Enclosure Design – PDS


The Background

When HVPD decided it was time to update their existing PD Surveyor product, 4D Products were appointed as Product Design Consultants to the project. We worked closely with the in house engineering team to realise their vision for a class leading, ergonomic, rugged device.

Concept Design

This project wasn’t just a refresh, the product was re imagined from the ground up to include new functionality, features, and custom built fault monitoring and data logging software.


3D CAD Design

Our design team created fully detailed 3D CAD models. The hand held enclosure and charging dock were designed for injection moulding, with a protective overmould of TPE for shock absorption.


“The PDS Insight™ represents a large leap forward in terms of handheld partial discharge test technology available in the market”

Dr Lee Renforth, Managing Director

The Result

The PDS Insight™ is the world’s first handheld On-line Partial Discharge (OLPD) test unit supplied with a dedicated asset management tablet application – the OLPD Manager™ app.
