AC POWER SUPPLY
FREQUENCY CONVERTER / INVERTER



BL HP SERIES
High Power AC Power Supplies / Frequency Converters / Inverters without the High Price

High power Frequency Converter, AC power supply from 45Hz to 1000Hz

Behlman's high power, AC Power Sources / Frequency Converters / Inverters, combine the smooth, clean power of a linear supply with the compact design of a switching power supply. They're about one-third the size and half the cost of other AC Sources. All models come standard with variable voltage and frequency, external sync and 0-10 Vdc remote control, optional IEEE488 or RS232 interface for computer controlled. LabWindows and LabView  drives available. Small size, quiet operation and high efficiency make the high power BL Series ideal choices for precision avionics, ATE and industrial products testing requirements.


Features

  • Compact and rack mountable, 67% smaller than competitive units
  • Low cost per VA
  • Computer controlled waveform switching delivers smooth, efficient power
  • Multi-pulse input transformer offers low harmonic distortion
  • Available with an IEEE488/RS232 interface
  • LabWindows compatible
  • LabView compatible

Protective Circuits

Input Protection: Fast acting main circuit breaker
Constant Current Mode: Overload automatically causes voltage foldback to provide maximum current without distorting output waveform
Thermal Protection: Internal temperature sensor prevent heat damage
Short Circuit Protection: Short circuit overload electronically latches output open to protect load. Power restored by cycling circuit breaker

Control Inputs

External Synch: Synchronizes AC output with external input
Optional:

IEEE/RS232 interface for remote programming of output voltage and frequency

Front Panel Control

Please note that Option MT includes all of the specifications of the standard BLHP Series plus the following to features to meet the requirements for motor testing:

  • Overload protection prevents output distortion to drive motors with pure sinewave, even during start up.
  • "Soft Start" allows starting motors in "locked rotor" condition by folding back the voltage and slowly increasing it as the motor starts to accelerate.
  • Capable of starting motors which normally require 140Amps locked rotor starting currents.
