In order to develop dedicated and efficient units for two different applications (engine starts demanding peak current, or constant current for maintenance tasks) and with the aim of manufacturing the most compact, lightweight and portable Ground Support Equipment in the market, instead of manufacturing one unit that has both capabilities, ENERCRAFT designed two separate and specific families:
• Ultra-Starters, and
• GPUs Lite
However, we understand that, from time to time, both applications may be needed at the same time (i.e. delivering a constant current to provide energy to the different systems of an aircraft, plus having an additional peak current to start the engines). For those specific cases, ENERCRAFT decided to develop a complementary device called Dual Connector (2 x 3 PIN NATO AN2551), that allows the operators to combine the use of any of the Ultra-Starters and any of the GPUs Lite to work in parallel, while always maintaining the convenience of having two small individual equipment that, on a daily basis, can be used separately and serve two different aircraft.
Although our Ultra-Starter units are already designed with an internal Power Supply to provide enough power for running certain avionics or other electronic equipment (up to 10Amp when the unit is plugged in to be used as a GPU), it is possible that, depending on the type of operation that the customer performs, it may need to power the aircraft at some point with a GPU that provides more continuous power (70 or 130 Amp, for example), and, at the same time, starting the engine, by connecting also the Ultra-Starter.
Our unique Dual Solution enables such operations while retaining the flexibility of having two independent equipment if, in a different situation, the Ultra-Starter unit is required to start an engine and the GPU unit is required for maintenance tasks on a different aircraft. The individual weight of each unit, or the total weight of the Dual Solution, are the lowest in the market.
A Dual Connector is an ingenuous device developed by ENERCRAFT to allow the connection of any of the ENERCRAFT units in parallel.
It has two (2) External Power Receptacles MS3506-1 where the two ENERCRAFT units will be connected with their two AN2551 Plugs (Standard and / or heavy-duty / Rubber), and one AN2551 (Standard and / or heavy-duty / Rubber) to connect the whole set of two units to the aircraft.
