Innova Aerospace chooses Alto’s Cadence Switch System for Citation 560 modernization program


Alto Aviation has been chosen by Innova Aerospace to provide cabin control switching for the Citation 560 modernization program.

The Alto Cadence Switch System (CSS) is designed to include modular discrete switch assemblies to control speaker and headphone audio.

Additional modules are also attached within the same custom bezel housing for cabin lighting control and video source select. An auxiliary audio input and USB charging port is also included in the switch panel configuration.

“The new Alto CSS provides Innova maximum flexibility to make last-minute configuration changes by adding or removing various options as desired by our customers,” said Dave Miner, director of operations at Innova’s site in Perryville, Missouri.

“This unique design provides our technicians with the ability to make changes without the need to send switch panels back to the manufacturer for expensive software updates.”

“Our new CSS is a perfect cabin management solution for this Citation 560 retrofit program,” said Steve Lord, senior technical sales manager at Alto.

“The switch panels interface to an Alto digital amplifier with PA to provide premium cabin speaker and headphone audio. The CSS also interfaces directly to an optional video display for source selection without the need for an expensive remote A/V switch box.

“Switching for cabin lighting and galley appliances is provided by an Alto eight-channel relay controller that interfaces to the switch panel modules.”

“Alto Aviation is honored to partner with Innova Aerospace on this very exciting multi-aircraft program,” said Kevin Hayes, vice president of sales and marketing at Alto.

“Innova realized the significant value the Alto CSS provides, and their recent multiple system order confirms their confidence in Alto Aviation’s cabin audio and switching systems.”
