Smart Grid Solutions : Circuit Fault Indicators
- Design Implementation
- Mechanical Design
- Detailed Design / DFM
- Production Support
Smart Grid Solutions approached Pump Studios looking to develop their own proprietary line of circuit fault indicators. Their request was to develop both overhead and underground circuit fault indicators that provide best-in-class functionality and usability. They also needed to be uniquely their own.
Pump supported the full design and production process, working closely with the electrical team at Smart Grid Solutions to ensure easy access to properly sized batteries, adequate sealing of the internal electronics, and good visibility for fault indication.
The overhead indicator includes both motorized mechanical and optical LED indicators, and provides direct access to the replaceable batteries. The underground unit is compact, well sealed, and carries the Smart Grid Solutions brand without compromising functionality.
After validating the functional design with prototypes, Pump supported the project through tooling, production, and product launch.
