The GPU is rated at 330 CCA. Multi-unit chargers offer redundant field reliability. Units can be serviced in the field if needed when conducting locomotive maintenance.

Model 3324RR weighs 215 lbs. with dimensions 38″x21″x20″ and is pulled by hand or by a tug. The handle is 48” high. Locking the handle in an upright position sets the brake for this railroad locomotive starter GPU.

Power cables are normally 25′ but can be up to 35′. 800 amp alligator clamps can be installed if required.

PLEASE NOTE: When trying to start a locomotive with a dead battery, the battery must be disconnected (knife switch).

NOTE: Always recharge the GPU until green charger lights appear. Once charged, it is not necessary to leave the unit turned on. If a heater is installed, leave unit plugged in.

Always recharge soon after being used to prevent sulfation of the batteries.

CAUTION- When using the emergency disconnect, whether activating or deactivating, there should be no load on the Start Pac® batteries from the locomotive. Severe arcing will result which will cause damage to the relays. Therefore, only use the disconnect under normal operations while the Start Pac® is unloaded except in an emergency.

NOTE- PLEASE USE #12 or Larger AC EXTENSION CORD

 

Batteries have no memory effect and can be recharged at anytime. Made in the USA.
