Ground Power Units for Aircraft, 400Hz Solid-State Units, Airport PCA Units

ITW GSE is the leading supplier of power, air, cables & hoses to the aviation industry. Until April 2018, we sold our products under the brand names: AXA Power, Hobart, Houchin, ITW GSE Military and J&B Aviation Now we are simply ITW GSE – same great people, same great products, same great company.

If you need power, we got it no matter whether you require solid-state ground power units, diesel powered units or gasoline powered. Also, we provide a true game changer in the ongoing quest for lowering the environmental impact at airports, namely the ITW GSE 7400 eGPU. Zero CO2 and NOx emissions at the place of use and drastic reduction of noise is the key for achieving greener airports and better working environments. The 7400 GPU does just that!

If you need to cool your aircraft, we recommend the ITW GSE 3400 PCA, the market’s only modular pre-conditioned air unit. Also, we supply a multitude of cables and hoses for all aircraft types.

The backbone of all ITW GSE equipment is our common design platform. All our products are equipped with the ITW GSE icon-based operator interface, that’s as easy and intuitive to use as a smartphone. Another advantage is the modular design which means quick service and repair, spare part communality and reduced stock requirements.

That’s the ITW GSE Way of thinking!

Downloads and Updates

The software-based control system means your ITW GSE 2400 Power Coil can be updated and given additional capabilities in the future, simply by transferring new software from a USB stick/flash drive. Service log files and maintenance data can also be transferred the same way for analysis and to help ensure more efficient back-office procedures and more effective facility management

Company Profile

  • ITW GSE 2400 Compact GPU - The market's best choice

    The ITW GSE 2400 Compact GPU series is the market’s best choice when it comes to solid-state, point-of-use GPUs. It is small and simple, reliable and robust. It has all kinds of outstanding technical qualities from the unique output voltage at the aircraft plug, the common ITW GSE user interface, soft-ware update via USB to the standard overload capabilities that matches all types of aircraft.

    Optimum voltage at the aircraft plug

    The 2400 Compact GPU is equipped with the patented Plug & Play system. Therefore, you experience an outstanding voltage quality at the aircraft plug. This is what matters and what makes your aircraft accept the voltage from the GPU.

    The Plug & Play means that the ITW GSE 2400 Compact fulfills the stringent requirements of most installations as it compensates for long symmetrical output cables, unbalanced loads as well as various power factors. The magnetic wave-shaping topology ensures a clean input power with a unity power factor and a current THD less than 5%.

    The ITW GSE 2400 Compact also provides other outstanding features such as:

    • 400% standard overload which makes the GPU future-proof
    • ITW GSE common user interface
    • Maximum personal safety
    • Easy access for cable connection & vital components
    • Suits all types of aircraft incl. A380, A350, B787
  • ITW GSE 2400 Power Coil - The Aesthetic Power Solution for a neat, nice and pleasant apron

    Axa Power Quick Install symbol

    The ITW GSE 2400 Power Coil includes a 400 Hz, 90 kVA power supply and a cable coil in one single enclosure.

    This leaves the PBB and the apron nice and neat and pleasant to look at. Especially, where glass bridges is the preferred solution, the aesthetic aspect is important. The Power Coil works perfectly well with all sizes of bridges and all types of aircraft.

    Innovative Solution based on Experience

    The ITW GSE 2400 Power Coil offers a highly reliable and robust design including a front plate in stainless steel. The Power Coil has an improved cable guidance system that ensures easy and smooth cable handling.

    As a standard, the Power Coil comes with 24m of cable (useable length). However, the spacious housing has room for at least 28m cable. The cable is rolled completely into the housing after use. The rolling automatically stops when the plug head is level with the lower edge of the Power Coil thus leaving the apron free.

    Unsurpassed Advantages

    • Quick & Easy installation
    • Less stress on the passenger boarding bridge
    • Supply all Aircraft (PF 0.8 – PF1)
    • Optimum voltage quality at the aircraft plug
    • High reliability and easy maintenance
    • Innovative design
    • ITW GSE Operator Interface
    • Downloads and Updates via USB

    Additional Advantages

    • Weight reduction compared to the traditional solution with a separate converter and a cable coil
    • Space saving
    • One complete, tested and adjusted system
    • Requires only mounting and mains input cable installation
    • No cable compensation / adjustment needed
    • Simplified mechanical installation
  • ITW GSE 7400 eGPU - for cleaner and greener airports

    The ITW GSE 7400 is a true game changer in the ongoing quest for lowering the environmental impact at airports. Zero CO2 and NOx emissions at the place of work and drastic reduction of noise is the key for achieving greener airports and better working environments. The 7400 GPU does just that! As the eGPU uses battery power (instead of diesel), it is practically clean and silent. Further the eGPU emits no NOX into its operating environment. In this way, it contributes significantly to a cleaner and safer working environment for your employees.

    Extreme Flexibility

    The ITW GSE 7400 eGPU is set to change how airports think about ground power without making compromises. It is independent due to the onboard battery packs and can easily be transported to wherever it is needed. The flexible 7400 eGPU provides the same outstanding, well-proven features as other ITW GSE solid-state GPUs, including accurate and clean output voltage at the aircraft plug, and individual phase regulation of each output phase. It can perform multiple turnarounds before it needs recharging, and can be recharged from any standard 50/60Hz socket.

    The combination of two well-proven technologies i.e. Nissan batteries at input and an ITW GSE solid-state converter at output has created the rock-solid eGPU that has already been successfully tested at Amsterdam Schiphol Airports.

    Durable Design

    The ITW GSE 1400 is a small, light and easy maneuverable solid-state GPU that does not take up much space neither in mobile nor in the fixed version.

    The solid-state technology means that wear and tear is limited to a minimum since there are no rotating parts.

    The result is a very reliable and dependable unit that is built to last for a long time. In case of service or repair, the canopy can be completely removed within minutes, thus leaving full access to all parts.

    Available in the following ratings:

    • 400A – 600A with peak loads of 1600 and 2400A
    • The units are available in mobile as well as in fixed versions.
  • ITW GSE 4400 Diesel GPU

    The ITW GSE 4400 series is available with a Cummins Tier 3 or Tier 4 engine so that no matter where you are located, we have a 400 Hz mobile driven GPU to meet your needs.

    The 4400 is a mobile, diesel-powered 400 Hz GPU that’s ideal for supplying power to all aircraft at places wherever you need an independent external power source. The GPU provides a quiet, fuel-efficient apron power system, and the unit is easy to move to where you need it – remarkably tough and supremely reliable.

    The engine, alternator, controls, batteries and cables are all easily accessible but completely protected under a tough, corrosion-free canopy made of resilient medium-density Polyethylene. All maintenance points that need to be checked regularly (fuel, oil, water, etc.) are easy to access. The entire canopy can be removed by hand in less than two minutes – no hoists or cranes needed.

  • ITW GSE 5400 Gasoline Powered GPU

    The ITW GSE 5400 Gasoline Powered GPU combines a standard gen-set with a 2400, 400 Hz solid-state converter. It is the first of its kind that runs at variable speed.

    The automatic adjustment of the engine speed to match changing capacity needs means a reduction of the noise. With its gasoline-powered engine, the 5400 is a low-emission alternative.
