Pop-Up Plug Receptacle
Cooper Perkins worked to develop a mechanical concept for a pop-out plug receptacle for Legrand. The team conducted research into a number of relevant topics in order to reach some informative and constraining conclusions. These constraints included device width and depth, actuation force, flexible conductors, and electrical codes for internal buses. Taking all objectives and constraints into consideration, Cooper Perkins opted on a Rack and Pinion mechanism, which provided an extremely compact, highly robust solution to the large-travel telescoping format.
