Behlman Adds CE-Marked AC Frequency Convertors

November 12, 2013. Behlman Electronics Inc. has introduced two new-power-factor corrected AC power sources/frequency converters. These carry the CE Mark, essential for users in member states of the EU and EFTA countries Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein, plus Turkey.

The Behlman PF1350 provides three fixed, selectable output frequencies of 50 Hz, 60 Hz and 400 Hz, with two voltage ranges: 0 to 135 VAC and 0 to 270 VAC. From local power inputs of 95 to 270 VAC, this unit delivers 1350 VA of clean, regulated AC power at 10 A maximum. It is suitable for export testing and operating equipment manufactured in a foreign country and will simulate any worldwide utility, aircraft, and shipboard power.

The Behlman PF1351 does everything the Model PF1350 does but also features a continuously variable output frequency range from 45 Hz to 500 Hz, and it can be controlled from the front panel or remotely using an optional RS-232 or IEEE-488 interface, and an optional 45-Hz to 1,000-Hz output frequency range is available.

Both the PF1350 and the PF1351 are compact 3.5” high bench-top units that easily and economically convert for rack mounting.

According to Behlman president Ron Storm, “We created the CE Mark PF1350 and CE Mark PF1351 frequency converters to provide exactly the power needed, virtually anywhere in the world. Our goal was to expand the utility of our very popular USA models, so that engineers and technicians everywhere can perform their mission-critical and essential industrial tasks more readily, with ultimate reliability.”
