FW24-START38 --- 24V Portable Starter Packs

  • Product Description

    Standard equipment with the British military and carried on board all frigates for turbine starting on all Lynx helicopters, the FW24-START38 has been proven as a reliable and heavy-duty 24 V pack for many years.

    Designed as a larger, more powerful pack than the START26, where the starting of larger turbines with longer start cycles demands more amp/hr capacity, the START38 is a high performance pack designed for tough daily operations in harsh or remote environments.

    Like other Flywell Power GPUs, it can also be coupled in parallel to double its capacity. A simple parallel yoke will instantly connect two START38 units to become the START76 (twin). The GPU has the same heavy-duty pull FW24-START38 10-16 seat helicopters with shaft turbines Corporate turbo prop Corporate jets TPE 331, Arrius ALF 502, PT6A-20 FW24-START38 on/push off isolator as the START38, with replaceable 'on condition' silver-plated contacts for maximum power transfer.

    It is used also by logging companies and as an emergency starting pack on ALF 502 turbofans / BAE 146s. Ideal for off-shore operators needing to start a variety of heavier turbines, the pack is designed for rapid deployment and tough handling in extreme environments. There are no protrusions, keys or aperture covers to bend, break, lose or snag when handling or stowing. In use with US and British forces for many years, the START38 is unequalled in its clean lines, tough all stainless steel case, and 38 Ah capacity.
