Schott & Aviation
Components for comfort and safety
Every passenger flying inside an Airbus or Boeing comes into contact with products from schott, either directly or indirectly: innovative lighting solutions offer attractive design and pleasant light conditions, optoelectronic components and glass-to-metal connections higher safety.
||1) Datacom |
For weight reduction and increasing security reasons, multicore optical data cables have already been developed for on-board databus solutions.
||2) Feedthroughs for fuel tank sensors|
Fuel tank sensors measure the fuel levels directly within the tank. Sensor systems within fuel tanks are exposed to kerosene as well, as temperature fluctuations, and thus need to be protected hermetically.
|| 3) Transistor outlines (to) for transceivers|
Transceivers are signal transmitting and data receiving units that are a vital part of any data communication network. TO Packages house optical signal transmitting/receiving electronic units that need to be protected from humidity and other negative influences.
||4) Mirona™ |
In front of a light background, Mirona™ appears as a transparent pane of glass. In front of a dark surface, it acts as a mirror, providing a silvery, esthetic brilliance. As a result, Mirona™ opens up unlimited fantastic design options.
||5) Contour lights|
Side emitting fiber optics are used to create a unique, linear, homogeneous illumination with flammability proven material. RGB LED light sources enable the application to create light scenarios within the cabin.
||6) Emergency lights|
The combination of LED and side emitting fibers enable cabin designers to use the floor path marking system as an additional design object, rather than a purely functional emergency system.
||7) Glass basins|
Glass wash basins for elegant sanitary facilities. Different shapes and colors are possible according
to customer specifications. For safety reasons, all basins are, of course, thermally tempered.
||8) Gallery applications|
Glass ceramic cooktop and fiber optic lighting components that fulfill special thermal requirements allow for various applications from cooling to cooking in challenging environments.
Moodlighting will be created through the latest generation of LED technology with the
capability of endless length and highest homogeneity and intensity.
||10) Holopro™ |
The patented HoloPro™ technology makes it possible to project images or movies onto antireflective glass during both daylight or night-time, otherwise the material is transparent.
||11) Daylight simulation|
Ultra-flat panels driven by LEDs or backlighted opaque surfaces in the ceiling simulate daylight atmosphere in the cabin. Ultra-flat panels and Opalika® surfaces provide diffuse lighting and simulate daylight atmosphere in the cabin.
||12) Transistor outlines (to) for transceivers|
Transceivers are signal transmitting and data receiving units that are a vital part of any data communication network.
TO Packages house optical signal transmitting/receiving electronic units that need to be protected from humidity and other negative influences.
||13) DC/DC Converter packages |
DC/DC converters convert aircraft voltage that is generated in the engines to any required voltages of the final electronic devices, e.g. cockpit instruments. Hermetic packages for DC/DC converters protect the electronic device from harsh environments.
||14) LC Smartglass™|
Simply turning on the power switch changes the LC Smartglass™ from translucent white into a visually transparent display and offers creative design options, as well as private spheres on demand.
||15) Lightpoints™ |
LightPoints™ offer the unique ability to allow LEDs to float and glow inside glass and the power supply elements are invisible. By triggering the single leds, an informative aspect can be added to the application.
