Heavy duty 24V DC stainless steel aircraft start unit designed for use in harsh or saline environments and fitted with solid state voltmeter and robust push/pull isolator.
In continuous production for more than 20 years and in military use worldwide, this proven aircraft start unit uses a tough, corrosion resistant, all stainless steel case reinforced for harsh operations in remote and saline environments. The GPU 2400 is designed to take the heavy abuse that occurs with frequent transportation by road or air and its flush sides and buttressed full-length handle prevent snagging in confined spaces.
A heavy-duty push/pull isolator switch with replaceable copper contacts ensures maximum power transfer with minimum voltage drop. The lockable ‘R’ clip ensures the aircraft start unit is cleared for air transportation.
This aircraft start unit is designed to be carried on board for emergency power or turbine starting and is fitted with dual 12V DC automatic 3-stage internal chargers for maximum cell longevity. Suitable for starting all APUs and medium size free turbines.
The GPU 2400 is fitted with a solid state voltmeter to monitor battery voltage and is also supplied with a Nato lead set, charge lead and heavy-duty canvas protective jacket.
Also available are the Powervamp GPU Fast Chargers, designed to re–charge the GPU 1700, GPU 1700 Twin, GPU 2400 and GPU 2400 Twin units quickly and safely whilst also optimising the batteries for maximum longevity. Click here to view the datasheet.
