What is the Foxcart 1200?
The Foxcart 1200 is a single-phase power input unit and should only be considered if three-phase power is not available. It will deliver the rated DC power, but with less efficiency and regulation than the other three-phase models. It can handle starts on helicopters and other light aircraft and will greatly assist a battery start on heavier aircraft.
This unit is capable of producing 600 amps continuous for hangar / ramp use or 1200 amps max for starting.
- Output Volts: 28VDC
- Peak DC Out: 1200 AMPS
- Continuous DC Out: 600 AMPS
- Input Power Required: 208-240 Volts Single Phase 200 AMPS Service
18 Inch Riser Option
Please request this option at the time of the quote.
What is the 18 Inch Riser Kit Option?
The new 18-inch riser kit is to be fully compliant with safety regulations of the hangar environment. This well-known "18-inch rule" requires there be no electrical connection allowed within the 18-inch area above the hangar floor known as a Class 1, Division 2 area. This area is considered to be hazardous because fumes from spilled jet fuel may not yet have dispersed sufficiently to avoid ignition were an arch to occur; in this context, from a loose electrical connection within a mobile power unit (GPU or Cart). For a more thorough explanation of this ruling, one can reference Article 513 of the NEC and EN 60079-10 of the European Standard.
Flextronics / Unitron warrants each new Foxcart Mark II Series to be free of defects in material and workmanship, under normal use and service for one year from date of shipment. Warranty subject to change.
