Concealed suspension element facilitates wall mounting

It is now possible for OKW’s SYNERGY enclosures to be wall mounted using a new concealed suspension element. This new suspension element is compatible with the circular R120 (ø120mm) and 140 (ø140mm) variants of SYNERGY. Its hidden fixings are even more discrete than SYNERGY’s existing wall suspension element (which can be installed with only one screw). The new wall suspension element’s adapter (45x58mm) is attached to the housing using customised double-sided foil on a foam rubber carrier. 

This adapter fits into a housing which is either screwed to the wall or attached using adhesive foils (available as an accessory). A clever locking pin system provides removal protection.

Each kit is supplied with an adapter, two adhesive foils, one holder and two locking pins. All the plastic components are moulded from ASA+PC-FR for added strength and UV stability. The standard colour is black (RAL 9005).

These anodised aluminium enclosures are available in four shapes (square, rectangular, circular and oval) and 36 plan sizes ranging from ø100mm and 100x100mm to 200x100mm. Enclosures can be specified with or without battery compartments for 1.5V AA cells.

All the fixings are concealed thanks to SYNERGY’s smart fast-connect construction system. Four internal assembly pillars hold each enclosure together. They snap into the recessed top panel, locate the assembly extrusion and are fixed to the bottom part with four stainless steel Torx T10 anti-tamper screws.

Accessories include the wall suspension elements plus polarity reversal protection devices, battery clips, button cell holders, battery compartments, an extender kit for the PCB pillars, self-tapping screws (PZ1 2.5x6mm) and a Torx T10 screwdriver.

OKW can supply SYNERGY fully customised ready for the installation of PCBs. Services include CNC machining, lacquering, printing of legends and logos, EMC shielding, plastic and aluminium panels, membrane keypads, display windows and assembly.
