Electrical Accessory

This is a range of electrical accessories that was developed by SCAD Design for use in Australian manufactured caravans and recreational vehicles.

This project included new styling of double and single GPOs (general purpose outlets) and switch plates, internal design of the GPO double pole switch and socket mechanisms and development of a 20 amp 3 pole connector system.

The range of products are all connected by a “soft wiring system” which enables connection of the various electrical accessories by simple “snap-together” connections.

A number of existing products were redesigned and/or adapted to use with the new soft wiring system.

Not only does this type of project involve the design of many plastic moulded components, but also a large number of press conductor parts, which includes, consideration of ease of tooling, minimizing material useage, current carrying capacity and mechanics of the switch mechanisms and sockets conductors.
