Model START PAC GREEN®, the first fully electrical autonomous GPU

PATENTED

Starting and continuous power capabilities away from the hangar, especially where you have no access to AC power is often a necessity.  Time saved moving aircraft from the ramp to the hangar by tug helps to reduce operating costs. Operating a free running, environmentally friendly mobile GPU is the best option in today’s fast-paced aviation industry.

START PAC® has developed a groundbreaking 100% emission free electrical GPU, capable of repeated starting engines and powering up aircraft systems; this patent pending unit is the START PAC GREEN®. This GREEN modular GPU is the first emission free autonomous GPU for operators who are limited to AC mains power access on the ramp and need a powerful solution to jump start their fleet of aircraft and power various aircraft electrical such as avionics, GPS and other high draw systems.

The new START PAC GREEN® is 100% electrically powered by a powerful 26V battery bank for starting any electrically started aircraft including voltage sensitive ones. Its sizeable battery capacity will provide enough clean continuous power to run aircraft systems for hours. When plugged into 220V AC mains, the unit can be used as a power supply, providing 28V clean continuous power if needed. In a standalone configuration (not plugged in to the AC mains), it can power up the avionics for more than 7 hours and even the air conditioning to cool the cabin when needed (see graphs).

The START PAC GREEN® can be used as a fully independent unit in the hangar without any pollution or hazardous emissions like diesel units. Along with zero emissions, it also has half of the operating cost compared to a diesel-powered GPU, even with replacement cost of batteries in the future. Moreover, the GREEN is much more efficient when compared to gas- or diesel-powered vehicles.

In addition to the main battery bank (also called the service battery), a START PAC® 26V portable starting unit has been included inside the case for engine starting if the service batteries have been run down too low to be able to start the engine. This additional starting unit can either be easily carried on board or can be left inside the main unit to be used as a backup engine starter.

If fully depleted, the main service batteries are quickly recharged in approximately 6-8 hours. The GREEN is a single-phase unit that runs from 220VAC to save on the high cost of installing 3-phase power. The unit is simple and easy to maneuver on the ramp for shorter distances and yet can be towed for longer distances.

FEATURES

  • 100% clean running emission free
  • Fully electrical autonomous GPU
  • Very large 1284 AH battery capacity for powering up aircraft systems for extended periods of time
  • Main battery bank is capable of starting the engine, but an additional state of the art patented portable starting unit is also included for back up engine starting
  • Designed for voltage sensitive aircrafts that cannot accept a true 28V external battery starter
  • No duty cycle, clean continuous power
  • Complete all-in-one unit is supplied with built in chargers to replenish both battery banks
  • 25’/7.6m heavy duty 4/O aircraft cable and heavy-duty extension Cord 50′ /15m long
  • Cold resistant, powerful, sealed cell non-hazardous lead acid batteries
  • Maintenance free
  • Nontoxic, non-spillable and 100% recyclable batteries
  • Resistant welded steel case with environmentally friendly, low VOC durable powder coat finish, easy to handle, built for heavy duty usage
  • Removable doors for easy maintenance access
  • Large wheels to allow easy maneuvering
  • High visibility built in digital output display: voltmeter/amp meter/hour meter
  • Emergency shutdown switch

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Service batteries can be used to start the engine if the voltage is still above 24.5V, otherwise use the auxiliary portable starting unit
  • START PAC® batteries have no memory effect and can be recharged at any time, so plug the unit for recharge whenever possible for optimum performance and maximum battery life and to prevent sulfation.
  • Built-in high-tech proprietary charging system.
  • Can be pulled by hand or towed by vehicle
  • Locking the handle in an upright position sets the GPU brake
