MIL POWER

Armies and special forces around the world count on our expertise. With the MIL POWER, HITZINGER presents a ground power supply developed in collaboration with leading militaries for the most demanding conditions of military use.

Robustness and longevity, the lowest fuel consumption, jet fuel compatibility, air transport suitability with optimum dimensions and the lowest weight, a low sound level and an innovative EMC concept. In the development of these special units, we are able to build on our many years of experience in this sector. Worldwide, MIL POWER special applications are always put to the hardest test.

Technical highlights

The MIL POWER is characterised by optimised economy, increased efficiency, the lowest weight, compact dimensions and the lowest noise emissions. Low maintenance and extremely easy servicing and operation complete the profile of this purpose-made development. We guarantee you optimum & reliable power performance in the most adverse conditions.

Harshest operating conditions
Thanks to a generous conceptual specification and an ingenious design, the MIL POWER delivers the specified power reliably in arduous environmental conditions, without limitation, anytime.

Optimised economy
With the engine speed lowered and when used in conjunction with an extremely efficient 400 Hz alternator, the MIL 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.
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. A large-size soundproofing enclosure provides optimum access for servicing and maintenance.

Simplified user operation
The 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 conditions. The resistive touchscreen is straightforward to use even when gloves are worn. For the rare occasion that the MIL POWER is out of use, a protective flap gives the touchscreen display optimum shelter against wind and weather.
