EMF Measure Vehicles Project - 2015
Diakar Techniki Ltd / Space Hellas Sa
Contracted in the Project of the Greek National Observatory of Electromagnetic Fields in order to redesign and restructure a common pick-up vehicle for the needs of real-time EMF measurements. Our team retrofitted the vehicle to host a Portable Station for Measuring Electromagnetic Fields and reconfigured the available space in order to accommodate measurement process and provide sufficient space for secure storing of the valuable electronic equipment. Our holistic redesign of the interior of the vehicle, using high strength coated wood with adequate supporting modules, led to the creation of sufficient workspace for 2 scientists. Additionally, we introduced two auxiliary cabinets, a metal one to be used as a safe storage for measurement equipment and related toolkits and a wooden one mounted in the vehicle interior, both equipped with safety locks to provide a safe working environment while the vehicle is in operation. The interior vehicle walls have been covered with insulating material and textile lining. Lastly, we equipped the rear end of the vehicle with an auxiliary 220V-1,5 KVA electric generator in addition to the vehicle’s 12V battery supply. For uninterrupted operation of the electrical set-up our engineering team has also installed a UPS system next to the generator.
