Solid State Aircraft Ground Power Units

Aircraft cannot use the domestic 50Hz or 60Hz power when on the ground. Consequently, aircraft will utilise ground support equipment (GSE) from the airport apron to switch service loads and navigation avionics to the correct frequency. PSI’s 400Hz frequency converters help fulfil this requirement.

The 400Hz frequency convertor eliminates noise and air pollution, unnecessary fuel consumption and contributes to the reduction of maintenance needed on the APU, generators and batteries.

400Hz Frequency Converters | GPU

Our 400Hz frequency converter GPU range includes outdoor all weather units that can be used for military airfield and airport applications.

These compact converters can be fixed to the gantry of a passenger loading bridge.

We can supply either fixed or mobile units mounted to a trailer in vertical or horizontal configurations. Contact us today for more information. You can also view our datasheet for a technical specification.

The Benefit of GPUs
  • The GPU only needs to be switched on when it is needed.
  • The 400Hz frequency convertor eliminates noise and air pollution, unnecessary fuel consumption and contributes to the reduction of maintenance no the product.

Useful information

Basic Mechanical construction

The basic mechanical construction is in vertical format with ingress protection IP20 with optional IP42 and IP54, there is a horizontal version available for mounting on a mobile trolley, trailer or on floor stands.

Benefit of 400Hz Solid State Frequency Converters

They can also be hung underneath the walkway, or the vertically configured systems can be installed at a convenient place close to aircraft. We also have indoor versions of the GPU for use in maintenance hangars, avionics workshops, hard shelters and simulator applications.
