A Helicopter Starting/Servicing System typically consists of a Transformer Rectifier unit (TRU), control panels, socket boxes and cables. The Transformer Rectifier Units used for shipboard helicopter starting applications have three basic modes of operation:
- Powering the starter motor of a helicopter – The TRUs are specifically designed to supply the high peak current requirement
- Providing a 28.5VDC supply to aircraft on-board equipment
- Providing an 18.2V DV supply for turning the helicopter turbo shaft engine at reduced speed for compressor washing
Rectifier systems are manufactured according to defined standards in the Request for Quotation(RFQ). Saguen can provide unique solutions by making original designs in non-standard projects.
