AESYS FIDS for Accra Kotoka International Airport (Ghana)

Jul 26, 2018

With a global experience of more than four decades, it could be said that in the last few years Aesys has further reinforced its position in the field of communication and display technologies also by delivering its products to the airport sector. Lately, new airports have been added to Aesys’s projects, for instance Houari Boumediene Airport, Djibouti–Ambouli International Airport, Baghdad International Airport or Addis Ababa Bole International Airport.


Taking advantage of the long experience in much more extreme rail environment, in the last years Aesys has concretely expanded its solutions and portfolio to more protected Airport indoor terminals”, said Paolo Landi, senior airport business development manager for Aesys, “where our industrial heavy duty displays developed for very harsh environment, may benefit from internal conditioned climate and expect therefore an even much longer life”.


Recently, Aesys has been awarded with a project also for the Accra airport. Its mission is to provide FIDS 24/7 displays that once installed, they do not need to be removed anymore from their location, not even in case of maintenance: all display electronics (power supplies, PC, sensors, boards etc.) have been fixed on lateral special extractable drawers. To swap them it takes less than 2 minutes, and it can be done by a single person, avoiding to secure the area, place scaffolds, insurance costs, a 3 people team, swap the units and bring them to the external lab for repair. 

This is the future of Passenger information displays” continues Paolo “since Aesys displays are supposed to have an amazing low failure rate, but even if something may ever occur, this solution grants fastest MTTR ever, and reduce almost to zero the costs of intervention and related risks”. “Moreover, also preliminary diagnostic on field is not necessary anymore, since swapping all electronics at once, automatically ensures immediate operability for the display”.
