Project- Telecom Field Test Set
This project was a collaboration between Jeff Dayman, one of Dayman Design Inc.'s Associate plastics designers, and Consultronics' design team. (now part of EXFO Inc.). The units are used to do line tests for phone, internet, and TV cable installations. The main challenge was to design the plastic enclosure as close as possible to the predefined industrial design but improve mouldability of the plastics, enable good sealing of the unit to IP67, and improve field disassembly capability of the unit, while reducing weight from the existing older design. All goals were met and weight was reduced by 12%. Cost was also reduced compared to their existing unit.
