The 7400 JetEx is a purely battery driven unit. Therefore, it is super quiet and emission free to the benefit of operators and staff. It also makes the eGPU ideal for hangar and for remote use as well.
The eGPU can be used for engine start, ramp operations or for test of avionics. Actually, the 7400 has enough power to perform up to 100 engine starts on a full charge. If need be, the 28 VDC power unit can be charged simultaneously while delivering power to an aircraft.
The ITW GSE 7400 JetEx 28 VDC eGPU combines two known technologies into one innovative GPU.
The JetEx eGPU is powered by a 4 fourth-generation Nissan Leaf battery pack with a capacity of 40 kWh. The same type of battery as in all Nissan branded electric vehicles. Since 2010, over 400,000 of these vehicles have been sold, with close to 90,000 in 2018 alone.
At the output of the eGPU is ITW GSE’s well-proven 28 VDC solid-state converter. This combination of two tried and true technologies has created the rock-solid eGPU.
