Ultra-reliable power supplies enable customers to power AC equipment five miles down-hole in even the most adverse field conditions


BEHLMAN Hauppauge, New York, March 13, 2006— Behlman Electronics Inc., known for its leadership in providing power products for industrial, commercial and military applications, has increased production of its BL1500 AC Power Supply to meet the growing demand for ultra-reliable down-hole systems throughout the oil and gas exploration industry.

The Behlman BL1500 is an AC source that delivers 0-700 or 0-1400 volts of clean, regulated AC at the output, to enable field crews to power down-hole tools, motors and sensors up to five miles from the power source. Its ruggedized design enables the BL1500 to perform reliably in even the most punishing oil and gas exploration environments.

Behlman BL1500 Power Supplies have a number of unique features, including master/slave capabilities that can parallel up to three units for higher power requirements. Any of the three units can be designated as the master, and units can be synchronized to an external input. The BL1500 features protective circuits for input, constant current, short-circuit and temperature, and provides adjustable voltage and current limit, dual range output, remote control via RS-485 and alarms.

Behlman recently received a major reorder for a customized version of the BL1500, from a customer that expects demand for down-hole power supplies to be strong at least through the year 2010. “This re-order contract confirms that the BL1500 is rugged and reliable enough to meet the rigors of the industry, while also showing how Behlman is able to adapt or reconfigure the BL1500 to meet the specific requirements of anyone in the industry,” said Behlman Vice President of Sales and Marketing Ron Storm.
