APU (Auxiliary Power Units) are the systems which give energy so that the systems on the vehicle could operate actively when the vehicle ignition switch is off and provide climatization of the air within the vehicle by operating vehicle air conditioning system and the required energy for the vehicle on armoured military vehicle. These systems which are integrated to armoured vehicles, have the capability to carry on all the activities on the vehicle even when vehicle engine is out.
Different from generators, these systems which have no battery and fuel tank, could be embedded into the vehicle or could be assembled to outer shell. APU designs could be made between 2 kW and 100 kW as per customer’s choice. By adding hydraulic pump and air conditioner compressor to these systems which gets the fuel from vehicle tank and first ignition electricity from vehicle battery, they can cool inside of the vehicle without operating the vehicle engine. By extending the vehicle engine life and saving fuel, it can actively operate weapon systems, vehicle computer, fire suppression systems, power distribution unit, CBRN systems on the vehicle. Thanks to the remote-control unit; IP7 control unit with electronic card which provides the user with all the errors and information on digital screen, is designed and APUs have been turned into smart systems. On this control unit, the user can easily reach on digital screen the information such as overheating status, fuel level, pressure level, DC current, battery voltage status. Besides, there are 2 different starting options as automatic starting and manual starting on control unit.
