The Future Demands Flexibility - BE1-FLEX


Basler Electric, a leading designer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art power control and protection devices, has unveiled the BE1-FLEX, a groundbreaking protective relay platform. The latest innovation in Basler’s BE1 family of digital protection devices, the BE1-FLEX was designed to be the most versatile and easy to use protective relay in the industry.

As the electrical power industry, and the world, continues to change at an exponential rate, the BE1-FLEX is vastly customizable both in the factory and in the field. Built on a platform with interchangeable electronics, the BE1-FLEX can be adapted to solve an almost infinite number of future protection challenges without ever having to be removed from its installation.

In addition to its flexibility, Basler engineers designed the BE1-FLEX with simplicity at its core. A large, color touchscreen with pinch and zoom capability, along with easy programming and screen customizations help the BE1-FLEX go from box to protection in minutes. “While other companies offer different relays for different purposes, we developed a single relay for multiple purposes and we won’t make you go to school to learn how to use it”, said Seth Nelson, Product Line Manager for Basler’s protection division. “Our platform puts the power in the hands of the user to configure the device exactly as needed, nothing more and nothing less.”

The BE1-FLEX is another first in a long line of innovations from Basler Electric, which includes the first solid-state voltage regulator in 1959 and the first solid-state protective relay in 1969. Please visit for more details.
