Behlman Introduces Two New VPXtra™ 3U OpenVPX Power Products

Share Article

800 W output 3-phase AC-DC, plus 50 millisecond energy storage now enable system designers to meet MIL-STD704…and more.

Behlman VPXtra™ 800A is a 3U Open VPX VITA 62 compatible high-power AC-DC power supply. It is designed and built for essential high-end military, commercial and industrial applications.

These can support a new branch of the Behlman Reconfiguration Program.

Behlman Electronics Inc., is known for providing extra-value COTS power products for mission-critical military and commercial shipboard, airborne, land and mobile programs, as well as for industrial power solutions. Their latest pair of power solutions make it possible for system designers to have both 800 W output available, and energy storage for 50 milliseconds when needed for critical MIL-STD-704 performance.

Behlman VPXtra™ 800A is a 3U, Open VPX, VITA 62 compatible high-power AC-DC power supply.
This power solution is a rugged, highly reliable, conduction cooled, switch-mode unit designed and built for essential high-end military, commercial and industrial applications. It accepts 115/200 VAC, 3-phase input IAW MIL-STD-704F, and provides 28 VDC output with a 3.3 VDC auxiliary, without a minimum load requirement. Protection from overvoltage, short circuits, over current and thermal overload is standard.

Behlman VPXtra™ HU700HV Hold-Up Card is a compatible 3U Open VPX VITA 62 unit.
This companion power solution works in conjunction with the Behlman VPXtra™ 800A, to hold-up 650 Watts of DC power for 50 milliseconds, to meet the input power transient specifications of MIL-STD-704 (A to F).

Spec sheets for the Behlman VPXtra™ 800A Power Supply and VPXtra™ HU700HV Hold-Up Card are instantly available at the following links:

The Behlman VPXtra™ 800A Power Supply, and the Behlman VPXtra™ HU700HV Hold-Up Card, are designed and manufactured with Behlman’s trademarked Xtra-Cooling™, Xtra-Reliable Design™, and Xtra-rugged™ Construction, to ensure long, trouble-free service, and precise VPXtra™ compatibility.

According to Behlman President, Ron Storm, “Although the VPXtra™ 800A Power Supply, and its companion VPXtra™ HU700HV Hold-Up Card, are unique designs not born from our highly successful VPXtra™ Reconfiguration Program, they can be a new foundation on which to build another branch of that program. Therefore, I invite design engineers to contact Behlman to explore how the VPXtra™ 800A Power Supply might be reconfigured to meet their own special needs, without the high cost of custom development. With sixteen 3U and 6U VPXtra™ Power Products already in Behlman’s COTS product line, reconfiguration to meet even newly emerging requirements is readily available.”
