The ‘SENSO-CASE’ enclosures have an ergonomic hand grip profile with a large head section, and are moulded in off-white or lava grey ABS (UL 94 HB). The external dimensions are 180 mm x 86 mm x 45 mm. The design consists of four parts: top, base, battery compartment lid, and end panel. Screw pillars are provided inside for mounting PCBs, keypads, cable clamps etc. The new models are supplied with a single pole push-button switch (max. 28V/100mA), assembly elements for the switch, and an orange rubber button cover moulded in soft TPE.
‘SENSO-CASE’ enclosures permit both right and left-handed operation, and can be used as mobile units with battery power or connected via a cable. The battery compartment will accept two 1.5V AA or one 9V cell. Optional cable glands replace the standard end panel, and along with a cable clamp, can be used for fitting the control cable.
The head section has a recessed area in the top for fitting membrane keypads, LCD modules, rubber keypads or push-buttons. The large front face can be used for mounting sensors or scanners. Prices for the new models start at £16.
OKW can supply the ‘SENSO-CASES’ with additional holes for the push-buttons, connectors and displays, plus silk-screen printed legends and logos, and EMC shielding.
