Railroad AC Signal Source, Inverters, Frequency Converters,
as well as onboard custom DC-DC and AC-DC system power supplies.

Behlman's has been a leading designer and manufacturer of AC power supply, AC power source, and Frequency Converter technology since 1952.

The progression to Railroad Signal Sources was a natural expansion of our main product line of Frequency Converters, AC power sources, and AC power supplies. For over 50 years Behlman has delivered rugged, efficient, reliable power systems from a few watts to over 100,000 VA. Behlman's extensive experience with Military and high end industrial customers makes it possible to design and manufacture products that can perform in the harsh railroad environment. Behlman's power supplies are available AC to AC, DC to AC, as well as AC to DC and DC to DC.

 

Behlman has a complete line of Rail Road signal sources, which are available with the following features:

  • Input and Output Surge Suppression

  • Short Circuit Protection with Automatic Recovery

  • Full Input and Output Isolation

  • Input/Output Redundancy

  • Input and or Output Transfer Switch

  • Extended Temperature Range

  • AAR Terminals

  • Alarms and Scada contacts

Most units are available with other input voltages / frequencies,
and
other output voltages / frequencies other than specified below.

Please contact factory to discuss your requirements.
