Red Box GPU's are specifically designed for heavy duty starting of turbine and turbo prop aircraft. This unit provides 50 amps of continuous power at 28.5 volts DC. For use at fixed bases or on remote stations, these units can operate in extremes of temperature and their power cells have excellent standby characteristics and do not need cycling. The essentially dry lead acid batteries are maintenance free and are replaceable on condition. The TC3000A/50-6 includes a 50 amps, 28.5 volt power supply with a charger installed within the GPU. This can also be used to provide continuous filtered power for general workshop use, pre flight checks, avionics work, weapons systems checks or to recharge the internal batteries of the unit. Supplied ready to use out of the box, all units are complete with a heavy duty aircraft cable fitted with a 3 pin NATO connector and a suitable mains lead. These units, due to their high power, are normally 220 volt 50/60Hz input, but other options are available upon request.
All Red Box TC3000 units feature a digital microprocessor control system which monitors several parameters and displays the voltage, current and system status. This also monitors and controls the voltage output and the automatic charging of the batteries.
