BOWMAN POWER DRAIN

#2
Crikey! We can't get General Dynamics to commit to transmission distances or equipment capabilities and you wanna know the power drain in amps! :)

You're not called Norman, have no mates and collect stamps do ya? You need to get out more bud.... preferably in the daylight, giggle!

That said.... i might have a source who can help you out. Will make enquiries and get back to you mate.

Not got the wiggly amps answer but I have worked with both armoured and wheeled Bowman platforms for a while now, the normal SOP that I get the guys to adhere to is once every twleve hours they must static run the engines/pack of the platform. This is a rule of thumb and battery levels need to be monitored closely. But if you are working 432 Command variants then this will need to be adapted as they have less batteries than a 436. The first sign that your batteries are going into discharge is the UCDs failing to operate correctly and the HF set going into permanent Tx.

Hope this helps

Surely, the answer is "how long is a piece of string?"!

I don't know how many platform types we now have, but each one will be different, with a different power budget.

Very good point! Without giving specs, names and sensitive info away.... what vehicle spec are we talking about? Simple or fully functional platform? Given the amount of kit in a fully functional now.... is it all going to be on at once? Does the original poster work for the Pakastani government? etc etc etc!

You could do yourself a mischief trying to figure this one out! :pissedoff:
