G6 Prepay Unit
Established in the 1980s, ENER-G Switch2 has grown to become a major Energy Services Company providing clean tech solutions to both public and private sectors in over 17 countries.
ENER-G Switch2 approached Blueprint to design and develop a new innovative enclosure for their G6 prepay unit. Not only did the client want a major aesthetic upgrade, but also as part of a huge cost saving strategy, wanted the enclosure to be as flexible as possible, allowing it to be installed as a two part optional upgrade. This posed many challenges for both ourselves and the electronic designers.
What we did
As a unique approach, Blueprint offered the solution of a three part enclosure consisting of a mains supply box, a smart reversible safety bezel, and the main interactive prepay ‘plug-in’ module. This unique design allows the main supply box to be connected and made safe without the prepay module installed. If the customer requires the prepay facility at a later date, the unit can be easily converted by rotating the reversible bezel and inserting the prepay module, something that can easily be done by a service engineer. As well as providing an innovative design solution, Blueprint also sourced manufacturing and provided the client with boxed product as part of a full turn key service.
