Industrial-Automation

Development of Moisture Sensor Prototype with IP-65 Compliance

Client Overview

US-based leaders providing high technology instrumentation solutions for a wide range of applications.

Business Need

  • The client was looking for a design proven partner to help them in cost optimization by improving the design to reduce form factor and the assembly time of the existing moisture sensor

VOLANSYS Contribution

  • Development of next-generation sensor with reduced form factor as per the new dimension requirements
  • Hardware design and development including schematics entry, PCB layout, Gerber release for final design
  • Hardware prototyping and EDVT including PCB fabrication and assembly, EDVT testing and validation with capacitance box by simulating different level of wetness using capacitance box and calibrate the sensor
  • Mechanical enclosure drawing modification and prototyping with SS material, CNC tooling based mechanical proto development, IP65 testing
  • RoHS, CE, and ATEX – Zone 2 pre-compliance for Hazloc compliance
