Cooling Systems

Abu Dhabi Airport

Between March and August 2016 PS Automation produced 166 smart quarter-turn actuator series PS-AMS PSQ for the airport Abu Dhabi. The actuators control mobile airconditioning systems in airplanes.

In Abu Dhabi temperatures reach more than +40 C° in summer. After the landing of an airplane at the airport in Abu Dhabi the passenger cabins must be cooled down artificially due to the extreme desert heat.


After an airplane has landed the mobile airconditiong systems are connected to the plane to keep it cool inside. The actuators PS-AMS PSQ control the valve and hence the flow of cool air.
