Fulfils ISO 6858

At ITW GSE, we monitor the market and are at the forefront of new aircraft requirements and market developments. This has been an objective since we introduced our first 400 Hz solid-state GPU to the market. And it still is ! Therefore, the ITW GSE 2400 Compact 400 hz GPU is designed to fulfil the ISO 6858 standard regarding voltage imbalance and phase displacement at the aircraft plug. We are even third party approved.

Small, reliable, robust

The 2400 series is the market’s best choice when it comes to solid-state, point-of-use converters. It is small and simple, reliable and robust. It has all kinds of outstanding technical qualities from the unique output voltage, the smart ITW GSE user interface, soft-ware update via USB and the standard overload capabilities that matches all types of aircraft from PF 0.8 to PF 1.

ITW GSE 2400 GPUs are simply smart  ground power units covering  your requirements for reliable 400 Hz supplies.

Unique Voltage Quality at the Aircraft Plug

Plug & Play

Fixed 400 Hz installations often include a mix of long symmetrical and asymmetrical output cables as well as connection boxes that makes it difficult to keep the required voltage quality at the aircraft connector. This is exactly where ITW GSE’s patented Plug & Play voltage compensation system makes a difference. The Plug & Play system is based on a true individual phase regulation combined with a predetermined model of the actual cable installation. Therefore, the 2400, 400 Hz GPU provides an outstanding voltage quality at the connector thus ensuring on-time departures and happy passengers!

The Plug & Play means that the ITW GSE 2400 Compact Ground Power Unit fulfills the stringent requirements of most installations as it compensates for long symmetrical output cables, unbalanced loads as well as various power factors.

The magnetic wave-shaping topology ensures a clean input power with a unity power factor and a current THD less than 5%.

Outstanding Features

The ITW GSE 2400 Compact GPU offers outstanding features such as

  • Up to 400% standard overload which makes the unit future-proof
  • ITW GSE common user interface
  • Maximum personal safety
  • Suits all types of aircraft incl. A380, A350, B787
  • Easy access for cable connection & vital components

ITW GSE 2400 Combi Compact Unit

Need to power two aircraft with just one GPU?itwgse 2400 combi compact illustration
Choose option ITW GSE 2400 Combi Compact Unit.

Often, the same parking position accommodates a large mix of aircraft during a day. Typically, a parking position would require a 400 Hz source in the morning where the bigger aircraft are docking – but 28 V  during other times of the day. Is this your requirement, the 2400 Compact Combi unit is the answer.

The ITW GSE 2400 Combi Compact is formerly sold under the AXA Power and the Hobart brands.

The combi unit is capable of delivering 400 Hz and regulated 28 VDC power, simultaneously and independently!

The 28 V Active Rectifier Unit (ARU) - available as a standard option - delivers superior voltage quality at the aircraft plug without jeopardising the 400 Hz voltage.
It goes without saying that the ITW GSE 2400 Compact Combi will power your aircraft, whether a narrow body or a turbo prop, whenever you need it!

Available in mobile and fixed version - see the ITW GSE 2400 brochure for more information.
