Engineering, Circuit Board Design & Assembly of a 10-Channel Lighting Controller for the Commercial Lighting Industry
M.A.K.S, Incorporated provides turnkey electronic control solutions including custom engineering, design, manufacturing, and assembly services. This 10-channel lighting controller was developed for our customer in the commercial lighting industry. Due to the recommendation of a previous customer, we received the contract to develop this turnkey project from design and layout of the individual components to final assembly and retail packaging of the electronic portion of the product. This controller is capable of commanding up to ten different electrical loads including lighting, switched receptacles, and thermostats. The control panel is wired to the central breaker box and can then be controlled directly from the panel itself, or via wireless devices. Features of the controller include surge immunity and over-current sensing; a custom designed LCD user interface; the ability to control individual channels or a group of channels to create custom lighting scenes or saved energy conservation settings; incandescent, CFL, or inductive load capabilities; and energy harvesting rocker pads and switches that do not require batteries.
We performed all of the embedded software design on this complex control. PCB assemblies were produced with SMT assembly with added selective soldering for thru hole components. The finished assembly consists of the control PCB and user interface PCB, measures 9.532" x 5.382" x 3.075", and meets all applicable IPC, IP, UL, FCC, and NAFTA standards for manufacturing, consumer safety and export. Assemblies were tested for functionality and packaged in retail packaging before shipment.
