Project: Access Kit for Measurement Device – AC1656

Challenge

Our customer was using a measurement device on the field, but there was an issue with handling this unit. The device manufacturer must have inadvertently missed adding a handle to the design. The workers were often required to climb to reach a certain height to do their job. Without a handle or connection point for a strap, this left the device highly vulnerable to damage.

Solution

Without impairing the functionality of the measurement device, we were able to design an Operating case which provided a rugged handle as well as D-rings for attaching a 4-point harness. Field workers now had options for securing the device. The stiffened screen cover protected the display when not in-use. We also designed the compatible 4-point harness which allowed the unit to rest at a 90-degree angle while in-use.
