Teledyne Controls has obtained EASA Supplemental Type Certification (STC) approval for installation of its ACES Cabin Air Monitoring System on the Airbus A320 aircraft series.
Teledyne ACES is an autonomous solution that enables aircraft operators to monitor, measure and analyse air quality in the cabin and flight deck, to help them ensure a safe and comfortable flying experience for their passengers and crew. Teledyne ACES, which is also FAA- and CAA-certified for the Airbus A320 family and FAA-certified for the Boeing 737 series, has been implemented at four carriers in the US, UK, and Australia.
“As passengers are getting more concerned than ever about cabin air quality, having a cabin air monitoring system in place onboard 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 extensive 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, which provides configurable dashboards, custom alerts, and comprehensive reports that enable the operator to validate the air quality in the airplane, identify emerging issues and document maintenance efforts.
Teledyne ACES was specifically designed for the aviation industry. It combines Teledyne Technologies’ world-leading expertise in air quality and gas monitoring, along with Teledyne Controls’ decades of experience in designing, manufacturing, and certifying aircraft data management and connectivity systems.
