Are you developing a new product that needs electronics to get it to work?
- Can’t find anything to buy off the shelf that does what you want?
- Are you still at the prototype stage and proving the principles?
- Do you have an existing system which needs extra hardware to extend its capabilities?
These are all reasons why you are considering using 19 inch racking, and this is where I can help.
How the Custom Design Service Works.
First of all, we do not make 19 inch racks, nor do we design electronics. We design a custom tray/shelf which allows your specific components to be arranged exactly how you want them.
Contact us for a chat on 01803 363 171 or 07760 617 944 about your specific requirements, or email, or fill in the contact form.
When we both feel confident that a design is possible, I will ask for basic information such as component dimensions, tray depth, height of tray in U units. I cannot make PCB layouts but we can help arrange your components in the manner that makes sense with mounting holes and ventilation holes etc. Do you need a lid? Do you have specific requirements for swapping out some components?
I will then send you a Design Proposal and upon this being confirmed I will design the tray and component layout in 3D using SolidWorks solid modelling software. I will email updates of the design in the form of JPEG images and PDFs of Drawings till you are happy with the work. We can also send you an E Drawing of the design which allows you to see the work in 3D on your PC. We will produce a full drawing set and DXFs of Flat Patterns for your favourite sheet metal shop to produce a prototype. If necessary will make revisions as needed till you are happy.
How much does this service cost?
Devon 3D CAD is a small business with low overheads so our rates are very reasonable. I will give you an estimate of the time needed to accomplish the design at a reasonable hourly rate. We are not VAT registered so will not charge VAT.
