Aerospace & Renewable Energies :- Portable Electrical Test Unit

Integration of suitable electronics into Pelicase 1400 enclosure

Design Requirements

  • Re-design of prototype so it conformed to ‘design for manufacture’ best practices making production ready.
  • Integration of customers Smart Li-Ion ‘hot swap’ battery backs to enable remote working for sustainable 8 hour periods
  • Integration of active couplers & bond probes – consisting of re-design of the bond probes to ensure they were manufacturable in relation to routing of internal wiring.
  • Overall light weight solution (no more than 7kgs/15lbs) to make it portable

Aerospace & Renewable Energies – Portable Electrical Test Unit

The portable system is deployed for measuring resistance on aircraft & large structures such as wind turbines or infrastructure at risk from lightning strikes – testing bond resistance between structural elements and loop resistance and integrity of cable shields and bonding straps.

Portable, Ruggedized PC Solutions with touchscreen interactivity…….

For those customers looking for a ruggedized PC solution, robust in its design whilst still remaining light in weight for portability, BVM offer our Peli Case PC  design and manufacturing services to provide a ‘system in a case’. Over the many years that BVM have been providing these services, we’ve found no one design is the same as another, so the service we provide for this area of embedded PC design really is specialist and tailored to your exact needs & application.

Unfortunately, these services are not provided to cater for ‘one off’ requirements. They commence with you providing us with a requirement specification around what you need, which will lead onto further technical & commercial discussions and the mutual development of a prototype for you test & sign off against – leading on to the eventual provision of production units.

The above design and configuration is an example of a solution we’ve produced for one of our customers and
will hopefully serve to provide you with an idea of what we can produce.


Why do customers choose our Peli case solutions?

  • They’re a great alternative to rugged laptops or tablets – providing better protection, IP rating (if required) and space for custom electronics and selectable I/O.
  • They’re a good solution for combining instrumentation and computing in one rugged and portable package
  • Good value where a bespoke – rugged embedded computer solution with HMI is being sought, one that can be protected from its immediate environment.


Available Options

Here’s just a selection of parameters we can tailor around your solution :-

  • Use of Pelicase’s wide range of solution sizes to suit all footprint requirements
  • Up to date computing processors platforms ranging from low power Intel Atom to desktop versions of Intel Core i7 (up to 65W TDP)
  • LCD displays in sizes from 7.0” to 21” with resistive or pCAP touch interactivity
  • Connectivity – LTE (4G/5G), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • Variety of storage options concerning solid state devices (SSD’s)
  • Expansion options (from mPCI-E, M.2 to PCI-Express)
  • Bespoke electronics (provided by the customer or designed by BVM)
  • Custom internal cabling
  • Customised internal & external fascia’s to provide interactivity & i/o to the outside world
  • Ingress protection – up to IP67
