eAPU60 Auxiliary Power Unit
Safran Power Units has specifically designed the eAPU to meet the highest requirements of "more-electric" and "all-electric" new-generation aircraft, helicopters and UAVs.
The gearbox can accommodate a wide range of DC or AC starter generators, particularly 28, 115 and 270 VAC units
Through customized design, the eAPU gearbox is capable of simultaneously driving any starter generator and alternator combination
The eAPU has pollution and noise emission levels, which are impressively low and below current requirements and anticipate future standards
The technologies and architecture retained for this new APU significantly optimize its performance and efficiency. Covering a wide range of power ratings, from 20 to 120 kVA, the eAPU family offers significant benefits, in particular the best power-to-weight ratio and dimensions in its category, reduced fuel consumption and improved endurance and reliability, which also mean a very competitive cost of ownership.
With its versatile gearbox, the eAPU can be adapted to different power configurations and electrical systems.
Auxiliary Power Units: Always at the cutting edge of innovation
Safran Power Units APUs are compatible with all hosts, whatever the application: civil or military, air, land or sea.
Safran Power Units' different turbine families deliver up to 500 shp (shaft horsepower) of electric, pneumatic or mechanical energy to match the specific needs of your programs.
