Case Study: Backup Alarm with Custom Pigtail

At Chief we hear our customer’s challenges and present the best possible solution. 

Customer Challenge:

In this case study, our customer designed-in a backup alarm, but needed a custom connection.

Chief Solution:

After meeting with the customer, Chief’s solution was to source a high quality back-up alarm from Seger A.S and design and assemble a custom pigtail with an Amphenol Sine connector

Chief has long standing relationships with these two vendors, allowing us to obtain the best pricing on subcomponents and reduce lead time by warehousing the product. Furthermore, our engineering team leverages cloud based CAD software for ease of collaboration on design projects just like this one. And finally, our assembly activities take place right outside of Chicago in Elmhurst, IL allowing for a quick turnaround. That’s the Chief advantage!

The Chief Advantage:

  1. Relationships with component manufacturers reduce lead time and allow for best pricing
  2. Engineering team uses cloud CAD software for ease of collaboration
  3. Assembly facility is located in Elmhurst, IL allowing for a quick turnaround
