Generators and APUs for Military Applications
Fischer Panda manufactures full military-specification generators which meet a wide range of MIL-STD requirements, especially concerning EMI levels and IR signatures, exhaust emissions, and operating sound levels. The generators are designed with fast and easy maintenance in mind, whatever the conditions or circumstances, which is essential for the military operator.
Custom-built generators can be constructed as practically all the main components are manufactured by Fischer Panda. With effective use of water-cooling and installed within a sound-insulated housing, they operate quietly and are practically vibration-free with a minimal thermal signature.
Generators for light military vehicles
Fischer Panda DC generators enhance lighter military vehicle systems with powerful charging capabilities and enable silent running. The DC PE150 Series, for example, is perfect for automatically maintaining battery systems onboard M113 tracked vehicles.
Fischer Panda AC generators supply electricity with a very clean sine wave suitable for sensitive electrical equipment. They are also capable of providing sufficient power for starting heavier equipment such as environmental control units (ECUs). With parallel load switching and parallel load sharing options available, the generators can function as decentralised power assets to manage peak demands for power during operations. They can then combine power output or swapping the load to sustain a supply.
The latest range of SST Generators feature engines capable of running at variable speed while maintaining a constant frequency. They can adjust the speed to match the load with significant fuel savings, reduced wear and lower exhaust emissions. These generators can also offer full load sharing capabilities.
Fischer Panda builds generators designed specifically for vehicles with dedicated generator tunnels. These have been enhanced to form a combo-generator, featuring an AC generator and high efficiency ECU in a single unit.
Combined air-conditioner and power system (CAPS) for container-based applications
The latest product from Fischer Panda is a highly sophisticated combined air-conditioner and power system (CAPS) for container-based applications requiring electrical power, advanced ECU heating and air-conditioning. By fully utilising performance, management and self-testing features, the CAPS can maintain an optimal environment for sensitive electronic equipment and personnel to operate. This system offers thermo-management capabilities so heat can be supplied from three different sources: heat as “by product” from the generator, integrated diesel heating and heat produced electrically.
Air-conditioner output that depends on the altitude using active performance management ensures full electrical supply of the shelter. The CAPS system is designed for command units maintaining a heightened “battle readiness” and who are expecting disruption or total loss of the mains power grid. Upon loss grid power, the generator is automatically started and the supply switched over. This can also be done manually. Electrical systems are supplied via multiple electrical outlets with isolation transformer protection. During periods of inactivity, advanced “built-in test equipment” allows the CAPS System to start and automatically accomplish system tests to ensure it is functioning correctly.
