The client is a manufacturer of products designed to monitor the energy efficiency of lighting, motors, refrigeration and air conditioning. The client had developed a new motor controller PCB and needed to house it within a robust enclosure, able to meet the demands of being used in tough environments.
After discussion with the client, it was agreed that the enclosure would be constructed from a proprietary heatsink which would be used as the chassis and then clad with a wraparound sheet metal case. This would result in a custom design that needed only a low investment and which would still be identifiable with the styling of the rest of the clients’ product range.
Hillside Design developed the product through to manufacture using 3D CAD, prepared the necessary documentation for manufacturing, as well as documenting the technical construction file.
