Satair and Crane Aerospace & Electronics have signed an agreement covering the distribution of Crane Aerospace & Electronics’ Tyre Pressure Indicating System (TPIS) for the A320neo and A330neo aircraft families.
Using Crane Aerospace & Electronics’ SmartStem® passive, wireless technology, these TPIS systems will improve operator maintenance cost by reducing the time required for daily tire pressure checks while delivering a significant improvement to reliability and accuracy and helping ensure safe operations in all conditions. Certified as standard line fit on all A330neos earlier this year, a similar system is planned for certification on the A320neo in 2020. In addition, both systems will be available for retrofit to lower the maintenance cost on exisiting aircraft.
The agreement marks an evolution in the relationship between Satair and Crane Aerospace & Electronics, who signed their first agreement in 2015 covering the distribution of a new Landing Gear Control Interface Unit for the A320 program family.Email Post to a Friend
