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

PATENTED

Operating a free-running, environmentally friendly, mobile GPU is the best option in today’s fast-paced aviation industry if you want starting and continuous power capabilities even when you’re away from the hangar and have no access to AC power.  Additionally, this mobile GPU will reduce your operating costs and save time by eliminating the need for you to move your aircraft from the ramp to the hangar by tug.

START PAC® has developed a groundbreaking 100% emission free, electrical GPU capable of repeatedly starting engines and powering up aircraft systems: the START PAC GREEN® (patent pending).  This autonomous modular GPU is the first of its kind and has been developed especially 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.

100% electrically powered by a powerful 26V battery bank, the new  START PAC GREEN® is ideal 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 stand alone configuration (not plugged into the AC mains), it can power up the avionics in excess of seven hours, including the air conditioning when needed (see graphs).

The START PAC GREEN® can be used as a fully independent unit in the hangar without giving rise to any pollution or hazardous emissions, unlike its diesel counterparts.  Along with its zero emissions, expect the operating costs to be halved compared to running a diesel-powered GPU; this is the case even when you take into account the cost of future, replacement batteries. The START PAC GREEN® is just much more efficient than gas- or diesel-powered units.

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, just in case the service batteries are run down too low to be able to start the engine.  This extra starting unit can either be carried on board easily or left inside the main unit to be used as a backup engine starter.

Recharging takes approximately 6-8 hours and that is only if the main batteries are fully depleted.  The GREEN is a single-phase unit that runs from 220VAC in order to save on the high cost of installing 3-phase power.  Simple and easy to maneuvre on the ramp for shorter distances, the unit can still 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 over 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 not able to 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 spill-able 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 in the unit to 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
