AC power sources can be customised in variety of ways

An options list has been published by distributor Powerstax which illustrates how Behlman Electronics’ fifteen BL High-Power Series AC Power Sources/Frequency Converters can be selectively customised in many ways, without the typically high cost of engineering a bespoke power supply.

According to Tim Worley, CEO of Powerstax, “Since a recent cost reduction of the Behlman BL High-Power Series AC Power Sources, the demand for a number of options became more evident. The V and F options, for fixed output voltage and fixed output frequency, became so popular that their cost was also reduced. A chart showing 13 options is now available on each of the BL Series specification sheets to help engineers customise these power sources to better meet their needs.”

Behlman’s BL High-Power Series AC Power Sources supply clean, regulated ACpower in a compact design at competitive prices.

The BL High-PowerSeries with Options V and F are available with either single- or three-phase output in a wide range of power, from 1KVA to 20KVA.

Inputs are any worldwide three-phase mains power with some models available with single-phase input.

The power sources deliver excellent line and load regulation, high efficiency, and low harmonic distortion.

A multi-pulse input transformer offers low-input harmonic distortion and high power factor as required by MIL-STD-1399.

Protection circuitry provides over-temperature and short-circuit protection, as well as voltage fold-back during overloads, to maintain undistorted waveforms.

Line drop compensation, phase angle adjust, output on/off, and 0-10V analogue control come standard.

Options include remote interfaces (RS-232 or IEEE-488) for setting and monitoring a motor test option that has the capability to soft-start motors, pumps and compressors, thereby eliminating the need for higher-power devices.

Small size,quiet operation, and high efficiency make the BL High-PowerSeries with options V and F ideal for industrial product testing, precision avionic test and power conversion,ATE, bulk power, and motor generator replacement.

Other models are available with variable voltage and frequency, using ten-turn potentiometers or remote interfaces (Analogue, RS-232 or IEEE-488).
