The generator set PU-613 is a portable air cooled gasoline engine generator that produces 500 watts of 400 cycle, 115 volts, alternating current and up to 80 watts of 28 volt direct current. The engine generator assembly is enclosed in an acoustical housing that diminishes the sound level. Modifications are required on the PU-613 in order to make it suitable as a substitute for the PU-181, PU-278, PU-279, and PU-422. The PU-613 does possess the required electrical characteristics to provide 400 cycle AC and 28 volt DC power for the Teletypewriter Set ANTGC-14, Radio Set ANTRC-27, Radar Beacon TPN-7, and Radar Set ANTPS-21. The power cable and fittings with the Radio Set ANTRC-27 and Radar Set ANTPS-21 are compatible with the PU-613. The power cable and fittings with the Teletypewriter ANTGC-14 and the Radar Beacon ANTPN-7 are not compatible with the PU-613. The PU-613 is 24 pounds heavier than the PU-279 however, the total weight of 63 pounds for the PU-613 allows it to be carried on a pack board as a one-man carry for use with the TPN-7. The reduced sound level of the PU-613 as compared to the PU-279 is highly desirable for the applications in which the TPN-7 is used. Author
