The challenge was to design a mechanism to drive an internal adjustment (regulation) using an external electric motor, while also providing feedback from the adjustment mechanism, or by using a hand tool.
The solution was a unique combination of drive components which is proprietary to our customer.
In addition to the mechanical design, we also conducted Finite Element Analysis of various components.
