New XL size BODY-CASE wearable enclosures
OKW has added a new size XL to its BODY-CASE range of fully wearable plastic electronic enclosures. Smart and comfortable BODY-CASE suits a wide range of applications including data recording and transmission, IoT/IIoT, tracking and monitoring and emergency calls among others and any roles involving localisation of personnel.
Like the existing M and L sizes, the new BODY-CASE XL can be worn like a watch on a standard 18mm strap; each enclosure is supplied with two spring bars. BODY-CASE can also be hung around the neck on a lanyard, clipped to a belt/pocket, fitted to a key ring or carried loose.
Power can be supplied by round or button cells on the PCB or by a rechargeable battery with a copper loop for inductive charging.
New BODY-CASE XL (62x56x18mm) is longer, wider and deeper than sizes M (50x41x16mm) and L (55x46x17mm). All three sizes can be specified either with or without a recessed top for a membrane keypad or product label.
Each case comprises three parts: a top section with PCB location bars; a bottom section with four pre-moulded drilling centres for use when fitting contact pins (drilling required); a soft-touch sealing ring. The PCB is held securely between the top and bottom sections after assembly with four tamperproof Torx (T6) M2x6mm screws.
BODY-CASE is rated IP 65 for ingress protection. The top and bottom are moulded from Traffic White (RAL 9016) UV-stable ASA that is polished to a high gloss finish for easy cleaning and enhanced aesthetics. The matt sealing ring is Lava grey or Vermilion (RAL 2002) TPE. Prices for BODY-CASE start at £8.
Accessories for the new size include the pocket clip/eyelet/covers kit, a watch-style 18mm wrist strap, a key ring, woven wrist strap and lanyard, a spring bar tool and a T6 screwdriver.
Customising options for BODY-CASE include: CNC machining, custom colours, decor foils, printing, laser marking and installation/assembly of accessories.
