OKW's latest hand-held enclosures have been designed to house the latest pocket-sized electronics. Typical applications will include measurement and digital control devices – wireless or with cable connections, medical and laboratory equipment and peripherals and interfaces.
The ‘SOFT-CASES’ can easily accommodate electronic devices with wide format LCDs or keypads. The top part has a wide recessed area for locating the display or membrane keypad, and a raised panel on the long edge of the base part is designed for fitting a series of connectors i.e. USB, power, serial etc.
These cases are moulded ABS (UL 94 HB) in off-white, RAL 9002, and have external dimensions of 105 mm x 65 mm x 19 mm. Two models are offered, with or without a battery compartment for two 1.5V AAA cells. Screw pillars are provided in the top and base parts for fitting the PCBs, and the cases are assembled by four self-tapping screws.
Accessories include an off-white ABS intermediate ring which increases the internal height by 3 mm, and an IP 54 protection ring which is moulded in soft TPE material, and acts as a grip and bump protector for the unit, as well as increasing the height by 3 mm.
OKW can supply the ‘SOFT-CASES’ with additional holes for push-buttons, connectors and displays etc., plus silk-screen printed legends and logos, and EMC shielding. Standard prices start at £6.
