HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., 9 Dec. 2015. Behlman Electronics Inc. in Hauppauge, N.Y., is introducing a 6U OpenVPX power supply called the VPXtra 1000CM-IQ for communication, measurement, and control functions in military and government applications.

The intelligent VITA 62-compliant, embedded computing power supply delivers 700 Watts of DC power via five outputs. It can use input power ranging from 18 to 36 volts DC to operate in variable conditions.

VPX embedded computing system designers can have 12 volts DC at 40 amps; 5 volts DC at 24 amps; 3.3 volts DC at 15 amps; -12 volts DC at 2 amps, and +12 volts DC at 1 amp. In addition, the 12 volts DC output can be paralleled.

Other features include low noise and ripple; input-output isolation; over-current, over-voltage and over-temperature protection; load regulation; high power density; and 90 percent typical efficiency.

The intelligence built into VPXtra 1000CM-IQ power supplies enable VPX system designers to create compact systems with few additional components. The device can monitor and report all output voltages; output current; input voltage; input current; and temperature.

It also supports ANSI/VITA 46 signals for geographical addressing, non-volatile memory read only (NVMRO) and SYSRESET. Also included are user-adjustable warning and fault levels for voltage, current, and temperature; inventory management information such as part numbers, serial numbers, and revision status; SMBALERT signal to alert system controller of a power supply status change; user storage memory for settings and information; and extensive PMBus command set and status registers support.

A two-output, 1000 Watt Behlman Intelligent VPXtra1000CD-IQ power supply, also is available. For more information contact Behlman online at www.behlman.com.
