Electronic Product (Re)Design and Certification Support

New Product Design

With many years of experience in delivering great business value through our designs, we are in the best position to be your end-to-end trusted partner. We assess your idea and work with you to determine its technical and financial feasibility, so that you can make an informed Go/No Go decision.

After a “Go” decision, we develop the requirements for a minimum viable product in consultation with you, and closely work with you from design through to prototyping, testing and production readiness. One major objective of our design is to minimise the cost of producing and transporting the end product and our engineers always keep this in mind while working on your design. To ensure that the project is managed well, we establish a governance framework based on which, we involve you and keep you continuously informed of progress and achievements. We put in place mitigation and contingency actions for all identified high severity risks.

Product Certification

Most countries have laws and regulations that govern the sale and usage of electronic products in their markets. We provide advice on the applicable laws and regulations and undertake to get your product certified for Electromagnetic compatibility and other compliance requirements by authorised laboratories. This may involve hardware and firmware modifications based on a pre-compliance test, which is carried out before the final approval testing.

At appropriate stages in our design process, EMC requirements are considered and built into the design. Our prototypes are subjected to a pre-compliance test, the results of which are used for preparing the product for the final test in a designated laboratory.

Troubleshooting And Repair

Imagine discarding your product even before its life-time. It will result in an erosion of the ROI in your product development. Sometimes inadvertent design errors make products fail in the field. Bring us anyone’s design. We will fix it for you.

Understand Problem

    • Gathering the following:
      • Complete & accurate details of symptoms
      • Limitations & constraints of the environment in which the product generally operates
      • Intended way the product should perform
      • All available technical documentation including source code

Reproduce the Problem

  • Reproduction of the environment in which the product generally operates
  • Operating the product in that environment till it fails

Determine Root Cause

  • Gathering comprehensive data of the hardware and software behaviour at the time of failure
  • Comprehensive analysis of data at the point of failure
  • Root cause determination
  • Repair planning

Repair and Test

  • Repairing and testing sample units

Electronic Partners with Duress provide a comprehensive solution for Lone Workers that gives reassurance to the user and peace of mind to the employer, a complete Duty of Care. Duress is a safety platform comprising of core elements – Duress App, which runs on phones, and Duress Falcon, which is a standalone watch. Both are managed through the Duress portal, a web based platform allowing organisations to manage their users, set who is to receive notifications internally, and to review any incidents.

Duress allows users to quickly and discretely trigger an activation by activating the app on their phone, clicking the Duress bluetooth button, or by activating the watch. When activated, Duress streams live video, audio and location data through to our 24/7 Operations centre, who can see and hear in detail what is happening and escalate to emergency services if required.

In addition, the app allows users to set timers, or shake, slide or remove earphones to declare an emergency. Duress watch also allows for welfare timers, automatic check-ins, and fall detection.

Duress Falcon is a discrete, wearable duress alarm that ensures your people’s safety with the power to alert for help, dispatch emergency services & notify contacts, all at a tap of their wrist.

Multi-Functional Wearable. Duress Falcon can be worn in two convenient ways that will help maintain employee safety while remaining discrete to operate.
We also have available the Duress Card/Button, which works with the Duress App installed on smart phones. It is held close to the phone and when simply tapped, live video, audio and location tracking will commence. The user does not have to pick up the phone, unlock it, locate and open the app, and activate it.

Conference Delegates Attendance Management

The Automated Conference Attendance Management System uses “Internet of Things” technology to indicate the presence of delegates at the conference venue through base stations or readers positioned at strategic locations. Delegates will be issued with name badges that are smart and embedded with sensors that can be recognized by readers. The readers help to identify and notify the presence of individuals at specific locations.

HOW IT WORKS

• Each conference session will have its own login; On login, the session leader will be able to see all the delegates registered for the session.

• As delegates enter sessions and occupy seats, their presence is sensed by scanners installed in the room and registered in a database.

• Attendance data of sessions is automatically sent to
a central administrator for further processing, reporting and storing.

• Information about delegates registered and attending each session along with other conference information will be displayed on a dashboard at the registration desk.

BENEFITS

• Increases delegate experience and satisfaction – Delegate presence at conference sessions is unobtrusively noticed and maintained thus avoiding queuing and waiting at session entrances for badge scanning or any other means of registering attendance.

• Provides authentic proof of attendance – Many professional institutions allow their members to use their attendance at conferences to claim education credits required for maintenance and upkeep of their status in their professions e.g. certifications.

• Increases reliability and is cost effective – Implementing a technology based automatic attendance solution with smart badges and readers is more reliable and cost effective
than bar code scanners and other means of registering attendance.

• Use of collected data – The data collected can be used for multiple purposes, such as soliciting feedback on sessions and the overall conference, providing delegates with more targeted communication and for providing information for analytics.
