AKCP, the world’s oldest and largest supplier of networked wired and wireless sensor solutions monitors the aviation maintenance industry.
Aviation repair workshops are part of the critical infrastructure for the aviation industry. Aircraft maintenance is crucial for the safety of passengers, and regulatory compliance. There are resins and paints used for aircraft component repair which must be stored at specific temperatures and/or humidity. This not only applies to their storage, but to the repair process itself. There are certain components that must be repaired while maintaining an acceptable temperature and humidity range. AKCP monitors the aviation maintenance industry to ensure safety and compliance.
Lufthansa Technik – International and GE Aviation Systems – Australia have deployed AKCP monitoring devices and sensors in their aviation repair workshops to ensure compliance with the temperature and humidity requirements for the storage and repair of aircraft parts.
GE Aviation Systems – Australia, have been using AKCP monitoring devices for more than 10 years. They Initially installed sensorProbe8 devices at their main facility in Australia, and several sensorProbe4’s at remote sites. The system is integrated with their ERP system, which collects the sensor data and logs it every 15 minutes. This data is tabulated and provided to regulatory auditors. The units have operated flawlessly for over 10 years. Due to advancements in IT security, GE Aviation Systems are now upgrading their units to the AKCP sensorProbeX+ devices. The SPX+ series of monitoring systems provide enhanced security features, with support for SNMPV3, HTTPS, SSL, MQTTS, encrypted e-mail, and secure connections.
GE Aviation Systems are considering AKCP’s monitoring platform, AKCPro Server. This provides centralized monitoring of all AKCP devices, graphing, alerts, and reports. PDF reports are digitally signed in accordance with the standards for legally binding digital documents, the FDA CFR 21 Part 11. If these PDF documents are edited in any way, the digitally encrypted signature is destroyed rendering the documents inadmissible in court, or for submission to regulatory bodies.
