Airports all over the world are beginning to think greener. And more and more airports are interested in reducing their environmental impact. Often the world’s largest airports are located next to major cities that are growing in line with global trends, meaning cities and airports are coming into ever-closer contact. This leads to stricter requirements in terms of the emissions local governments can and will accept.
The ITW GSE 7400 eGPU has been specially engineered as a battery powered 400 Hz unit that will help airports reduce their carbon foot print and replace their diesel powered GPUs.
The ITW GSE 7400 battery powered eGPU is in a class of its own and comes without compromise. It is autonomous and can easily be transported to wherever it is needed.
The environment friendly 7400 eGPU provides the same outstanding, well-proven qualities of other ITW GSE solid-state GPUs, including precise and clean output voltage at the aircraft plug, and individual phase regulation of each output phase.
It can do 5-6 turn-arounds in case of a narrow-body aircraft before it needs recharging. And it can be recharged from any nearby 50/60Hz socket.
In addition, the modular design means the unit can be equipped with the number of battery packs needed to suit actual power requirements. Finally, if one battery pack fails, others take over to ensure you never run out of power
The ITW GSE 7400 eGPU combines two known technologies into one innovative GPU.
At the input, the ITW GSE 7400 eGPU is powered by 4 pieces of fourth generation Nissan Leaf battery packs. Each pack has a capacity of 40 kWh. This is the exactly same type of battery found in all Nissan-branded electric vehicles. Since 2010, over 500,000 of these vehicles have been sold, with more than 90,000 in 2017 alone.
