The Challenge

One of MIB Electronics’ recent projects involved building Ruggedized Power Supply units for outdoor surveillance applications. The brief was very specific: the units needed to be weatherproof, hard-wearing, suitable for outdoor power supplies and able to withstand harsh environments.

The need for a display was also important, a display that provided valuable visual feedback by showing the voltage and status of the battery was essential.

The Solution

After several attempts at finding a product that suited both the application and their client’s needs, MIB Electronic discovered the SGD 21-B from Lascar Electronics. A low-cost, ultra-low-power, sunlight-readable, single-channel voltmeter with a sleek, monochrome 2.1″ e-paper dot matrix display.

The SGD 21-B has an ultra-low power consumption along with a sun-readable display, both very important points for this application.

The SGD 21-B also provides a quick and easy visual feedback, informing the user about the status of the battery pack.

With the use of Lascar’s SGD 21-B, MIB Electronics successfully created the battery pack with the capacity to manage multiple output options to power surveillance equipment in a range of demanding situations including bad weather conditions.
