Compact plastic enclosures now in customised versions

15-06-2023 | OKW Enclosures | Industrial

OKW Enclosures' new MINI-DATA-BOX plastic enclosures for 'go-anywhere' miniaturised electronics are now offered in customised versions.

The enclosures are ideal for applications, including IoT/IIoT, automation, security/surveillance, environmental monitoring, measurement and control, smart logistics, peripherals, interfaces, and ICT.

The company can now supply the products fully customised. Enclosures are supplied to the customer ready for the installation of electronic components straight away – streamlining the supply chain. The company's customisation services include machining, lacquering, printing, laser marking, EMC shielding and assembly of accessories.

Digital printing allows it to add legends, logos and photo-quality graphics to enclosures. Laser marking is excellent for consecutive numbering and very small, machine-readable QR codes, barcodes and DataMatrix codes.

These square and rectangular enclosures are offered either with/without flanges for screws and cable ties. This allows the housings to be mounted to walls, ceilings, and rails quickly and easily. Bevelled lid corners lower weight and give the enclosures a smart 'diamond cut' appearance.

The lid and base feature a tongue-and-groove joint that adds strength. They are assembled with tamperproof stainless steel Torx screws. Inside are fixing supports for PCBs and components at the top and bottom.

The enclosures are available in four plan sizes (40mm x 40mm, 50mm x 50mm, 60mm x 40mm, 70mm x 50mm) and two heights (15mm and 20mm). IP 65 sealing is optional. The enclosures are moulded from UV-stable, flame-resistant ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0). There are two standard colours, traffic white (RAL 9016) and anthracite grey (RAL 7016), with custom colours obtainable on request. Accessories include IP 65 seals.
