HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., 5 Feb. 2016. Behlman Electronics Inc. in Hauppauge, N.Y., is introducing the FC5003-C1-115-400 and BLX3X500C-8-5362 commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) frequency converters for critical avionics and related applications.

The power electronics device has turn-key performance that simplifies operation for military, industrial, and commercial 400 Hz power requirements.

The Behlman FC5003 frequency converter is a turn-key solution for converting 120/208 volts AC, 3-phase 47-63 Hz into clean, regulated 115/200-volt AC 3-phase, 400 Hz power. It originally was designed to power military munitions test and programming systems used with precision-guided smart weapons, such as bombs and missiles.

Now this AC frequency converter is available for any 3-phase, 400-Hz industrial, commercial, or military requirement. It supplies 6000 VA, 16 Amps per phase, has protective circuitry to assure long-term reliable testing, and comes with two DMMs for True RMS Volts and Amps. A pre-wired 6-foot line cord with an NEMA L21-30P-type plug and an FSL4-FR female receptacle on the rear panel is standard.

The Behlman BL3X500C-8-5632 for lower power applications converts 115 or 230 volts AC, single-phase 47-63 Hz into clean, regulated, 115/200-volt AC, 3-phase, 400 Hz at 1500 VA, 4.3 Amps per phase. This unit has all the same protection as the higher power FC5003. It comes with a prewired 9.8 foot line cord with an NEMA L5-30-type plug and an FSL4-FR female receptacle on the rear panel.

A composite transit case with aluminum frame and an isolation system is available for both models. For more information contact Behlman online at www.behlman.com.
