Roles: Lead Mechanical Engineer, Production Support
To help Verdigris Technologies increase production numbers and reach a higher volume of customers, I took the company’s functional prototype consisting of off-the-shelf components and overhauled the design to be more apt for high volume production. The injection molded housings, custom cable assemblies, and branded labels that I designed also improved signal integrity, installation clarity, and brand recognition. During the build of the Verdigris building energy monitoring system at a domestic contract manufacturer, I provided production support for hundreds of units consisting of a main unit, a cosmetic cover, daisy chained current sensors, and custom cable assemblies.
The Verdigris Rev D System features latched connectors and color coded ports and cables for improved safety and ease of installation. Its daisy chained smart current sensors reduces the space required for installation in circuit panels. The move to custom injection molded housings for both the main unit and individual current sensors allows for integration of custom PCBs that reduce the amount of signal noise. Each unit comes with a cosmetic cover that is beautiful enough to live on the wall of an office building.
