OKW’s smart and ergonomic BODY-CASE is now available in three sizes – M, L and new XL. The company now offers a new size XL to its range of fully wearable plastic electronic enclosures.

Smart and comfortable the enclosure is ideal for a broad range of applications including data recording and transmission; healthcare/wellness; leisure and sports; digital communications; IoT/IIoT; tracking/monitoring; emergency call/notification; stock/sales logging; safety engineering; measurement/control; automation, and any roles concerning localisation of personnel.

The new enclosure, like the existing M and L sizes, can be worn like a watch on a standard 18mm strap. Each enclosure is provided with two spring bars. The enclosure can also be hung around the neck on a lanyard, clipped to a belt or pocket, fitted to a key ring or carried loose. Power can be provided by round or button cells on the PCB or by a rechargeable battery with a copper loop for inductive charging.

The new enclosure (62mm x 56mm x 18mm) is longer, wider and deeper than sizes M (50mm x 41mm x 16mm) and L (55mm x 46mm x 17mm). All three sizes can be selected either with or without a recessed top for a membrane keypad or product label.

The case is rated IP 65 for ingress protection. The top and bottom are moulded from Traffic White (RAL 9016) UV-stable ASA that is burnished to a high gloss finish for easy cleaning and enhanced aesthetics. The matt sealing ring is Lava grey or Vermilion (RAL 2002) TPE.

Accessories for the new size include the pocket clip, eyelet, covers kit, a watch-style 18mm wrist strap, a key ring, woven wrist strap and lanyard, a spring bar tool and a T6 screwdriver.
