Press Release: digEcor partners with Acro to deliver passenger power

SmartSky - Finally WifI that Wows

digEcor is pleased to work in partnership with Acro Aircraft Seating to provide In-Seat Power solutions to their clients and passengers.

For airlines looking to purchase the Acro Series 3 ST Economy Class Seat or the new generation Series 6, the partnership enables airlines to include pre-integrated USB Power already certified with USB 2.1A Passenger Power.

For airlines already flying the Acro Economy Series 3 and 6 seats who are looking for a low cost, simplistic addition of USB power, digEcor has designed just what you’re looking for… a new to market USB seat spar mod kit including mounted USB power onto the seat leg with the jack integrated into the seat back then applying digEcor’s approved FAA AML-STC. The components include 2 spar mounted boxes – one hosting the USP (USB Seat Power) to drive the double or single USB jacks that are rear facing.

David Withers, Chief Executive of digEcor comments, “Our innovative In-Seat Power Solution delivers a lightweight and affordable installation of passenger power that is designed with reduced components, lowering weight and cost and requiring minimal installation time. digEcor’s 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.”

“digEcor’s innovative passenger power solution fits perfectly into Acro’s vision of looking into things differently when others don’t and exploiting extraspacial design to maximise the ‘micro spaces’ that are often overlooked in traditional aircraft seating” states Chris Brady, Chief Executive of Acro Aircraft Seating.
