New enclosures for wired electronics
08 November 2015
OKW's new Connect enclosures are suitable for applications where the unit is connected to a cable, sits between cables or where the units are joined with USB connectors.
Connect is a two-piece enclosure with convex and flattened case shell sections. The flattened section is designed for fitting a membrane keypad or product label. Ergonomic rounded corners make it comfortable to hold.
The enclosures’ smart snap-together construction means no screws are required – giving a choice of which side to make the top. Benefits also include faster installation times and enhanced aesthetics.
Three sizes are available from launch: 54mm x 22mm in lengths of either 76, 116 or 156mm.
The enclosures have open apertures at each end. They can be fitted with accessory end panels (which can be machined for USB Connectors, LEDs) or integrated cable glands (3.4 - 4.2mm; 4.2 - 5.0mm; 5.0 - 5.9mm diameters). The cable gland kits include a strain relief feature. Four fixing pillars inside the flattened case shell accommodate 2.2 x 5 mm PCB screws.
Although Connect is designed for indoor use (IP 40), it is moulded from ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0) for superior UV resistance. The standard colour is off-white (RAL 9002) but custom colours are available on request.
Other accessories include a holding clamp for round tubes up to 32mm diameter.
Prices for Connect start at under £5. Customisation services include CNC milling and drilling, printing or engraving of legends and logos, special finishes and materials (including bioplastic), EMC shielding and assembly.
