Project Cubert

    The Challenge

    Our client, Colebrook Bosson Saunders (CBS), approached us to take the original concept from inception into high volume production for the commercial consumer market.

    Cubert uniquely combines the ability to power and charge portable devices with a touch dimmable LED desk light.

    The shared goal was to blend CBS’s ergonomic design philosophy with Plextek’s electronics design and manufacturing capability to create a unique product, while satisfying the quality, cost and robustness demands of high volume production and the competitive commercial market.

    The Approach

    Plextek liaised directly with test houses on the client’s behalf to define and obtain necessary approvals.

    With an understanding of commercial market requirements, Plextek designed the electrical solution to worldwide safety and EMC regulatory standards from the outset, without impacting the product capability or cost.

    Cubert includes a number of circuit boards, bespoke embedded software and custom components – all designed, created, tested and managed by Plextek.
