Behlman announces the reconfigured Open VPX VITA 62 compatible 3U VPXtra™ 500M1 Power Supply, and the VPXtra™ Reconfiguration Program.



3U Open VPX VITA 62 compatible High-power Multi-output Power Supply

Working within its new VPXtra™ Reconfiguration Program, Behlman has modified the VPXtra™ 500M to create the new VPXtra™500M1, with 80 amps of 5 VDC output. This unit, in conjunction with the standard VPXtra™ 500M, can supply 120 Amps of 5 VDC along with the customer-required 12 VDC and 3.3 VDC.

  • Open VPX VITA 62 compliant
  • Wide input range
  • High-power DC output
  • Efficiency of 90% typical
  • Conduction cooled at card edge

The Behlman VPXtra™ 500M1 COTS DC to DC power supply is a rugged, highly reliable, conduction cooled, switch mode unit built for high-end industrial and military applications. It delivers 460 Watts of DC power via six outputs. The main outputs can be paralleled for higher power.

VPXtra™ 500M1 can accept a 28 VDC input, IAW MIL-STD-704, and can supply a high-power DC output at various power levels. This power supply has no minimum load requirement and has overvoltage and short circuit protection, as well as over current and thermal protection. The power supply is designed to support the rigors of mission critical airborne, shipboard, vehicle and mobile applications.

Designed and manufactured with Xtra-Cooling™, Xtra-Reliable™ Design, and Xtra-Rugged™ Construction.

The Behlman VPXtra™ Reconfiguration Program addresses the needs of system designers for non-standard features on VITA 62 compatible VPX power supplies that can vary significantly from system to system. Variables can run from different power levels of the standard voltages, mechanical configurations, such as connectors, user-defined pins, and general interfaces, to EMI filtering and hold-up requirements, transient and lightning protection, and more.

Behlman now invites all system designer to request additional system-specific VPXtra™ reconfigurations, without the cost of full-custom development.
