BugLab came to Peterman Design Firm to design a new enclosure for a new electronics/sensor package. Our challenge was to create a new design that was easy to take a part and maintain while remaining splash proof and usable in the lab. Existing enclosured relied on RTV and other types of adhesive to remain sealed and functional, which made repairs and changing components difficult.
We created a product that use gasketing and eliminated the need for any adhesives. We also created a form that protected the product from the most common liquid intrusion issues, sitting in puddles and having liquid poured on them.
Our design met all requirements and had the additional benefit of being a modular design allowing for part sharing between this product and future products in development.
