Furman The CN-3600 SE intelligent sequential power conditioners recently provided reliable power control to the Olympic Sports Center in China, a site 15 times the size of Yankee Stadium.
$ 4.7million (CN ¥ 30million) audio installation made by distributor and integrator EZ Pro. The project was completed in record time for the 14th China National Games held in September 2021.
According to EZ Pro, the complex spans 9,328,726 square feet. It also includes three large spaces: a main stadium with 60,000 seats, a gymnasium with 18,000 seats and an aquatic theater with 4,000 seats.
The company chose the Furman CN-3600 SE intelligent sequential power conditioners because they are designed for commercial A / V installations in 220V-240V regions. The conditioners combine robust control capabilities through SmartSequencing technology.
The power conditioners feature advanced AC protection, AC noise filtration, and optional compatibility with the BlueBOLT remote power and power management platform. These complex A / V systems can be safely powered with the push of a button or turn of the key, even by non-technical personnel.

Two-way communications from Smart Sequencings ensure that multi-zone electronic systems are powered safely and reliably from a single point of control across an entire site. Furman products can also be connected via a current loop at distances of over 1000 feet with backward compatibility with legacy Furman sequencers.
In addition, the CN-3600 SE can also be programmed and monitored from various devices. These include smartphones, tablets or any other web enabled device via Telnet, direct HTTP connection or the remote power and power management platform hosted by Panamax / Furman BlueBOLT.
Installation of Furman CN-3600 SE conditioners
“Our mission was to create a world-class audio system that is advanced, stable, cost-effective and flexible,” said Jiang Yongjun, technical director of EZ Pro’s office in Xi’an.
Yongjun added that the main concern is reliability. Therefore, the CN3600 SE conditioners were used to allow the power to be started or stopped according to the defined sequence with an adjustable delay time.
“We can effectively manage and control the entire audio system to avoid human error operations and reduce the impact of instantaneous switching on the power supply network to ensure stable operation of the sound system,” he continued.
He further revealed that the series multi-stage protection technology and linear filtration technology provide surge and spike protection and reduce AC noise.
“With the support of Furman support staff, the audio system works stably with outstanding performance,” Yongjun concluded.
Add the final touches
To ensure reliability and no audio disturbance in the event of a single point failure, EZ Pro has implemented redundancy throughout the system.
In addition, Powersoft amplifiers have been selected for DSP processing. Powersoft’s ArmoníaPlus software was also used with a combination of equipment from EAW, Allen & Heath and Symetrix.
“At nearly 10 million square feet, this is one of the largest commercial AV technology facilities we have encountered overseas,” added Horacio Morales, director of international sales for Nortek Control.
“We salute the technicians and engineers at EZ Pro for bringing this incredible design and installation to such a prestigious location in such a short time. What a great team they have, and we are delighted to be working with them in the region, ”concluded Morales.
