In continuous production for more than 20 years, and in military use worldwide, this recently upgraded aircraft start unit uses a tough, corrosion resistant, all stainless steel case designed for use in harsh or saline environments.
Produced in partnership with Powervamp, the GPU 1700 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 1700 is fitted with solid state voltmeter with ‘push to view’ button to monitor battery voltage. Supplied with Nato lead set, charge lead and heavy-duty canvas protective jacket.
