Methode was approached to find a replacement for a bonded-fin heat sink prototype that was too large, too heavy and too expensive.
A welding-equipment manufacturer wanted their next-generation product contained within the existing legacy enclosure, while maintaining sufficient air flow.
Methode was approached to fabricate a customer-designed, liquid-cooled brazed heat sink.
Methode was asked to design a fuse panel that would increase current capacity, as well as reduce internal system temperature rise.
Methode was approached to assist on the design of a new router and power distribution systems housed in a 43U server rack cabinet.
To create a small, yet efficient, power distribution system located in a military helicopter blade hub.
Methode worked with the customer’s engineers to optimize a scalable design for increasing the capacity of a high-end server where the system operates at a very low DC voltage.
Methode was asked to design a power distribution unit that replaced an in-house design and met a customer’s impending release date.
Methode was approached to connect a 50A source to a backplane situated around a very sharp corner, and make the backplane connection both secure and robust.
Methode was approached to improve the reliability of an existing power-cable system used to distribute 48 VDC to three separate loads.
Methode was asked to design a power cable to connect two 48 VDC paralleled (n+1), redundant power supplies to a laminated bus bar situated around a sharp bend.
Methode was approached to design a 25-foot-long electrical cable that is easily shipped and quickly installed to connect hydrogen fuel cells to a power-distribution bus.
Methode was asked to design a connector for charging a robot battery that integrates power and signal contacts, with low mating force that can be blind-mated without human intervention. The connector is also designed to survive over 3,000 charge cycles and still maintain connection integrity.
Methode was tasked with designing an 800VAC, blind-mate panel-mount connector that included thirteen contacts, each rated for 150A.
Methode was approached to create a solution that would replace a customer’s existing expensive power connector that was overheating.
Replacement of a customer’s existing bus bar and wired connections with a more reliable, quick-connect power-distribution system.
