These Behlman Power Supplies now provide easier and more capable remote programming and operation.

Behlman PF1352: AC power from 95-270 VAC input. Output up to 1350 VA.

With our addition of USB, Ethernet and RS-232 interfaces along with an SCPI command set, each of these Behlman Power Supplies now provides easier and more capable remote programming and operation.

Behlman Electronics Inc., known for its leadership in providing power products for military shipboard, airborne and mobile programs, as well as for industrial and commercial applications, has announced a significant upgrade in the interface capabilities of its programmable AC power supplies.

As a standard feature, Behlman’s P1352, P2002, PF1352 Power Supplies and the PAC2000 Controller will now provide SCPI compliant remote control through Ethernet, USB and RS-232 interfaces.

SCPI, (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments), provides an easy-to-understand, universal method for controlling and retrieving information from a wide variety of electronic test equipment. Many test systems use SCPI programming to achieve complete control of the product’s performance and characteristics. These features will allow the customer to easily connect, configure, monitor and control AC sources on the test bench or in remote locations, for industrial applications.

New computer software has been developed to take advantage of the new capabilities. Using Behlman Remote Interface Software, the user can define lists for trigger events, as well as monitor and set aspects of the power supply. When using the Ethernet interface, a web client is also available that will provide the same functionality as the Remote Interface Software.

The power supply software is now also field upgradable, allowing future updates to be completed without factory service being required.

According to Behlman president Ron Storm, “Behlman’s programmable P1352, P2002, PF1352 Power Supplies and the PAC2000 Controller have been used extensively for industrial product testing, precision avionics test, power conversion and ATE (Automatic Test Equipment). With the addition of our USB, Ethernet and RS-232 interfaces along with an SCPI command set, each of these Behlman Power Supplies now provides easier and more capable remote programming and operation.”
