The Virtual Terminal is used to control the equipment of harvesters. Extremely high strength, airtightness, and temperature tolerance requirements were set for the product. Sealing connections and designing the usability of switches were particularly challenging. One must be able to use the product wearing gloves in varying conditions.
Elmo Design Oy designed the mechanics of the entire device, which consists of both plastic and sheet metal components. The challenges caused by heat transfer were also successfully addressed in the design work.
