The Alto Cadence Switch Series (CSS) has passed a milestone, surpassing 100 business jet installations. Alto Aviation’s CSS is a range of customisable cabin switch panels featuring discrete logic and no software, designed to reduce costs for customers by minimising or eliminating the need for woodwork in installation.
CSS features modular, discrete switch assemblies. The modules come in sizes from one to six positions and include USB charging, an HDMI port, Bluetooth interface and ordinance signage. CSS is fit-compatible with former CMS/IFE switch offerings. By defining a bezel that fits an existing cut-out, Alto may be able to provide a CMS/IFE upgrade solution without changing the woodwork.
All installations have been customised explicitly for retrofit aircraft, to replace obsolete, non-serviceable or broken passenger controls, in many cases repurposing functionality and updating CMS capabilities.
Many leading business aviation MROs have installed CSS in a wide variety of private aircraft, including light jets and turboprops; medium, large and bizliner cabins; and special-mission aircraft.
“We are proud of surpassing our 100th unique aircraft CSS project milestone,” said Kevin Hayes, vice president of sales and marketing at Alto Aviation. “The CSS has been instrumental in satisfying the replacement requirements of legacy systems. What an accomplishment for the Alto team. We appreciate all the customers who have supported us and continue supporting us along this journey and look forward to many more installations in the future.”
