With the help of a counter-weight mechanism, the ground handler can bring the pit system easily into operation right next to the aircraft. Afterwards, ground supplies are provided under ergonomical working heights and aircrafts can be supplied easily, fast and safely with 400 Hz ground power. The Pop-up Pit can hold up to four 400 hz cables plus additional supplies as needed.
Efficiency at its best
You save time and money. The necessary connections are always available on site and ready to use. The thought-out product concept makes the pit system very easy to service and maintain and increases the service cycles. A closed system perfectly uses the available space underneath the apron as it can bear loads up to 90 tons.
Intelligent and modular design
The innovative, modular design allows an individual configuration of each pit system. This means that additional supplies, controls and connections can be added flexibly on customer demands. Moreover, it is always possible to reconfigure the system or add new items.
