Behlman Power Supplies Selected by Major Manufacturer of Nuclear Power Plant Reactor Control Systems to Meet Fail-Safe Requirements

Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) March 12, 2012

Behlman Electronics Inc., known for its leadership in power products for industrial, commercial and military applications, has been selected by a major manufacturer of nuclear reactor control systems to provide the Behlman SSCI-890 Power Supply for installation at a nuclear power plant in South America.

The Behlman SSCI-890 Power Supply has three plug-in Line Replaceable Units (LRU). The two outside LRUs are identical N+1 redundant, hot-swappable power modules, each capable of supplying full system power. This assures that the system will continue in full operation even while a power unit is being changed. The center LRU is the system controller.

According to Ronald Storm, Behlman Vice President of Sales and Marketing, We are pleased to be able to support this customers expansion by filling their repeat orders in a timely manner. With so many of our SSCI-890 Power Supplies in operation around the world over the past five years, the fact that we have never had even one returned for repair is evidence of their extreme reliability.

About the Behlman SSCI-890 Power Supply.

Built on a Behlman COTS design for mission-critical power supplies used in US Navy fire control weapon systems, Behlman engineers have produced a power supply optimized to meet the performance and safety challenges experienced in the operation of Nuclear Reactors.

Each 19-inch, 3U rack mountable unit contains two complete power units with a controller unit in the center.

In addition to being N+1 redundant and hot swappable, Behlmans SSCI-890 Power Supply features current sharing, and each of the identical power units has short circuit and over current protection, power factor correction, current limiting, load and line regulation, plus front panel indicators for status of AC and DC. The LRU Control unit contains an integral battery, charger and timing control to support system shut down during AC brownout conditions.

Input is 90-240 VAC, single phase at 47-63 Hz. Logic power output is 5 VDC @100A, adjustable +/- 10%; memory power output is 5 VDC @3 A, adjustable +/- 10%. The unit also has outputs at +12 VDC and -12 VDC @ 1.5 A.
