Our Airports team is concluding another successful inter airport Europe which saw the launch of our new Series 2500+ frequency converter, as well as fruitful meetings with customers, suppliers and the media.
This was the 20th year of the bi-annual show, which this year attracted some 600 exhibitors from more than 40 countries. During the show, which got underway on Tuesday and wraps up today, we demonstrated our innovative in-ground technologies, the highlight of which was the launch of our Series 2500+ converter on Wednesday.
The 2500+, which is designed for use with a 400Hz modular coiler, (PowerPack I-connect), guarantees 500% overload at the gate, compared to just 400% common in existing systems. The extra capacity ensures aircraft services are maintained at the gate, and is sufficient to meet the growing capacity demands of larger aircraft in the years ahead.
The 2500+ can be installed horizontally on passenger bridges, or vertically on the apron. In both cases, the unit is virtually identical, thereby lowering operating costs for customers. It is also compatible with European and North American power requirements, and has been designed to withstand the high ambient temperatures of the Middle East.
Alongside the launch of the Series 2500+, we also released a new software package, Cavotec Skyway, which allows operators to remotely access the unit via a PC, tablet or smartphone.
Our thanks to the organisers for another highly worthwhile and well-run event. No doubt we'll be back in Munich in 2017 for the next inter airport Europe.
