Technical highlights

The D POWER is characterised by optimised economy and increased efficiency. Low maintenance and extremely easy servicing and operation complete the profile of this purpose-made development. We guarantee you optimum power performance.

Optimised economy
With the engine speed lowered to 1,500 rpm and when used in conjunction with an extremely efficient 400 Hz alternator, the D POWER generation manages to achieve greater economy, particularly as a result of reduced fuel consumption. This in turn leads to lower maintenance costs with extremely low noise emissions.

Increased efficiency
Thanks to the high efficiency of the alternator, independent of the load curve, aircraft can be supplied as economically as possible even under partial load.

Maximum serviceability
The modular arrangement of the switchgear simplifies all service work. Large-size side flaps provide optimum access.

Simplified user operation
The 15.4'' touchpanel of the control station offers intuitive user navigation. Easy to read even in strong sunlight, it is also dust- and water-tight and suitable for use in the most adverse airfield conditions. The resistive touchscreen is straightforward to use even when gloves are worn.
