This F1000-UPS sells for $1069 new right now and our price reflects only the cosmetics, not the working condition.
This high-end Furman UPS and power conditioner arrived in our shop in need of TLC. It would turn on and turn right off indicating a battery test failure, and needed a good cleaning.
We ordered two correct replacement name-brand rechargeable 12V AGM sealed batteries to bring the unit back into normal operation.
Then we tested the F1000-UPS was correctly charging both batteries with success over a period of time in our shop. Please see our photos indicating the battery backup function is working with runtime displayed.
Included with your purchase is just the power conditioner as pictured. Rack ears and the associated screws are not included, but both can be found and purchased separately online.
SkyFi Condition Notes:
The top of this unit suffers from some scratching from whatever was placed on top of it previously, as does the front panel. Also the right side rubber cover for the quick-release front cover is missing.
Neither of these affect operation, and neither would be a bother once you have this installed in your rack at a usual distance. However we're super conservative with our ratings and this is a 6/10:
"6/10 = Fair. Electronics may show one major scratch that's deep enough to show metal, or a slight dent on one of the surfaces. The piece will not have any major scratches on the front faceplate, but may have some nicks along the top front edge. Chrome and glass may show obvious pitting, but should not have any flakes. Transformer covers may have scratches. Silk-screening is separating from the glass in more than one area, and some lettering is worn off, but the glass itself is intact."
More from Furman:
The Furman F1000-UPS: battery backup is designed exclusively for audio/video professionals and home theater aficionados.
For decades, traditional audio/video components were simple analog devices designed to easily weather power outages of well over two seconds. Later, as computer and microprocessor based components gained in popularity, their extraordinary sensitivity to even a fraction of a second’s power loss was managed with traditional UPS (uninterruptible power supply) technology.
Unfortunately, these units were solely designed for the I.T. professional. Though they included many technologies and features appropriate to that application, they fell short for premium audio/video components. Though many of these manufacturers later recognized the ever emerging professional audio/video, broadcast, and home theater market, their lack of experience led merely to a re-tooled chassis. These hastily produced UPS devices lacked the technologies necessary to truly optimize protection, performance, and control for today’s audio video components.
The Furman F1000-UPS more than fills this void, and offers your system unparalleled battery back-up technology, created from the ground up to meet the exacting demands of the world’s most sensitive audio, video and control systems!
Typical UPS systems feature antiquated surge suppression technologies that can cause as much damage and annoying lock-ups as they attempt to prevent. Only Furman offers battery back-up with our road-proven SMP non-sacrificial, zero ground contamination surge suppression technology and EVS Extreme Voltage Shutdown. After all, the most robust battery can not function if the accompanying circuits are damaged. With Furman’s F1000-UPS, you can expect years of trouble free operation.
Though many control devices are relatively immune to moderate levels of AC line noise, today’s more sensitive devices (such as DLP projectors and line-level signal processors) certainly are not. High-definition technologies have pushed resolution to levels so extreme that virtually any AC noise capable of coupling with your system’s signal will distort, mask, or destroy the performance advantages we all strive so hard to capture and reproduce. Once again, the F1000-UPS is different. While other UPS devices feature AC line filters suitable for a I.T. closet, only Furman employs our exclusive Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT). This advanced noise filtering technology assures that today’s ultra-wide dynamic range is maintained as it must be – pristine. Remember, less AC noise equals greater content, greater resolution, and higher definition.
Programmability & Control
Audio/video systems can vary greatly in their size and components, and as such, flexibility is needed in determining how a battery backup solution should function under different circumstances. Because of this, Furman has provided open source RS-232 control over two independent AC outlet banks, with a wide range of control features to interface with an existing automation solution. Dual programmable IR control allows the unit to send a shut down command to remote components – no more expensive projector bulbs to replace in the event of a blackout.
* As with any battery back up system, the battery pack must be replaced periodically (typically every 2 years)
Typical Backup Components
Given the nature of battery backup technology, high-current audio and video components such as power amplifiers, powered subwoofers, and high-wattage displays are not recommended for use with the F1000-UPS. Not only will these components drain battery power quite rapidly, line impedance will be raised due to the F1000-UPS’s (or any) AVR and AC to DC inverter, which can induce current compression and noticeably diminish performance with high-current A/V equipment.
The following components are ideal for use with the F1000-UPS:
Digital Video Recorders
External Hard Drives
Digital Mixing Consoles
Lamp Based Video Displays
For power management of other components, Furman recommends Classic or Prestige Series Power Conditioners. For high-current components such as power amplifiers and powered subwoofers, solutions featuring Furman’s exclusive Power Factor Technology are ideal.
Approximate Run Time, 1500VA **
Satellite Receiver or Cable Box = 45 Minutes
Digital Mixing Console (16 channel) = 32 minutes
Control System + Media Server = 9 Minutes
DAW Computer + Digital I/O + External Hard Drive + 24” LCD Monitor = 4 minutes
** These run times should be used as a guideline only and are dependent on device and usage.
