The 1700W Generator Control Unit (GCU) provides and manages electrical generation and storage for small to medium-sized UAVs. It provides a main power output of up to 900W at 57.5V, and includes two user-configurable battery chargers that each deliver up to 400W for rapid in-flight recharging.
The system provides active rectification of 3-phase inputs for the highest possible efficiency and minimal self-heating. Outputs incorporate interleaved spread-spectrum modulated DC-DC converters for the best possible EMI/RFI performance.
The GCU can be combined with the VISIONAIRtronics 900W Power Distribution Unit to provide a complete drone power supply solution, including electrical power generation, battery management, power distribution and redundancy for critical sub-systems.
The system can be monitored via RS232 serial or CAN, and provides comprehensive voltage, current and internal temperature data. It is available in either a regular slimline or rugged IP67-rated enclosure.
The GCU is available as a modular variant to enable different configurations such as a single output.
