Hauppauge, New York (PRWEB) September 19, 2011

Behlman Electronics Inc., a leading provider of standard, modified standard, COTS and custom power supplies, has received a second order for a system comprised of three HPRU1000 power supplies, a backplane that ties them together, and an EMI filter. This is then integrated by Behlman’s customer, into a computer system used on a major missile defense program. This system will be deployed around the globe in over twelve nations.

The Behlman HPRU is a Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) power supply, ruggedly built to withstand the rigors of combat operations. A front panel status indicator makes accurate operational assessment both rapid and simple. Current sharing and modular design enables hot-swapping in the field to ensure virtually failsafe combat readiness. Multiple units are field-configurable (N+1) to support a wide variety of applications, and a front panel handle/lever system facilitates rapid extraction and replacement without tools.

According to Ron Storm, Behlman’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, “The fact that a high-power ‘Line Replaceable Unit’ like our HPRU1000 has been designed to meet such stringent military power supply requirements as MIL-STD-1285, MIL-STD-461, MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD 1399, and MIL-STD-704, is evidence that these power supplies are also rugged and reliable enough to meet the requirements of even the most rigorous commercial and industrial applications.”

From 115/200 VAC, 3 phase, 47-440 Hz input power, a Behlman HPRU1000Q-6-EC-5693 can be configured to deliver 1000W of 5 V, 3.3 V, + 12 V and -12 V. Complete specifications can be found at http://www.behlman.com/cots.htm.

In addition to their use in missile defense systems, such Behlman hot-swappable power supplies are providing fail-safe performance in US Navy weapon control systems, nuclear power plant control systems and other critical military and commercial applications where it is essential that operations continue without interruption, even if a power supply becomes damaged and must be replaced.
