This second tier automotive customer needed a replacement for a micro-miniature switch in a visor vanity mirror lighting application. The switch had to be low power (12 Volts/milli-amps) dust proof, silent and in a compact size.

Challenges

  • Short timeline to samples
  • Unknown application requirements specifications (reverse engineering)

Services Performed

  • Mechanical Design
  • Reverse engineering
  • Rapid prototyping – samples in 3 weeks
  • Mechanical testing of terminal strain relief
  • Life cycle testing

Results

  • Lower cost, ‘silent’ switch
  • Improved terminals for added harness strength
  • Long life – 100K + actuation cycles
