Behlman Electronics Inc., known for its leadership in power products for military, industrial, and commercial applications, has developed a new engineering standard that supports the design, manufacturing, operation and successful cooling of high-density 6U VPX-compliant power supplies capable of delivering up to 1000 watts. These units are OpenVPX Vita 62 compliant, designed to power OpenVPX modules, deliver a typical efficiency of 90%, and are conduction cooled at the card edge.

The Behlman VPXtra 1000CD is a dual output DC-DC COTS power supply that accepts wide range 28 VDC input and delivers up to 1000 watts of clean, regulated 12 VDC power and 3.3 VDC auxiliary power.

The Behlman VPXtra 1000CM is a multi-output DC-DC COTS power supply that accepts wide range 28 VDC input and delivers up to 600 watts of clean, regulated 12 VDC and 5 VDC power plus 3.3, -12, and +12 VDC auxiliary power.

According to Behlman President, Ron Storm, “To achieve the extremely high power density needed to deliver this clean, regulated DC power within the confines of a 6U VPX card, required that Behlman engineers develop a new standard for VPX power supply design. Incorporating our Card Edge Conduction Xtra-Cooling Technology, Xtra-Reliable Design and Xtra-Rugged Construction, moves Behlman right into the forefront of VPX power solutions. Making the Behlman VPXtra Power Supplies a Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) product further increases their economy and versatility and enables us to deliver very quickly.”


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. For more information about VPX visit
