Portable Starting Unit Model 1324-1QC

The new patent pending START PAC® 1324-1QC has separate removeable batteries that can be changed in 15 seconds. This feature allows the user to change the batteries in the field without needing to return the unit to our facility for battery replacement.

The Model 1324-1QC is a 24 volt unit. The 1324-1QC will start turbine or piston engines up to 500 horsepower. This unit has a 4.5 amp charger and will provide a charge time of approximately 4 hours. These units will give two to three starts between charges. Certain aircraft will allow the ship’s generator to back charge a GPU. In this manner, START PAC® can be recharged in the field without an AC source indefinitely.

This unit is designed for engine starting only.
