Many different electronic circuits and systems have been designed and developed at MARLEX Engineering. We provide a full range of electronic circuit design services to our clients to assist in developing an idea into a prototype and eventually into a product. A few examples of our own in-house electronic designs are shown below.

ELECTRONIC CIRCUIT DESIGN
For customers with an idea for an electronic product or device, MARLEX Engineering provides services to design, build and test custom electronic circuits. Our skilled circuit designers can develop analog, digital and mixed signal electronic circuits. Our circuit designs take advantage of the latest technologies and components currently on the market including specialized ICs and off-the-shelf modules. For circuits that require microcontrollers and Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) our experienced programmers will develop the software and firmware that is required to operate the device. For all our designs we supply detailed schematic diagrams and a complete Bill of Materials (BOM).
We also design and layout the Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) for the circuit and supply all the files and documentation that are necessary for manufacturing the boards. We can arrange to have the boards manufactured and populated with components and once prototype circuits have been made we will thoroughly test them.
Throughout the process we work with our customers to make improvements and adjustments to the design if required.
For customers who already have an existing circuit or product we can assist with:
LED REPLACEMENT FOR FLUORESCENT TUBE
MARLEX has developed a drop-in LED lamp module to replace fluorescent tubes. This breakthrough patented technology can be used in both specialty and general lighting applications. The F32T8 Tube LED Replacement Module utilizes the existing size, shape and connections of a standard four foot F32T8 fluorescent tube and can be operated either directly from the mains supply or by the ballast that is currently in the fixture. This allows for a simple retrofit of existing F32T8 lighting installations without the need to rewire the fixture.
Our LED tube-replacement technology provides the advantages of:
The MARLEX design team is currently adapting our LED lamp drive technology to other applications, including HID Lamp replacement.
C-Back™ is an intelligent back-up system for the Light Duty and Passenger Vehicle market. This patented, ultrasonic-based technology alerts the driver to objects in the path of the vehicle both before and during reversing.
In an independent evaluation the Grote Obstacle Detection System was rated “Best Buy” by Consumer Reports magazine, and was also named as one of the best 50 products of 2003 by Heavy Duty Trucking Magazine.
TRACTOR TRAILER LIGHTING & SIGNAL TESTER
The Trailer Tester is an extremely rugged, durable and valuable tool for testing the wiring and lighting systems on commercial truck trailers to help find and eliminate any electrical circuit problems. It is designed for use in facilities that manufacture, refurbish or test trailers. The trailer is simply plugged into the tester and then using either a convenient wireless remote or the front panel buttons the operator can switch power to any combination of the six individual circuits in the trailer:
Easy to read LED displays aid with testing/troubleshooting by showing the current drawn by the circuit as well as open and short-circuit faults.
Trailer Tester Features
The Trailer Tester is available for purchase through ProQuip International under the name RT300 Remote Tester.
Our in-house R&D efforts have led to the successful development of a patented low-power piezo-electronic controller. Our technology is ideal for use in power critical applications where low cost and high reliability are of primary concern.
Together with the mechanical design team from Veltri Technologies we have integrated our controller into an innovative Electronic Valve Positioner. Targeted for use in the chemical processing industry, our initial product offering is a self-powered 4-20mA current loop controlled version of this positioner. HART programmable derivatives of this technology are currently being developed.
