The Sonnis control system which is a type of SMGCS, has been developed to the highest specification in terms of quality and reliability, some benefits of Sonnis control is its accessibility and simplicity after its installation has been completed.

An integrated control system

Sonnis control has been developed using global industry standard, high-class Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) equipment suitable for Non-Precision, CAT I, II and III operations.

A modular, expandable software database, has been designed as a platform for every control system brought into service. By utilising industry standard interfaces, the Sonnis control system can integrate with third party equipment and offer the freedom for you the client to make decisions based upon the specific needs of the airport.
