Power Switch Reliability Tester

Institution

Western Kentucky University

Abstract

This project was to design a power switch test apparatus for the Lexington-based printer company Lexmark. This tester enabled the company to assess the resilience of the electrical system of a printer when subjected to the everyday occurrence of switching the power on. The transitional period immediately after the power switch is activated is significant to the reliability of a printer's electronic systems. The reaction of the printer's electrical system during this transitional period can be significantly altered by changes to the switch. This project offered a solution that enables Lexmark to test a printer's electrical system without modifying the switch or any other component of the electrical system.
