At EMP Designs, we have recently extended our team and our workshop  and are now seeking an Electronic Product Designer 

We are delighted to welcome Jackie Andrews as a new permanent member of the team, and our key assembler. In addition, we have recently expanded our office footprint, introducing a new anti-static workshop area, and some excellent new equipment including a state-of-the-art CNC machine. In addition, we are seeking a new Electronic Product Designer to be based in our Farnborough premises and would love to hear from you if you fit the description below.

Electronic Product Designer

EMP Designs is an electronic and industrial design company with an inventive edge. As our business grows, we are looking for an Electronic Product Designer to join our friendly, small and busy team.

Our projects are diverse and we offer a dynamic environment where no 2 days will be the same – from industrial mechanics, to retail projects, to working with leading film production companies on new concepts for special effects, props and set lighting control. Essentially, we are looking for the right fit – someone passionate about solving electronics problems and willing to embrace new challenges and be part of the team.  The extent of the role will depend on the person and their experience.

Skills:

  • Electronic product development
  • Analog and digital electronic design / engineering

  • Understanding of micro controller integration
  • 3D design and prototyping

Please send your CV and with brief covering letter detailing how your skills match those above, to Carol@empdesigns.co.uk

 

Radio dongle

All you need is Radio Dongle!

First developed a couple of years ago, our radio dongle remains popular. With LumenRadio technology inside, this small neat device can be plugged into any light to enable it to be remotely controlled by DMX radio.

The radio dongle works well with our other products and lighting systems.

TrueLED is our sister company, who offer a range of flexible, state-of-the-art lighting controllers for the film, TV, event and entertainment industries. All standard TrueLED products can be manipulated or developed to any requirement by EMP Designs.

EMP Designs work with Cinelex on their innovative universal wireless DMX controller

EMP Designs has been working with Cinelex, a broadcast, video and film lighting specialist supplier, on the launch of their Universal Wireless DMX controller. Launched as Project Spectre, the product was a response to the demand for a standard, portable, high functioning and sturdy wireless DMX system that can work with any DMX controllable light.

Cinelex took the concept to EMP Designs, who developed the embedded radio solution using technology from Lumen Radio. It fits neatly on the standard V-Mount between the light and the battery, which when stacked together give radio control to any light. EMP Designs provided Cinelex with a one-stop solution, turning their concept into a reality. Having developed the electronics system, EMP then designed and built a high quality product with custom extrusion, before fully testing the electronics ready for launch.

Definition Magazine recently ran an article on the product, noting “It could be the world’s first wireless DMX system to be powered via the same battery powering as the light, and “it’s already starting to set the standard in universal wireless DMX control”. Project Spectre is an innovation and a great addition to the professional broadcast and film lighting market allowing for existing lights to be upgraded to radio control in a clean and sleek format.

Radio Desk Transmitter

Portable Radio Desk Transmitter

Our standard radio desk transmitter provides easy and portable control of 8 channels, with a manual interface, Lumen Radio technology inside, and taking just 2 AA batteries to run for 10 hours.

Each slider provides a channel of easy access and real-time control – these have been used for lighting, motor control, movement and high level control for puppeteers and animatronics.

The radio desk works well with our LV4.
