SurgeX Suit Triggers Furman Response

Publish date:

Furman Sound has responded to a complaint filed by New Frontier Electronics d/b/a SurgeX, rejecting its claims in U.S. Federal Court and filing a counter claim against New Frontier. New Frontier's complaint is in part for promoting MOV-based power conditioning products as Series Mode products.

SurgeX, citing the false advertising and promotion prong of Section 43(a) of the Lanham Act, is claiming that the Furman Series II line of products use MOVs (Metal Oxide Varistors) as the main surge suppression technology and that the promotion and marketing of these products as Series Mode is false, deceptive and/or misleading.

Furman purports that the words in question, "series mode," refer to a common electrical configuration and are not owned by any individual or organization. Furman's Series II line of products does employ this technology, said the company, however the technology in Series II units goes above and beyond typical series mode protection with a total package called SMP Plus.

All SurgeX power conditioning products incorporate advanced technology, referred to as Series Mode, to mitigate surge and transient energy without the use of any diversionary or sacrificial components such as MOVs.
