New canting kit for extruded aluminium enclosures

OKW Enclosures has updated the canting kit for its elegant SMART-TERMINAL extruded aluminium enclosures, enhancing their stability even further when used as a desktop housing.

This product is a stylish and sophisticated handheld, desktop and wall-mount enclosure for peripheral and interface equipment; biometrics; medical and laboratory technology; office and communications technology; safety engineering; automation, Smart Factory and Industry 4.0; gateways; measurement and control engineering.

It has subtly redesigned the canting kit utilised to incline it at a 12-degree angle for more ergonomic viewing and operation. Each of the two triangular canting stands offers additional location elements – providing even greater stability during use.

The new canting kit comprises two stands and four anti-slip rubber feet. The stands are moulded from ASA+PC-FR in lava to match the enclosure end covers. No screws are required, the stands slide into the base and are kept in place by the end covers and soft-touch TPV seals.

The matt anodised aluminium case body provides a large, recessed area on top for displays, membrane keypads and operating elements. Horizontal guide rails and T-groove screw channels are offered inside for fitting PCBs.

The enclosure is provided in one width (170mm) and height (50mm) and three standard profile lengths: 160, 200 and 240mm. The end covers are moulded in UV-stable ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0) and – together with the TPV seals – add a further 42mm, bringing the enclosures’ total lengths to 202, 242 and 282mm.

Other accessories for enclosure include a wall suspension element, VESA mounting plate (on request), rubber feet and mounting hardware.

Customising options incorporate CNC machining, lacquering, printing or laser marking of legends and logos, decor foils, EMC shielding, special materials, installation and assembly.
