TECHNICAL EXPERTISE

Being a specialist boutique engineering consultancy we do what we do well to the highest level. Everyone within our organisation, and any specialist external contractors we engage, have extensive industry experience ensuring you are genuinely adding experts to your team.

Electronic Product Design

When it comes to electronic product design, it’s not just about the technical side of things. By fully understanding the big picture of what you seek to achieve, the most appropriate development path may be determined and adverse legacy issues avoided.

The industry or sector you work in is usually not relevant. What matters is whether your development project requires the kind of expertise we offer. We are also comfortable accepting highly sensitive projects whether for commercial or security reasons – a white label service is available if required.

We provide expertise in:

• Prototype research and development

• PCB (circuit board) design

• Microcontroller and sensor development

• Low voltage electrical design

• Component selection & substitution

• 3D CAD modelling

• Fabrication drawings

• Embedded software (Firmware) development

• Human Machine Interface design

• Electromagnetic compatibility

 

Control & Automation of Building Services

The products and systems we have designed can be found in many different buildings and applications in New Zealand and internationally. For example, the results of our work can be found in high security, health, manufacturing, and educational facilities; airports, commercial buildings, factories, processing plants and utility buildings. We have an in-depth understanding of the unique requirements different types of buildings and building functions have on specification, design and management.

We provide expertise in:

• Power management

• PC based SCADA systems

• Lighting control

• C-bus energy management & lighting control

• C-bus network automation

• Water control systems

• Human Machine Interface design

• Embedded software (Firmware) development

• Microcontroller and sensor development

• Industrial network interfacing

Industrial Motor Control

We have in-depth experience in the control of AC motors in a variety of industries and applications. While we have previously been involved in the design and development of variable speed drives, our work in this area is now primarily related to resolving technical performance issues of existing products and systems.

We provide expertise in:

• Waveform algorithms & analysis

• Power converters / variable speed drives

• Performance analysis & fault investigation

• Electro-discharge Machining (EDM) detection & analysis

• Bearing protection solutions

Electro-mechanical Systems Integration

We don’t need to rely on good communication between teams of specialist mechanical and electrical engineers to achieve market leading solutions – as mechatronics engineers we are qualified and experienced in both disciplines. This helps to reduce time and costly errors as the entire system, and how each part will integrate into the whole, is considered and designed for from the outset.

We provide expertise in:

• Prototype research and development

• Thermal (heat) management solutions

• Industrial network interfacing

• LED display systems

• Electromagnetic compatibility

• Equipment enclosure layout & design
