OLED cabin display sign

In aircrafts or helicopters, the new trend to inform passengers is materialized by the CABIN DISPLAY SIGNS designed by Madelec Aero. This new concept, offering a modern and updated product, is intended to display information or instructions to passengers and crew throughout with an OLED screen. This is a new way to draw their attention.
The CABIN DISPLAY SIGNS has been designed to replace many traditional information panel signs by a single equipment able to provide signs on requests and to display them on relevant screen.
The OLED display module (screen + printed circuit board) is fully integrated into a mechanical housing. The front face finish, as usual, may be adapted to customer requirements with different painting colors, treatments or VIP finishes.
The OLED screen insures a better visibility of information compared to older lighted labels or placards (better clarity enabling readability from large distances).
The possibility to display successive information on the same area/screen.
one single equipment may be used for different applications/locations and information (I.e different languages, advertising, Airline logo, passenger name !).
a single equipment may be used with many signs possible and displayed on request.
easily programmed to display pre-loaded pictures of signs on crew order or according to sequential mode (i.e dynamic scrolling effect). App under development to be able to walk down the cabin aisle so to program info direct via Tablet or other divice.
Only one reference (PNR) for multiple signs loaded.

LED coloured tube lights

12v, 28v and 115v 400hz
Continuous advances in LED technology have resulted in high brightness LEDs being readily available. It is possible to utilise the latest high brightness LEDs to provide washes of coloured light whenever the main cabin lights are in Dim or Low settings.
Using 2015 LEDs, colour matching is maintained to within very small levels of deviation.
Available in Single colour or multicoloured configurations.
Madelec Aero LED Tubelights are designed to be directly powered from the aircraft 115v 400hz DC supply.

Intergrated ballast PSU and controller interface.
Therefore possible to remove existing ballast from Aircraft.
Patented system. Ultra Clean Linear power supply.
T5 and T8 sizes.
With one row of white LEDs and one row of a colour within the same tube.
Gives the possibility to fade from white to colour using existing dimmer system, CIDS or OEU interface.
Therefore creating a more affordable and less complicated option to a full mood lighting system.

NEW LED Flat Panels.

A range of LED flat panels in white or white and colour options, to compliment existing T800 LED tubes.
Excellent light output and homogeneity.
Galley way and entryway lighting

LED Technology.

The LED is a solid state electronic device, there are no fragile filaments or gas discharge processes to fail.
Madelec’s In-house expertise in the fields of drive electronics, thermal management and light capture has resulted in LED based products achieving 50,000 hours of service life before degrading to 70% initial light output.
This compares to 15,000 hours for standard fluorescent lamps and 3,000 hours for halogen lamps.
The high reliability and long life properties attained result in lighting systems with significantly reduced whole life cost.
High system efficiency levels results in typically 40% power savings compared to fluorescent and 80% savings compared to halogen, more if the lamps are used in air conditioned environments.
