The ITW GSE Range of Ground Power Units

ITW GSE is the leading supplier of 400 Hz and 28 VDC Ground Power Units (GPUs) to the airport industry with roots stretching back nearly 100 years.

If you are in aviation and haven’t yet done business with ITW GSE, there are some very good reasons for getting to know us:

At ITW GSE, we monitor the aviation market and are at the forefront of new aircraft requirements and market developments.

With an in-depth knowledge of the Ground Support Equipment industry, we combine customer-back innovation to develop and deliver 400Hz and 28 VDC power solutions that are tailored to your needs. As a result, you get cleaner and more reliable ground support systems that improve the working environment for your staff and increase the efficiency of your operations.

The backbone of all ITW GSE design is our common design platform that offers significant advantages.

All products are equipped with the ITW GSE icon-based user interface. It is easy and intuitive to use – just like a smart phone or tablet. Airport staff that is already familiar with one ITW GSE product, can easily operate another since the display and the icons are the same. Less human errors during operation, simple product training, reduced spare part requirements and quick service and repair are advantages of the ITW GSE Way of Thinking.

We supply 400 Hz GPUs, 28 VDC GPUs or combinations of those. As our Power Units are available in solid-state, diesel or battery versions, we got you covered whatever your needs are.



Intelligent Power Management (IPM)

Simply smarter exploitation of your installed power

Over the past years, ITW GSE have designed and commissioned many airport projects, including PCAs and 400 Hz equipment.

Those installations have made it obvious that most electrical installations hide large, free power potentials, because they are designed to cover the power needs in a “worst case scenario” and not just the actual power consumption.

As a result of these experiences, we have developed the Intelligent Power Management (IPM), and you can read more about it here.

Our legacy brands

ITW GSE has manufactured Ground Power Units for the aviation industry since the late 1940'ties. You may, however, remember us by the names of AXA Power, Hobart, Houchin, or ITW GSE Military. Or you may associate our cables and hose products with the J&B Aviation. Although the name is now different, we still supply Power, Air, Cables and Hoses.
