It has been announced that OKW’s CONNECT wired enclosures for medical electronics are now available in three sizes. CONNECT is suitable for a range of hospital applications including remote control for beds and other equipment, patient monitoring and emergency call buttons.
Each ergonomic case comprises two shells, offering a choice of which side to make the top. One shell is convex for comfortable handheld use, the other is flattened with a recessed panel to accommodate a membrane keypad. They snap together so no screws are needed.
Open apertures at either end enable the installation of cable glands for cable 3.4 to 5.9mm. The cable gland kits include a strain relief feature.
End panels are available to blank off any unused cutouts. These panels (and the flat sides) can be machined to accept USB connectors or LEDs. Four attachment pillars in the flat enclosure shell enable the easy mounting of a PCB.
CONNECT can be specified in three lengths: 76/116/156x54x22mm. The enclosures are moulded from UV-stable ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0). The standard colour is off-white (RAL 9002). Black (RAL 9005) versions will also be available from July 2019. Prices start at £5.70.
Accessories include: a bedrail holding clamp, soft-touch cable gland kits (in volcano grey or black) with integrated strain relief and kink protection; end panels (off-white or black); self-tapping screws.
OKW also offers a range of customisation services including CNC machining; custom colours and finishes (lacquering); digital, screen or tampo printing of legends and logos; photo quality decor foils; EMC shielding; installation and assembly.
