These portable power supplies are an excellent way to power your avionics on the ground while you train or practice in the cockpit. Especially helpful in learning how to operate glass cockpit avionics and panel mount GPS units. To use the Portable Power Supply plug the cord into an AC wall outlet, and then connect the 3-pin plug into the external power receptacle on your aircraft. Furnished with Cessna style 3-pin plug. Manufactured in U.S.A.
This unit can also be used as a battery charger, by using the battery clip adapter which is provided with the unit.
We primarily bought this unit for operation of a full panel of new avionics, and it works great. The term Cessna Style 3 Pin Plug was confusing, but it perfectly fits the external power port on our Beech B-95 Travel Air also. It came with a second adapter for battery charging, with large clothes-pin type clips. It will charge, then maintain a float on the battery if desired. Instructions provided are clear and simple for both functions. We are using it for avionics training and database updating, with no worries about running the battery down.
So far, used for about 4 hours in 3 sessions total powering avionics on ground in a C337G. Will not sustain power to hi-draw items, of course, but does not claim to. With avionics on, was able to run all non-LED exterior lighting for 30 seconds before battery indicated it was discharging. Appears to put out a steady 27.9-28 volts. Recommend for battery charging and short term (1-2 hrs) avionics usage on ground. Download and read manuals before ordering. Will need to order battery ring terminals separately.
Works exactly as advertised. I am able to power all my avionics on the ground with this unit. No issues whatsoever.
Works very well for providing equipment so you can learn equipment. It only outputs enough power to power up the systems. There is not enough power to run high draw equipment.
Exactly what I needed and it works. thank you
Charged my 24VDC drained battery in half a day. The battery clips were included (a plus!) I have also used it as an APU to run avionics on the ground, and that worked very well...the Cessna 3 prong connector was also included (another plus) Well worth the money.
I just got this, so havent had time to use it, but I would like to review the customer service I received. The first APU I received was apparently pulled from stock wrong, so not what I had ordered. I talked to Claudia Rodriguez on the phone, and then by email, and she quickly cleared things up and sent the right unit to me. She was courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient. Please give her a raise. Thanks.
Product works perfectly with my 2007 Diamond DA 40 XLT - allowing me to use my Garmin G1000 system (both PDF & MDF) without turning on any switches (runs without Master or Avionics switches on). In my case - it is required to have the unit switched on GEL battery mode. Aircraft Spruce packaged and shipper the product on time which arrived in new condition without damage.
Purchased this for my 1972 E55 Baron to power my avionics on the ground so I could learn how to use the GPS etc. Couldnt have been easier to use just plug it in to the external power port on the plane and switch it on. Make sure you read your POH concerning external power. My master switch is left off and I just turned on my avionics master. Spent about 3 hours messing with the GPS units and setting them up perfectly. Well worth the money of this unit.
This unit 11-05086 has a 20 Amp DC Output.
It is 100-240 VAC 50/60Hz.
Per the vendor: "The 11-05086 is current limited @ 28.8 VDC which is within the deviation you reference, it should be suitable."
Per the supplier: should charge as well in the absence of a load draw.
The length of the cable from the charger to the end of the receptacle is approximately 9-1/2 feet.
Per the supplier: Because this unit requires a battery to be in the circuit it (the battery) acts as a filter capacitor for the DC.
Yes, the charger included with this kit is a Schauer model JAC2024H.
This comes equipped with a detachable AC cord that is 6ft. long. It connects into the charger with an IEC C13 style plug and has a North American grounded 3 prong style plug for the wall outlet. You would need to supply your own 240AV plug with an IEC C13 plug for the charger.
Part # 11-05086 is a power supply to power the aircraft avionics on ground so the aircraft battery is not used/drained.
The Cessna style 3-pin plug is commonly used with other aircraft manufacturers, such as Beechcraft, so it should work fine with your Baron.
