How to Appropriately Configure Your GPU to Your Plane
The set up process is fairly painless and will allow you to work off your GPU.
Setting up your 28 volt battery pack to your aircraft can be a nuisance if you’re an amateur pilot. Fortunately, this guide will walk you through the steps on how to operate your ground power unit and connect it to your plane with ease.
Locate Your External Power Connector
Depending on the model of you aircraft, your external power connector should be located on the side of your plane. Using a Philips head screwdriver, open the cover and locate the connector. You’ll notice that there the power connector has two large pins and one small pin above it.
Plug Your GPU In
The GPU power connector is keyed and will match he appropriate socket. Simply plug in your GPU connector into the appropriate pins and push firmly. There are no latches or clips so there won’t necessarily be a sound that will confirm that it’s placed correctly. Just be sure that you push the 28 volt battery pack in to where it’s firmly in place.
Once everything is in place, double check that your GPU is producing the set amount of power that your plane requires (28 volts for example) by reading the gauges. Then, turn your GPU on and verify that your plane is receiving the specified voltage. You can then simply turn on your master switch and your avionics switch. Your plane is now powered via the GPU and you can perform the necessary work that you need.
