Heating Control Unit for Aviation Systems

The heating control unit monitors and controls the electric heating elements of an aircraft, such as those for water pipes, drain masts, floor plates or fittings. They can also regulate the air outlets and vents in the air conditioning system. The control units are available with eight or twelve channels as required. All the necessary heating parameters are saved in a configuration module, which establishes a connection between the data and control unit. This enables you to service the control unit locally and to replace it if necessary.

Jenoptik heating control units also monitor the electrical wiring of the connected heaters and detect damage in the cable insulation, which prevents voltage overloads and associated failures. You also have the option of connecting the heating control unit to an operating panel with a display, the cabin communication system, or the aircraft maintenance system.
