The PL-8II utilizes Furman's revolutionary Series Mode Protection (SMP) circuit and Linear Filter Technology (LiFT) comprise what might be the world's most advanced and comprehensive transient voltage surge suppressor. You've spent thousands on your gear, and the PL-8II is a very affordable way to protect your investment.
Furman PL-8 II Power Conditioner at a Glance:
Essential insurance for your electronic gear!
Furman has improved upon its already trusted line with the PL-8 II Power Conditioner. With 8 back-panel outlets and 1 front outlet and a 15-amp rating with a built-in circuit breaker, you can connect a rack full of gear and rest assured that no damaging voltage spikes or dirty power will reach your equipment.
Series Mode Protection means no down time!
Furman's PL-8 II Power Conditioner features maintenance-free SMP surge suppression that virtually eliminates service calls. Traditional surge suppression circuits "sacrifice" themselves when exposed to multiple transient voltage spikes, requiring replacement or repair of your surge suppressor. Not so with SMP. With Furman's SMP, damaging transient voltages are safely absorbed, clamped and dissipated. In cases of extreme transient voltages the PL-8 II safely shuts itself, and everything connected to it, down. No sacrificed parts, no service calls, no down time.
The PL-8 II's unparalleled clamping voltage doesn't come at the expense of safety! While other designs offer clamping voltages that are well above 300VAC peak, (far beyond accepted professional standards), Furman'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 the PL-8 II contains Furman's trusted over-voltage circuitry to protect against accidental connections to 208 or 240VAC, by shutting off the incoming power until the over voltage condition is corrected.
Linear Filtering Technology eliminates AC line noise
The PL-8 II employs Furman's real-world tested Linear Filtering Technology - LiFT - That takes a realistic approach to line noise and "dirty" AC power. LiFT ensures optimal performance through linear filtering and no leakage to ground. Traditional AC conditioners could actually harm audio and video performance more than they help, often adding more than 10 dB of noise to the incoming AC line! The PL-8 II also guarantees zero leakage of AC power to ground.

Don't learn the hard way!
by Jon from NYAll I wanted to do is record some DI bass in my new studio. I never got the chance. As I plugged in to my Presonus, I heard a loud pop through the monitors. The channel I plugged into made horrible... read more [+] noises for a few seconds then fizzled away leaving no signal...except noise and crackling. As it turns out, the expensive "surge protector" strip I had my gear plugged into wasn't from a reputable manufacturer, and the grounding pin was merely for show! Luckily Presonus has an excellent repair policy. Immediately, I came to Sweetwater and ordered a PL-8 II! Things could have been much worse (this situation has killed people in the past). Thanks to Furman this won't happen again. It should be law to own one as it is simply dangerous not to have one! close [-]
