Behlman BL1500 Down-Hole Power Supply Production Has Been Ramped Up to Meet the Growing Need for Oil Field Drilling and Logging Now Driven by the High Cost of Oil

Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) August 29, 2011

Behlman Electronics Inc. known in the oil industry for its ultra-reliable power supplies that enable companies to power AC equipment five miles down-hole in even the most adverse field conditions, has announced that additional orders have been received for their BL1500 and more than 1,500 of these units have been deployed worldwide.


According to Ron Storm, Behlmans Vice President of sales and marketing, It is a testimony to our US engineering commitment, that Behlman has been able to design and manufacture power sources so highly reliable and rugged that they have survived the punishment of oil exploration environments and conditions for more than a decade. The follow-on orders we have recently received for the Behlman BL1500 prove that when reliable power must be delivered fast, far and deep, our customers know that Behlman is the go-to company.


Behlmans BL1500 unit is powered from 115 VAC, 47-63 Hz and provides two ranges of high-voltage AC at 60 Hz. Units can be stacked for increased power. Protective circuits include input, short circuit, constant current and thermal protection. BL1500 power supplies have an RS 485 interface, operate from 32 to 131 degrees F (0 to 55 degrees C), and have a high-strength 19-inch rack mount chassis 3.5 high x 21.5 deep (48.25 cm wide x 7.874 cm high x 54.61 deep D).


Because Behlman designs and manufactures a very broad line of power products for diverse industrial, commercial and military applications, it can readily help oil industry companies meet their power needs during every phase of operations, from drilling to evaluation, completion and intervention.


Behlmans COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) products, widely used by the US military, also enable its industrial customers to enjoy custom-modified power solutions for virtually any application, without the high cost of engineering from scratch.
