VPX Series

VPX Power Supply, VITA 62 compliant, 3U and 6U

Behlman Electronics, Inc. has developed a new engineering standard, VPXtra™ that supports the design, manufacture, operation and cooling of high-density COTS DC-DC power supplies and a COTS AC-DC front end module.

Behlman VPX power supplies are available in 3U and 6U, all units are OpenVPX, Vita 62 compliant with a wide input range and typical efficiency of 90%.

The OpenVPX™ standard has been defined by the VITA (VME International Trade Association) to help establish commonality and interoperability in electronic module and platform design for defense and industrial applications. Behlman is a member of VITA and serves on a number of the power supply committees.

Behlman VPXtra™ series COTS power supplies are rugged, reliable, conduction cooled, switch mode units built for high-end industrial and military mission critical applications including airborne, shipboard, ground and mobile.


With over 55 years experience in the design and manufacturing of critical electronic equipment in its "World Class" facility, Behlman is a key resource for precision power supplies. Behlman produces power supplies for military,

industrial and commercial applications.

Innovative engineering skills allow Behlman to tailor its wide range of designs to specific customer requirements. Behlman, in conjunction with its commercial division, can save you money by using COTS.
