digEcor has teamed up with HAECO Cabin Solutions to offer an innovative approach to airlines wanting to enhance the passenger experience with in-seat power.
Its In-Seat Power Solution is now compatible with HAECO Cabin Solutions Vector seat platform, via either a pre-integrated installation or retrofit solution.
“HAECO Cabin Solutions, as part of HAECO Americas, provides interiors design engineering, certification, and retrofit project integration, as well as the manufacture of a full line of interiors products,” said David Kelly, VP marketing and strategy for HAECO.
Commenting on the partnership with digEcor, Kelly added: “These products make use of innovative materials and lower part count to reduce weight. Through their efficient design, these products also offer greater durability and lower lifetime maintenance cost.”
The two companies have worked together closely to create a custom design for the HAECO Vector Seat Series using the digEcor seat mod kit, designing the solution onto the seat leg and adapting the seat design. The components included in the custom design fit into two spar-mounted boxes (housing either single or double USB jacks) with a USP (USB Seat Power Box) that powers both boxes.
Describing the In-Seat Power Solution as a “lightweight and affordable installation of passenger power”, digEcor’s CEO, David Withers, stated that the “solution offers installation modularity, resulting in the best fitting solution for airlines. With such an innovative solution, airlines can essentially introduce passenger power to their cabin with an overnight install.”
