Ground Power Unit

Recommended Posts

M20F-1968    197

I am looking for a Ground Power Unit (GPU) to allow running of avionics, updating software, etc... without running engine.  I have a Battery Minder, but that does not supply enough power.  I am thinking 25 - 50 amps of clean power.  The aviation ones run about $600.00.  There is an automobile company that makes an aviation product (available from Spruce) for about $250.00.  Are there other sources of power supplies that can do the job, but do not have the "aviation" word attached to them that raises the price to 1/2 AMU?

If I was buying one my first choice would be an Iota DLS converter
the company produces 12 volt and 24 volt units. 

Interesting product, but I notice it runs a volt low for an aviation 28V buss.

Not sure if that would be a problem for most aircraft. The thing that amazes me is the tight voltage control between no load and max load 0.2 volts.
