A customer wanted to use evolving technology to create a switching & adjustable power supply aimed at teaching in the class room. The brief was simple ‘on a limited budget keep it compact, keep it CE & UL compliant, try to make it look good!’. On a shoe string tooling budget we had the idea that we could keep the electronics encased in sheet metal but use one molding to tie the whole thing together.
Limited Tooling Budget
Using the same plastic part front and back we were able to sand which all of the electronics in the center, integrate a carry handle and feet.
CE & UL Approval
Whilst all of the Power Supply electronics carry there own approvals, the design is internally earthed, ventilation holes baffled and heat sources insulated to pass stringent CE & UL Approvals
Off The Shelf Components
Not everything needs to be designed from scratch! Using off the shelf connectors, switches and LED components drastically reduces time scales and set up costs.
