Aqua Logic Floating Spa Remote
Goldline asked Bleck Design Group to design a new remote control for built-in pools and spas. It had to be attractive, easy to use and durable. Bleck Design Group developed this design to look like aquatic fun and be intuitive for users. The round soft-edge design floats face up and it is waterproof to five meters. The round shape is tough and will not get stuck in pool scuppers. The plastic material was chosen to withstand extreme chlorine and UV light.
The housing design creates a two chamber enclosure with the electronics and radio in the front half and the batteries in the back. The once per year battery change does not disturb the seal on the electronics. A built in pressure membrane responds to large temperature changes and maintains optimum atmospheric pressure.
This water proof and compact wired remote control is designed to easily install in wide range of outdoor locations. The plastic case uses over-molded elastomeric plastic on a clear shell to create a durable housing. Bleck Design Group provided concept development and initial engineering development.
