Pop-up pit for 115 V / 400 Hz power supply and earthing cable winder.
Its use is easy and effortless thanks to its patented mechanism by TDA Lefébure.
The pit can also integrate other connections: 50/60 Hz, compressed air, computer network, etc...
The POP OUT Pit is the optimal solution for storing and protecting the 400 Hz aircraft cable for aircraft parked outside on remote positions.
It provides easy handling of the pit and of the cable. When closed, it lies flush with the ground.
Further facilities, such as aircraft grounding cable, can be incorporated in the Pit.
Lifting mechanism operated by counterweights, not influenced by temperature variations. A counterweight system compensating for the weight of the moving cylinder and regulating gas springs, allowing smooth and effortless opening and closing. In the closed position, the top plate offers perfect protection against water and sand intrusion in the pit. In the open position, the cylinder closes the gap and keeps the pit water and sand tight.
