Director Of Engineering
Taylor studied Applied Mathematics at Hawaii Pacific University and Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington, and in 2011 he received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Washington State University.
He then began his engineering career in R&D Hardware Engineering at Schweitzer Engineering Labs in Pullman, Washington. He worked designing digital products and systems that protect, control, and automate power systems and critical infrastructure around the world.
He refined a patented method to utilize Rogowski coil current transformers which could be easily manufactured and miniaturized to fit into a low-voltage (less than 1kV) motor relay optimized to protect large electric motors typically found in industrial plants. This protection and monitoring device could directly meter three-phase currents ranging 0.5-4000A and was robust against arc flash and bolted arc-faults exceeding 150,000A continuous.
Taylor’s product development experience continued with the development of off-line mains power supplies including specification of custom transformer magnetics.
Most recently his materials research resulted in improve optical construction of TFT LCDs and Projected Capacitive touch sensors to create Touchscreen Displays for rugged environments. He pioneered test methods to evaluate new material stack-ups and achieved display designs with a projected useable lifetime exceeding 25 years.
