Resene Paints Ltd, NZ’s largest paint company, approached Beta Solutions with a view to help transform their idea into a commercial reality. Resene had a vision for a product which would enable users to control electrical devices simply by touching specially painted surfaces. These surfaces would be coated in their newly developed touch sensitive conductive paint and connected to some intelligent electronics - responsible for monitoring the user’s touches and controlling the devices (e.g.: house lights).
Flight Sounds Ltd looked to Beta Solutions to provide them with expert electronic design skills to help transform their product concept ideas into a commercial reality. The products are specifically developed to enable pilots to interface their real-world aviation headsets to computers, and are intended to closely match the audio intercom and radio features found in actual aircraft cockpits. Flight Sounds have gone on to sell thousands of products to users all around the world.
BioLumic Ltd are pioneers in developing world leading UV light solutions for the purposes of improving the yield, quality and disease resistance of crops. Their products are a result of over 10 years of pioneering science and research in Ultra Violet (UV) Light and plant interactions.
Biolumic turned to Beta Solutions to help turn their scientific research into tangible products.
Beta Solutions partnered with Atkinson & Rapley Consulting Ltd, designing a dual-channel, broad-spectrum, USB sound recording device for recording environmental sound, specifically for investigating industrial noise pollution. The low noise specifications were very strict, but the end result surpassed their expectations.
Beta Solutions were engaged by a leading manufacturer of industrial fume cupboards to overhaul the design of their existing controllers. Custom electronic PCBs and dedicated embedded firmware were developed to control their safety critical products. Despite the tight specifications and timeframes, the project was completed on time and on budget.
Anyone who has experienced being shocked by a several thousand volt Electric Fence knows it hurts - really hurts! Daniel Hall envisaged it should be possible to implement some "smart technology" - harnessing the power of a modern smart phone - to detect whether the fence was on or off. With that in mind, Dan engaged Beta Solutions to assist with the development. What resulted was a product which won the Vodafone Innovation in Technology Award at the National Fieldays at Mystery Creek in 2015.
