This may be the VPX industrys highest-power 6U front-end power module.
Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) February 24, 2014
Behlman Electronics Inc., known for its break-though leadership in VPXtra power products for military, industrial, and commercial applications, has introduced the VPXtra1500CS Three-phase AC-to-DC COTS power supply.
In late 2012, Behlman raised the VPX power bar to an unprecedented 1000 Watts with two 6U Open VPX VITA 62 Compliant DC-to-DC COTS power supplies: VPXtra 1000CD (Dual-output) and VPXtra1000CM (Multi-output).
Now, with the introduction of the new Behlman VPXtra 1500CS, VPX design engineers can obtain a DC output from a three-phase AC source, to support design initiatives requiring power factor correction and input current harmonic reduction. Although initially conceived to power Behlmans VPXtra1000CD and VPXtra1000CM DC-to-DC power supplies, VPXtra 1500CS can also be used to power devices from other manufacturers having similar wide-range DC inputs.
VPXtra 1500CS is a rugged, highly reliable, conduction-cooled, switch mode unit built for high-end industrial and military applications. It accepts 115/200 VAC, 3-phase input, IAW MIL-STD-704, and delivers 1500 Watts of 33 VDC power. Input current complies with CE101 and MIL-STD-1399. This front-end module is designed and manufactured using Behlmans outstanding Xtra-Cooling, Xtra-Rugged Construction and Xtra-High Reliability. It has no minimum load requirement and has short circuit protection, as well as over-voltage and thermal protection.
According to Behlman President, Ron Storm, When we introduced the VPXtra 1000CD and VPXtra 1000CM power supplies, we knew that the VPX industry would benefit greatly from having a reliable front-end module that would deliver DC power from 115/200 VAC, 3-phase inputs. It took Behlman a year to perfect the solution in the form of the VPXtra 1500CS, but the additional capability and versatility provided by this unit will prove to be well worth the effort.
VPXtra 1500CS features include:
