Carolina GSE Serves As Sole Source for JBT Ground Equipment
Carolina GSE (Booth No. C7621) now serves as the exclusive corporate and FBO distributor in the U.S. and other territories for JBT AeroTech, the manufacturer of 400-Hz diesel and electric ground power units, preconditioned air units and 28.5 VDC rectifiers, the New Bern, N.C. ground support equipment supplier announced here.
JBT now offers a redesigned JetPower system with a multi-tap transformer providing 208/230/460 VAC (and any voltage in between) for hangar applications. Another recent introduction, the JBT JetPower III/28, is a compact 28-VDC ground power supply designed to provide aircraft with power from a standard 50- or 60-Hz source. The unit comes in 200-, 400- and 600-amp versions and features a four-wheel cart for easy, single-person transport.
JBT has also recently introduced the JetPower mobile TR (transformer/rectifier). The TR provides 28 VDC from an existing 400-Hz system and supplies a fully regulated 28.5-VDC output with an optional current limit. Billed as a handy solution to support regional aircraft in environments already equipped to supply 400 Hz, the compact TR can support multiple locations because of its ease of transport.
