BL1350 AC POWER SUPPLY
FREQUENCY CONVERTER / INVERTER

1350VA, AC Power Supply / Frequency Converter / Inverter in a 3.5"H Chassis

BL1350

Frequency Converter, switch mode power supply, 1350VA at 1U high

 

Behlman's BL1350 AC Power Supply / Frequency Converter / Inverter, requires just 3.5" of rack

height, and weighs as low as 45 pounds, yet it delivers 1350 VA of quality AC power. In the BL 1350, you'll find the quality features you expect from Behlman, fully adjustable frequency and voltage, total harmonic distortion of less then 0.5%, high efficiency, plus excellent line and load regulation.

There's also a unique overload protection system that folds back the voltage to maintain maximum rated current without output wave form distortion and analog remote control. For rack mounted or bench top power, no AC source combines small size, high efficiency and low cost like the Behlman BL Series. 


Features

  • 1350VA in a 3.5" chassis, some models under 45 pounds

  • Parallelable for additional power or for 3 phase output

  • Unique overload protection prevents output distortion

  • Remote DC programming for voltage and frequency

  • True RMS readout of voltage and current

  • Low cost without compromising features or performance

Note:1: 

Available models with motor testing option add -MT (See below).

Contact factory for additional options. 

Please note that Option MT includes all of the specifications of the standard BL Series plus the following to features to meet the requirements for motor testing:

  • Unique overload protection prevents output distortion
  • "Soft Start" allows starting motors in "locked rotor" condition by folding back the voltage and slowly increasing it as the motor starts to accelerate.
  • Capable of starting motors which normally require 140Amps locked rotor starting currents.
  • Capable of supplying a running current up to 14 Amps at 50% duty cycle.
