NORD-MICRO SELECTS MEMSCAP'S
NEW GENERATION OF PRESSURE TRANSDUCERS
NORD-MICRO qualifies MEMSCAP latest Pressure Transducers for major commercial aircraft cabin pressure control systems
Grenoble, France and Skoppum, Norway, June 13, 2017 - MEMSCAP (NYSE Euronext: MEMS), the leading provider of innovative solutions based on MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) technology, today announces that Nord-Micro GmbH & Co. OHG (Nord-Micro) has selected MEMSCAP to provide pressure transducers for their cabin pressure control systems.
Headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany, Nord-Micro is a well-established global player in the aerospace business and the world leader in Cabin Pressure Control Systems (CPCS) for large commercial aircraft. With more than 40 years of experience, continuous growth and improvement, Nord-Micro today is a well-known 1st Tier OEM supplier and the reliable partner of choice for major commercial customers all around the world.
Cabin Pressure Control Systems from Nord-Micro provide safety, high reliability, low operating costs, low crew workload and high passenger comfort. Nord-Micro Cabin Pressure Control Systems incorporate intelligent software that provides optimum cabin pressure control based on numerous aircraft parameters. Individually controlled outflow valves can even optimize the ventilation of cabin air based on cabin layout and passenger load.
The MEMSCAP product baseline relies on MEMSCAP SP82 sensor technology and on company's proprietary transducers calibration methods. As an offspring of the recent Norwegian R&D funded project, MEMSCAP has developed a new version of its SP82 pressure sensors with important improvements in terms of stability and accuracy.
In addition to its former and current collaboration with Nord-Micro with TPS3100 products, MEMSCAP will now supply Nord-Micro a version of its TPS1200 pressure transducer, as well as a new analog output transducer named TP400. These sensors have been designed and qualified to be fully integrated within Nord-Micro Cabin Pressure Control Systems and will be qualified for the use in a major commercial single-aisle aircraft program.
