Start ups and prototypes

With a prototype it is easy to test a pruduct idea and get feedback from customers. We excel in rapid and cost effective prototyping, including electronics, software and mechnics. Where applicable we use the "Minimum Viable Product" concept, to shorten lead times and secure fast feedback from customers.

    Inductive coupling to a power cable

    Feasibility study where the ability to drive electronics via the inductive coupling to a power cable were examined. The difficulty lay in that the power cable would run through the electronic unit, and therefore the “transformer” winding consisted of only one lap. NOW concluded that the project was feasible, and a prototype was displayed for the customer.
