Experience design and technology innovation from IFPL at AIX 2018

April 9, 2018

IFPL are leading the way with design and technology innovation with the development of a fresh approach to peripheral integration that can be applied to new seats or as an update to existing seats. Visit IFPL at AIX 2018 in Hamburg at stand #4B20 to experience their ground-breaking developments and see products demonstrated.

IFPL’s aim has been to provide world leading seamless seat integration, whilst maintaining a consistent design language and aesthetic. IFPL’s focus also ensures the ergonomics deliver a truly enhanced passenger experience. This advancement has enabled IFPL to reduce the complexity, weight and cost, therefore delivering a competitive advantage to an airline.

IFPL will be showcasing their latest integrated USB-A product which has been seamlessly integrated into the Mirus Hawk seats arm whilst leveraging KID Systeme’s power supply.

IFPL will be showing its new seat back PED mount, a ground-breaking concept that incorporates IFPL’s design and technology innovation. Customer comfort was the key focus and this PED holder has been designed to maintain eye level regardless of the PED’s size. This is achieved by using horizontal retainers that divide from the centre outwards. This design feature allows the optional inductive charging coil to be located in the centre of the PED mount and maximising the probability that the PED will cover the inductive coil. A combination USB-A and C outlet, is neatly integrated into the PED mount. A further advantage of the seat back mount is that it allows the passenger to keep the tray table clear for food and drink, which in turn enables the passenger to remain watching content whilst eating. IFPL’s PED mount delivers minimal spatial intrusion compared to traditional fold out PED holders, giving the passenger a greater sense of overall space and therefore improving the customer experience.

IFPL has also been working to develop a range of smart tray and seat options that incorporate a unique capacitive touch Passenger Control Unit (PCU) that provides the passenger service functions (i.e. call bell and reading light) into the seat. The unit has been designed to ensure the functions are ergonomically placed at the passenger’s fingertips preventing them from having to search for the functionality in awkward locations. The PCU incorporates an aesthetically stylish, gloss finish.

IFPL’s established range of products and solutions incorporating design and technology innovation will be on stand 4B20 and the expert team from

IFPL will be on hand to discuss any requirement that visitors to AIX 2018 may have.
