LifeWhere’s Data Engineer Brenden Knecht giving you the inside scoop on how the LifePulse device works.
In-house 3D Printing
The LifePulse is designed to be installed in a junction box next to the shut-off switch of your home utility and it connects to the internet through your home Wifi network in order to send data to the cloud for processing.
The technology is encased in a thick, hard plastic case to protect the communications board from damage. The covers, as well as the illumination rings, are 3D printed in-house by our engineers.
What’s In a LifePulse?
How the Power Boards are Made
The LifePulse power boards are made by contract manufacturers that assemble electronic circuit boards, cables and mechanical devices. Our team took a trip to one of the assembly facilities to see first hand how the boards are made.
After assembly, the boards are soldered. Soldering is the use of a conductive substance with a low melting point (solder) to electrically connect components together.
LifeWhere takes safety very seriously. Therefore, the LifePulse is RoHS compliant, which means that it has restrictions on specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products, and uses lead-free solder.
LifeWhere’s VP of IoT Bob Boehmer took one of the boards under a microscope, examining it for any anomalies.
To make sure everything is 100% functional and correct, multiple infrared and x-ray images are taken of the boards.
