Astronics introduces anti-microbial outlet units for its aircraft in-seat power system


The enhanced version of Astronics’s in-seat power outlet units will be developed using the latest technology to create an anti-microbial formulation.

Astronics Corporation, an exhibitor and Silver Partner at FTE APEX Virtual Expo 2021, has announced the launch of new anti-microbial aircraft in-seat power outlet units developed under its ongoing product innovation programme.

The enhanced version of Astronics’ in-seat power outlet units will be developed using the latest technology to create an anti-microbial formulation, and will be available from Q3 2021. This includes the EmPower® system 110VAC, Type A USB, Type C USB and all combination Outlet Units. The company expects that all EmPower system Outlet Units will be produced with the new anti-microbial formulation by early 2022.

Dennis Markert, Director of Business Development at Astronics, commented: “We are a customer centric organisation, which means both responding to our customers’ needs and identifying solutions beyond what they are requesting. We began reimagining our products early on in light of the pandemic. We recognised that, in addition to the many safety features already included in our Outlet Units, providing anti-microbial touchpoints would benefit the entire supply chain as well as airlines’ and passengers.

“As the market leading cabin power supplier, we look to stay at the leading edge of innovative solutions that both transform and enhance the travel experience.”
