Red Box International
has expertise in
the design and construction of "hand portable and towed power systems".
These units can be used for starting and servicing military aircraft &
helicopters. The portable ground power units (GPUs) and a continuous power
system gives the advantage of independent portable DC power. Whether for
engine starting or technical support, these are ideal for use in remote
locations or situations where permanent power source are not available.
There is a range of units to suit most needs and operational requirements
for providing DC power in maintenance shops or in the field.
The Red Box range of power units are designed to offer every variation of
power needed for Aircraft, Vehicles, the Rail Industry and the Military.
They have a full range of start units including:
12/24/28v Start Power Units
The ideal solution for starting the majority of DC aircraft. Designed to
start the very smallest aircraft right up to large business jets, there are
a range of voltages and power capacities available.
12V/24V & 14V/28V Switchable Start Units
With the Red Box 'switch cable system' these switchable units can outlive
similar products on the market by up to 100%. Red Box dual voltage systems
comprise of 2 batteries cleverly configured to ensure that an equal amount
of current is drawn from both cells, regardless of whether you are using the
unit in 12V or 24V mode. Available in pure lead and lithium.
Lithium Start Power Units
The Red Box range of Lithium start units are the lightest in the world.
These GPU's weigh as little as 7.2kg; with maximum outputs of up to 8000
Amps. As with all Red Box ground power units the lithium range can be
twinned together to create larger capacity units.
10V to 30V DC Continuous Power
The RBSC and RBPS range are specifically designed and built by Red Box to
provide the cleanest possible DC power unit. The products range from 25 Amps
up to 600 Amps (if you require more please refer to the RBC5000 TRU range).
The units are able to switch between two voltages, set at 14V and 28V as
standard, but this may be set at different voltages on request. Almost all
units are mains powered units, with the exception of the TC400/28C, which is
a battery unit. To find a suitable continuous unit for your aircraft and
needs, please email us.
Combination Start and Continuous Units
The TC3000A range is simply a combination between Red Box battery pwered
start units and our mains powered continuous power supply units. When
plugged into the mains, these units will supply up to 225Amps continuously,
dependent on the model. When unplugged they will give up to 5000 peak Amps,
dependent on the model.
HybRED Start & Continuous Power
This Red Box Unit combines a petrol engine with a bank of batteries to
offer the slickest combination unit I the world. The weight and the size of
the unit is unrivalled, making it the obvious choice of Business Jet owners
Transformer Rectifier Units
The RBC5000 is designed to be extremely user friendly and offer excellent
power to weight and size ratio. The unit is over powered; this means you can
guarantee the power this unit offers. The RBSC5000 provides up to 1600,2000
or 3000 peak Amps, comes in an IP54 case and is capable of working at
temperatures from -20°C to +50 °C. Other variants are available
and units can be built to specification.
Continuous Battery Power Units
No fuel, no pollution, no noise.
The TC400/28 range is designed to give silent, clean power. These 28V DC
power supplies can offer both continuous power for a set time, and start
power. With a built in 'flashing' light, the units will tell you when it is
time to charge them. They also come with a built in voltmeter and an
external charger that allows you to leave them on charge when not in use,
ensuring they are always ready for operation. The range is designed
specifically for use when mains power is not readily available. They are
maintenance free, with n moving parts- making these units an extremely cost
effective, environmentally friendly option.
Red Box GPU units were designed with Power Factor to guarantee a perfect
sinusoidal input current from 25% to 150% load and a low (<3%). Red Box
ensure high quality, efficient and secure electrical power supplies.
Aircraft Moving Equipment
Red Box Tugs are designed by people who understand the importance of being
able to glide an aircraft around a hangar and airfield with absolute
accuracy. The tug range now consists of over 12 different tugs with the
capability to move an aircraft up to 15,875kg (35,000lbs).
Eagle Tugs are a well established company founded on providing the best
solution for aircraft moving requirements for the larger and new range of
wide bodied aircrafts. The range consists of 7 tugs, each designed to offer
different solutions depending on the customer requirements. The largest tug
in the range, the XL-40 is capable of moving up to 169,000kg (372,000lbs).
Engineering company Zaglauer was founded and developed in 1953, and has
been manufacturing aircraft tractors for private and commercial use since
1993. The product range includes eleven different base units for a variety
of aircraft types. The Flyer-Truck Ground Handling Tugs are available with
both internal combustion engines and electric drive. For help with the best
tug for your aircraft, contact our sales team.
Aviation Tools and Solution Boxes
Red Box offers a selection of pre-designed aviation tool solution kits that
have been designed using the highest quality tools to offer aviation
maintenance personnel the best solution for AOG and base maintenance tasks.
The kits can be provided as seen below in impact-resistant cases or in the
Red Box Pro series of electronic tool control cabinets. The kits come with
aircraft tools laid out in laser cut Skydrol-resistant foam and can also be
laser etched. Red Box can create kits designed to customer specification or
Inspection Camera Systems
Red Box International have been producing camera inspection kits since
1998. With two main systems, the SnakeCam and the RBF700 range, Red Box
provide remarkably high quality, low cost inspection systems; currently used
by MROs and FBOs.
