Alto Aviation unveils line of keypads

Alto Aviation has launched a new line of keypads, called the Alto Acapella series.

The range includes headphone keypads, VIP keypads, Baker DECU replacement keypads and tethered keypads. The switches are designed to provide passengers with the most outstanding listening experience.

Alto’s passenger audio controls are a retrofit friendly solution optimized for smaller cabins with no IFE, or for updating legacy systems. Acapella Series keypads are completely independent of CMS, with discrete logic and no software. No interior modifications are needed. The company says the keypads can be installed on any flat surfaces, siderails, tables and bulkheads, by re-using mounting provisions. Direct fit, custom plating options, as well as DIP switch configurable backlighting colors, are available. The new Alto-Bose QC-15 headphones are available to complete the Alto Acapella headphone audio system.

The company says the keypads are off-the-shelf solutions. “Where other vendors require a custom production per order, our solutions are predefined and in stock for quick delivery,” said Kevin Hayes, vice president of sales and marketing, Alto Aviation.

“Our ability to meet expedited deliveries would be impeded by a typical six-eight week production lead time. So, we took matters into our own hands and now provide customers a turnkey solution. Now our selection has grown to include other keypad variants beyond our initial release. We are so excited to add these keypads to our product offering."
