OKW — New size and stations for fully wearable enclosures

08-01-2018 | OKW Enclosures | Subs & Systems

OKW has added a new size M and two stations to its BODY-CASE range of fully wearable enclosures. Smart and comfortable the series is designed for a wide range of wearable electronics applications including tracking and monitoring; emergency call and notification; bio-feedback sensors for healthcare, wellness and sports fitness. It can also be used for industrial electronics. It is the company's first enclosure that can be worn just like a watch. Each enclosure is supplied with two 18mm spring bars for a wrist strap. And with an optional fastening kit, it can also be worn 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 charging the device inductively. The enclosure is available in two sizes: new M (50mm x 41mm x 16mm) or the existing L (55mm x 46mm x 17mm). Both sizes can be specified either with or without a recessed top for a membrane keypad or product label.
