Heads Up Innovation

Pre-Recorded Announcement Machines (PRAMs)

PBS600 Digital PRAM

The PBS600 Digital PRAM provides studio-quality passenger briefings in up to 63 languages, as well as optional boarding music, without the problems associated with tape-based units. Message selection is easy, thanks to a large high-contrast LCD display and an industrial-quality keypad. Designed as a single unit with no moving parts, the PBS600 can be flush-mounted or surface-mounted in cabin bulkheads. It can also be easily reprogrammed with a PCMCIA card without removing the unit.

Digital PRAM

The PBS700 takes PRAM functionality to the next level.  Besides providing passenger safety announcements and boarding music, it can provide customized inflight messaging based on the takeoff and landing locations and phase of flight. Flight attendant workload is reduced by automatically triggering messages from discrete inputs from the aircraft. A generous touch screen and keypad allow for capacitive touch or tactile switch navigation. The PBS700 script, boarding music, and route tables can be updated either by USB or Ethernet connectivity.

Digital Controllers

This unit provides a “Set and Forget” climate control for your turbine engine aircraft. The digital controller governs the heating and air conditioning systems, automatically switching to outside air to regulate temperature as a function of altitude. This unit also automatically closes bleed air valves and turns off air conditioning compressors in the event of loss of engine or generators, respectively. It also features dual climate zone controls. Click here for more information. (Certification/Compliance: 14 CFR Part 21, RTCA/DO-160C)

DC-100 Environmental Controller

This digital controller is designed for turbine engine bleed air environmental heating systems. The unit monitors duct and cabin temperature to ensure comfortable flight crew and passenger compartments. (Certification/Compliance: 14 CFR Part 21, RTCA/DO-160C, RTCA/DO-178A, non-essential criticality)
