DMC’s incoming power until the over voltage condition is corrected.
LiFT (Linear Filtering Technology)
Unfortunately, traditional AC filter – Conditioners have been designed for unrealistic laboratory conditions. Prior technologies could actually harm audio and video performance more than they help, due to the resonant peaking of your antiquated, non-linear designs. Under certain conditions, these designs can actually add more than 10 dB of noise to the incoming AC line! Worse still, lost digital data, the need to re-boot digital pre-sets, or destroyed digital converters are frequently caused by excessive voltage spikes and AC noise contaminating the equipment ground. The Furman PL-PRO DMC’s SMP+ with LiFT takes another approach, ensuring optimal performance through linear filtering and no leakage to ground.
LED Rack Lights
The Furman PL-PRO DMC features LED rack lights which produce virtually no heat and provide an extremely long life span. A dimmer control for the rack lights allows the user to adjust the level of illumination or simply switch the lights off. Additionally, the Furman PL- PRO D II has a rear mounted BNC jack which accepts any standard (12VAC, 0.5A) gooseneck lamp for rear rack illumination, as well as a front panel switch which controls the gooseneck’s operation.
USB for charging for external devices
Portable music players are becoming a staple on live sound music gigs and the PL-PRO DMC has a front-panel USB port for charging and powering of these devices

The Classic Series from Furman brings together superior protection and outstanding performance in a sturdy, rack-mountable design. The Classic Series features Furman’s revolutionary Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP), Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT), and Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS). Together, these technologies comprise what is, without question, one of the world’s most advanced and comprehensive transient voltage surge supressors.
You’ve got a rack for your effects, preamps, tuner…You’re going to plug that into the wall? One big spike and your rig is up in smoke. Furman’s advanced Series Multi-Stage Protection defends your gear from the spikes and surges that are so common at music gigs and practice spots. With Furman’s advanced Linear Filtering Technology, you’ll get a quieter tone without pops, crackles, and the local radio station coming out of your amp.
Can’t track down where that noise is coming from? Your mix sounding flat? With Furman’s advanced Linear Filtering Technology you’ll lower the noise floor caused by the dirty AC power coming into your console or DAW. Furman’s advanced advanced Series Multi-Stage Protection keeps your sensitive digital equipment from acting funny or burning up due to everyday spikes and surges. With a 15A capacity and eleven total outlets, it’s enough to power your whole home studio.
Bars, clubs and other event venues have some of the worst power out there – from air compressors turning on and off to light shows pulling current loads up and down, the AC power can be a strain on the circuits in your rig. Furman’s advanced Series Multi-Stage Protection and LiFT keeps the bad stuff out and the dual pull-out front panel lights let you discreetly see your board and gear without distracting from the show on the dance floor.
When you’re out there music gigging, you never know what kind of power you’re going to get. The wear and tear on mobile rigs eventually takes it toll – that’s why it’s intelligent to plug into Furman’s advanced Linear Filtering Technology. It keeps your equipment safe and sounding clean. Whether you’re setting up a show at the local club or powering up the church band for your next service, make sure you give them power they can trust.
Furman’s exclusive SMP technology provides the highest level of surge & spike protection available.
