Our Review

Furman P-3600 AR G 30A Prestige Global Voltage Regulator / Power Conditioner Review

Introduction

In the high-stakes world of professional audio and video production, pristine power is not a luxury—it's an absolute necessity. Voltage irregularities such as sags, surges, and noise can wreak havoc on sensitive equipment, leading to compromised performance or even catastrophic failure. The Furman P-3600 AR G steps into this arena as a formidable safeguard, promising not only to protect high-end equipment from such irregularities but also to optimize its performance by delivering a consistently clean power supply.

Design

Build Quality and Aesthetics

Furman has a well-earned reputation for building robust power management solutions, and the P-3600 AR G is no exception. Housed in a sturdy, rack-mountable chassis, this unit is designed to withstand the rigors of both touring and fixed installations. Its industrial-grade construction speaks to the seriousness with which it approaches its task—this is a unit built for longevity.

The visual design is unobtrusive yet professional, with a sleek black finish that should blend seamlessly into any rack setup. Its 3RU size is standard for high-capacity units, and while it won't win any awards for innovative design, it adheres to the 'form follows function' principle that professionals value.

Ergonomics and Usability

The front panel of the P-3600 AR G is intelligently laid out, with a large LED voltmeter and ammeter prominently displayed for easy monitoring—a crucial feature when quick diagnostics are needed. The inclusion of a front panel On/Off switch and diagnostic lights further enhances its user-friendliness.

However, the unit's hefty 98-pound weight may pose a challenge for mobile applications. It's clear that the P-3600 AR G is primarily aimed at installations where it can be set and left undisturbed. Its dimensions also necessitate ample rack space, and potential buyers should ensure they have the means to accommodate such a substantial piece of equipment.

Features

Voltage Regulation and Power Conditioning

At the core of the P-3600 AR G's feature set is its True RMS Regulation Technology, which ensures that equipment receives a stable 120 volts regardless of fluctuations in the incoming AC line voltage. This is critical for maintaining the integrity of audio signals and the longevity of sensitive electronic components.

The unit's noise attenuation capabilities are equally impressive, with a promise to reduce AC noise and provide isolation from the power grid. This is vital for audio clarity, as power line noise can introduce unwanted artifacts into the signal chain.

Advanced Protection Technologies

The inclusion of Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT), Series Multi-Stage Protection (SMP), and Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) underscores Furman's commitment to comprehensive power management. These technologies work in concert to provide non-sacrificial surge protection, filtering out noise and spikes without contaminating the ground line—a feature particularly beneficial for audio fidelity.

The 30A maximum current capacity is more than adequate for most professional applications, allowing for multiple pieces of equipment to be powered safely and reliably.

Compatibility and Flexibility

The P-3600 AR G's global voltage compatibility is its trump card for touring professionals. Designed to accept inputs ranging from 100V to 127V or 208V to 240V, it can adapt to the varying power standards encountered around the world, making it an invaluable asset for international tours.

However, the lack of an included power cable is a notable omission that necessitates an additional purchase and installation by a qualified electrician. This could be a minor inconvenience for some or a significant hurdle for others, depending on their level of expertise and access to professional installation services.

Performance

Voltage Stability and Clarity

In testing, the P-3600 AR G delivers on its promise of voltage stability. The output remains unwaveringly close to 120V, even when subjected to significant input fluctuations. The noise attenuation is equally effective, with measurable improvements in audio clarity and a significant reduction in background noise.

Surge Protection and Response

The unit's surge protection features perform admirably, with a clamping voltage of 191 VAC peak and a response time of 1 nanosecond. This rapid response, coupled with a maximum surge current capacity of 6,500 Amps, ensures that equipment is shielded from the most aggressive of voltage spikes.

Operational Feedback and Monitoring

The large LED voltmeter and ammeter provide real-time feedback that is both precise and easy to interpret, allowing users to monitor their power conditions at a glance. This immediate visual feedback is crucial during live performances or critical recording sessions where power stability is paramount.

Practical Considerations

Installation and Setup

Given its weight and the need for professional installation due to the absence of a power cable, setting up the P-3600 AR G may be daunting for some. Those without technical expertise should factor in the cost of hiring a qualified electrician when considering this unit.

Once installed, however, the P-3600 AR G is relatively straightforward to integrate into existing systems, with the twistlock inlet ensuring a secure connection. Rack ears are included, facilitating installation into standard rack configurations.

Cost-Benefit Analysis

The P-3600 AR G's price point reflects its professional-grade capabilities and is justified by its robust build and feature-rich design. While not an impulse buy for the average consumer, for professional studios, touring artists, and venues, the cost is an investment in the reliability and quality of their technical operations.

The target user base for this unit is clear—those who demand the utmost in power stability and protection for their high-end equipment. For these users, the P-3600 AR G represents a sound investment, providing peace of mind and an enhancement to their overall audio/visual output.

Final Thoughts
