Here’s a sample of a high volume cost-driven product for an automatic application.
We developed a Battery Charger for a Motorola Hand Held Radio.Unit is installed in police cars and fleet automobiles, mounted under the dashboard or on the transmission hump. The radio is stored in the charger for charging during periods of non-use.
The charger is cost driven, very high volume. We designed the unit with a minimalist approach to satisfy a high reliability requirement. The robust unit consists of a steel outer housing, front panel and inner radio support frame, charging electronics and mounting bracket. Chassis cost goal of $25 per unit is achieved and the product is currently being manufactured in lots of 1000.
