The advanced FW28-START17 is a state-of-the-art portable mini GPU designed as a lightweight emergency starting GPU for piston aircraft and light/medium turbine helicopters. The START17 has power, performance and features that far exceed any other comparable mini GPU.
With a nominal voltage of 26-28 V (for Eclipse-type aircraft) or 28-30 VDC (for aircraft with a higher upper voltage limit - typically for single turbine helicopters), spool-up performance of this 17 Ah pack is up to 17% faster than a similar capacity 24 V unit, with minimum weight penalty. Faster spool-ups mean cooler starts, aiding engine life. The START17 has its own built-in mini charger. Connecting a 110 / 220 V power cord to the unit will automatically activate the integral 3-stage charger. A 3-colour LED indicates charging status and a solid state digital voltmeter, with push-to-view button and timed auto shutdown, accurately displays output voltage.
The alloy case keeps weight to the minimum while the slim-line design and protective jacket allow the GPU to fit under seats or in any confined space. For continuous 28 V power for avionics work, maintenance, training or troubleshooting, or for fast charging, the GPU has an accessory port for connection to a power supply or powerful charger.
The START17 is cleared for air transportation when protected from short circuit by its special padded protective jacket. It is designed to work alongside Flywell Power's 30 A mini DC power supply. When operating in parallel, the two units offer a unique lightweight combination of performance and versatility.
