Teledyne Controls has extended the reach of its ACES Cabin Air Monitoring System, gaining EASA STC approval for installation on the A320 aircraft series.
Teledyne Controls, a subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies, is an aircraft data management business. Teledyne ACES is an autonomous solution that enables aircraft operators to monitor, measure and analyse air quality in the cabin and flight deck. Teledyne ACES, which is also FAA and CAA certified for the A320 family and FAA certified for the Boeing 737 series, has been implemented at four carriers in the USA, UK and Australia.
“As passengers are getting more concerned than ever about cabin air quality, having a cabin air monitoring system in place on board their aircraft will become a key differentiator for the airlines,” said Steve Sammis, vice president of aircraft upgrade solutions for Teledyne Controls. “With this new EASA STC, A320 European operators can now monitor cabin air quality on their aircraft with a certified solution ready to deploy.”
With wireless connectivity to a secure cloud service portal, Teledyne ACES laboratory-grade sensor technology continuously monitors and records the air quality in the cabin and flight deck for potentially harmful contaminants. The air quality data collected during flight is available in real-time on any mobile device through the ACES mobile app and via secure web access to the ACES Cloud Service Portal. The ACES Cloud Service Portal provides configurable dashboards, custom alerts and comprehensive reports designed to enable the operator to validate the air quality in the aircraft, identify emerging issues and document maintenance efforts.
Teledyne ACES was specifically designed for the aviation industry. It combines Teledyne Technologies’ expertise in air quality and gas monitoring, with Teledyne Controls’ decades of experience in designing, manufacturing and certifying aircraft data management and connectivity systems.
