Flex Pit Multi Functional Ground Pit


These pits combine the rotating flap and the elevating system to bring all connections above ground at user’s level. Once connected, the pits can be closed to avoid unnecessary hurdles around the aircraft.

Their modular design caters for all types of connections:
– 400 Hz, 28 VDC
– 50 Hz/60 Hz one or three phases, from 16 up to 250 A
– Compressed air, fanning air, water
– Others: computer network, earthing cable winder, etc…
The flap opening is only assisted by counterweights without any gas spring or electric actuator.
