ADB Safegate launched ACE3, a new distributed control and monitoring solution for airfield lighting control and monitoring systems (ALCMS).
The ACE3 has the potential for up to eight times the input/output capacity as the ACE2. It is backward compatible with the company’s ACE1, ACE2 and Liberty DCMU units. It is the first such unit to offer a full-color LCD touchscreen display, as well as multiple communication protocols and connection types.
“The ACE3 represents the heart of ADB Safegate’s airfield lighting distributed control system,” says Joe Pokoj, CEO Americas, ADB Safegate Americas, LLC. “Distributed control technology is more cost-effective and expandable than traditional centralized control, and fewer components and interchangeable parts make it easier to install and maintain. The ACE3 has been designed to meet the top priority monitoring needs of our airport customers.”
The ACE3 has been selected by Boston Logan International (BOS) and Toronto International (YYZ) airports as part of their constant current regulator modernization programs. Boston is installing approximately 100 units while Toronto has given ADB Safegate a contract for more than 230 units.
