OKW releases round and oval extruded enclosures

18 January 2015

OKW has added new round and oval models to its range of Synergy electronic enclosures – its first to be manufactured from both plastic and aluminium.

The new models mean the Synergy range now offers 36 enclosures in four types – round, oval, square and edge (rectangular) – all with a superb quality surface finish for high value handheld, desktop and wall mounted electronics equipment.

Synergy enclosures are the first to feature OKW’s new fast-connect system which comprises four internal assembly pillars that hold each enclosure together.

Glass reinforced polyamide pillars 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. Several pillars can be snapped together to create custom heights in 5mm increments (on request).

The main body section of each case is extruded from AlMgSi 0.5 aluminium. It is blasted with glass beads and anodised in silver (or black on request) to create an extremely high quality finish.

Synergy’s top and base sections are manufactured from UV-resistant ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0). They are black (RAL 9005) as standard but custom colours can be specified on demand.

PCBs can be mounted in the top and bottom. Cables of up to 3mm diameter can be routed out of the bottom section. There is also plenty of space for interfaces on the other surfaces.
Round and Square models are offered in three plan sizes: 100mm x 100mm; 120mm x 120mm; 140mm x 140mm, all in heights of 40, 70 or 100mm.

Oval and edge (rectangular) models are also available in three plan sizes: 160mm x 80mm; 180mm x 90mm; 200mm x 100mm, all in 40, 70 or 100mm heights.

Options and accessories include battery compartments for three or four 1.5V AA cells, an extender kit for the PCB pillars, plus a suspension kit that enables Synergy to be wall mounted with only one screw.

Prices for the new Synergy models start at £28. Customisation services include CNC milling and drilling, printing or engraving of legends and logos, special finishes, keypads and assembly.
