Hauppauge, NY. Behlman Electronics Inc., a provider of power products for military shipboard, airborne, and mobile programs as well as for industrial and commercial applications, has announced that its new CE marked BLC Series AC power sources provide either single- or three-phase output from 3,000 VA to 9,000 VA.
Behlman president Ron Storm said, “With over 39 AC power sources in our line, Behlman has earned an enviable reputation for having a broad line of AC power products that supply clean, regulated, highly efficient AC power for industrial product testing, precision avionic test and power conversion, ATE, bulk power, and motor generator replacement. Now, with the demand for such Behlman Power Supplies increasing worldwide, our talented engineers developed the new ultra-rugged BLC series with the EMC and Safety directives required by European standards.”
BLC Series AC power sources deliver low cost per VA, rugged construction, clean sine-wave output, high efficiency, and low harmonic distortion. A multi-pulse input transformer ensures low-input harmonic distortion and high power factor. Protection circuitry provides overtemperature and short-circuit protection, plus voltage fold-back that maintains undistorted waveforms during overloads.
Voltage and frequency adjustment, line-drop compensation, phase-angle adjustment, external sync and output on/off with remote power connection, and CE mark are standard. Optional features include fixed voltage and frequency, output transformers, analog remote-control interface, and extended frequency range up to 1,000 Hz.
Valuable for those involved with motor testing, Behlman BLC Series power sources offer a motor test option that can soft-start motors, pumps, and compressors. This eliminates both the need for higher power devices, and the bothersome and time-consuming task of clamping the motor to the test bench to prevent it from falling.
Behlman BLC series power supplies are 19-inch rack mounted units.
