Hauppauge, New York, May 23, 2017 – Behlman Electronics, Inc., known for its leadership in providing power products for military, industrial, and commercial applications worldwide, has introduced a new, high-performance interface to three of its P-Series AC Power Sources. Called Option U, this high-performance interface includes USB, Ethernet, and RS-232 Interface using SCPI protocol. This option enables faster communication speed, programming the power supply remotely from greater distances, and compatibility with newer computers.

Behlman’s Option U high-performance interface is available on their Models P1352, P2002, and PF1352. The PF1352 is power factor corrected, and carries the CE Mark essential for users in member states of the EU and EFTA, including Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, plus Turkey.

According to Behlman President, Ron Storm, “Our P-Series AC Power Supplies/Frequency Converters have been continuously improved, by adding performance features requested by our customers around the world. In 2013, we added the CE Mark to our offerings, with the introduction of new Models PF1350, PF1351, and PF1352. Our goal was to expand the utility of our very popular USA models, so that engineers and technicians everywhere can perform their mission-critical and essential industrial tasks more readily, with ultimate reliability. Now with the addition of Option U, we provide more valuable interface enhancements that keep us on the leading edge of the latest AC Power technology.”

Model PF1352 is perhaps the most versatile in Behlman’s line of P-Series AC Power Sources. It provides PFC input, fully adjustable voltage and frequency, low-output THD, unique overload protection, high-efficiency, excellent line and load regulation. Remote programming via standard RS232, and now, with Option U, remote programming via RS232/USB/Ethernet or, using Option 1 IEEEE-488. Its CE Mark is evidence of its worldwide capabilities. Like all units in Behlman’s P-Series, it can be used on a table top, or mounted in a 19” rack.

Why An Ac Power Source/frequency Converter Is Essential.

During the development and testing of military, industrial and consumer products, if the product to be tested is plugged directly into any standard factory AC main, there is a possibility that the power being used could corrupt the test. This can affect the performance of the equipment being tested, causing its functionality to appear be on-spec, when it is off -spec, or off-spec when it is on-spec. Either way, such false test results can be costly due to the need for additional engineering to fix a non-problem, or worse, the cost of having to fix faulty units in the field, thus losing customer confidence. A regulated electronic AC power source/frequency converter can solve this and many other power quality issues, while providing additional testing flexibility.
