OKW launches new CONNECT enclosures for wired electronics

20 November 2015

CONNECT is aimed at electronics applications where the unit is connected to a cable, sits between cables or where the units are joined with USB connectors.

Typical applications include medical, measurement and control devices. The cases can either be suspended on the cables or lay flat.

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 (outside diameters: 3.4 - 4.2mm; 4.2 - 5.0mm; 5.0 - 5.9mm). The cable gland kits include a strain relief feature. Four fixing pillars inside the flattened case shell accommodate 2.2mm diameter by 5mm 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.
