Design av elektronikkapsling: Modulär kapsling för mätvärdesomvandlare

Abstract [en]

This is a thesis project conducted during the spring of 2014 for Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design Engineering. The work includes 15 credits. The assignment was to try to develop a new enclosure for a serial conversion device sold by Hugo Tillquist AB. A conversion device is a product that monitors the status of the electricity distribution grid. The project aims to investigate the re-quirements for an electronics enclosure and the needs that are the basis for the claims. The goal of development is to provide a manufacturing base form of a solidmodel of an electronic housing for transducers. This is to minimize complexity of the product and to make production cost-effective. This has been achieved through the collection of background information, context investigation. This study formed the basis for a design specification that dictates what the product will do and how. With the aid of the design specification ideas have been generated, by using creative methods that support idea generation such as morphological matrix and random words. Later, ideas and partial solutions are combined to various concepts supported by style board. Sketches have been widely used in idea generation and forwardimportantly in concept generation. To select a final concept was used as a balanced elimination matrix to compare how well the concepts corresponded to the requirements of the design specification. A rough cost estimate for the cost to put the new housing production was developed. This is to ensure that the new prolowered product costs related to housing. Results of this work were an enclosure consisting of modules that are pieced together after the current circuit board to be enclosed. The modules are held together to each other with the help of snap fasteners. The enclosure minimizes installation time and keeps a high modularization level, which means that if it is desired, a new variant is easy to develop. The enclosure is proposed to be produced by means of injection molding to manufacture the high precision snap fasteners require. So that the enclosure will be robust, flame retardant, heat dissipative and electrically isolated the manufacturer should select a plastic material, preferably glass fiber reinforced polyamide.
