OKW meets rising demand for touchscreen enclosures
OKW has reported increasing demand for its advanced touchscreen enclosures: wall-mounted SMART-PANEL, low-profile handheld SLIM-CASE, square-plan control centre PROTEC and multifunctional INTERFACE-TERMINAL.
Collectively, all four cover a wide range of applications including IIoT/IoT, Industry 4.0, smart factory, measuring and control, medical and laboratory technology, offices, gateways, automation, data systems engineering and wireless communications.
New SMART-PANEL houses edge-to-edge touchscreens for building services, electrical installations, smart home and security systems. These elegant and discreet enclosures can be fitted to standard flush-mount cavity wall boxes. With no visible fixing screws, they blend seamlessly into modern residential, commercial and industrial environments.
Ergonomic new SLIM-CASE (IP 54/65) accommodates touchscreens up to four inches for a wide range of high-mobility environmental technology and safety engineering applications. SLIM-CASE’s contoured sides, bevelled rear panel and optional soft-touch intermediate ring make it comfortable to hold and operate. The virtually frameless design houses low-profile components and assemblies in a compact space.
PROTEC (IP 65 optional) has an ergonomic sloping front panel and is available in three sizes – all of which can be customised to house a touchscreen. This modern housing can be used on a table-top or wall mounted to suit the specific application. Three versions are offered with recessed, closed or extended rear section for the connections and cables.
Modular INTERFACE-TERMINAL (IP 54 optional) can be ordered in a range of configurations: mobile handheld units; sloping front table-top or wall mounted units; flush-mount units for fitting in walls or front panels for harmonious integration in visually sensitive locations such as historic buildings. An accessory glass screen can be specified for touchscreens (6.4”, 8.4” or 10.4”).
The enclosures are moulded from UV-stable ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0) or ABS (UL 94 HB). They are all off-white (RAL 9002) as standard except SMART-PANEL which is traffic white (RAL 9016).
Accessories include glass panels for the touchscreens, IP seals, anti-slide rubber feet, and self-tapping screws for fitting PCBs and assemblies.
OKW can supply all the enclosures fully customised. Services include CNC machining, printing, laser marking, custom colours, decor foils, EMC shielding and installation/assembly.
