Aircraft window specialist ATG has been awarded contracts to supply its Powertech MS2 Window Shade Systems for two BBJ interior projects. Delivery of the two aircraft is slated for the third quarter.
The Powertech MS2 is a modular version of the Powertech II shade, itself an improvement over the existing PowerTech design. Advantages, according to the Boca Raton, Fla.-based company, are greater reliability, faster operation, reduced electro-magnetic interference and “near-silent” movements.
The new motor lifetime is claimed to be approximately 100 times that of the expected shade lifetime use, and a 50-percent-smaller shade rail allows for a larger viewing area and wider area of shade fabric, reducing the potential for light leakage.
