CANSAS™ – Cabin Area Network System and Services

Cabin management with a tap: safe, comfortable, modular

One reliable, central control panel for nearly all aircraft functions related to the cabin. This includes cabin illumination, passenger sings and passenger calls, galley and lavatory controls, or cabin functions like fire protection and water waste systems, including the integration of third-party applications. A modern cabin management system bundles all functions and is highly modular and scalable. CANSAS™ by Diehl Aerospace offers everything. Connected in a ring topology, it provides a highly reliable communication backbone that interfaces with all cabin functions. Touchscreens, so-called flight attendant panels, form the main interface of the cabin management to the crew. This is where system information is bundled and represented graphically. CANSAS™ – mature technology and system design with an intuitive simple user interface.
