Tough plastic enclosures for test and measurement electronics added to range

17-10-2023 | OKW Enclosures | Industrial

OKW's SOLID-BOX (IP 66, IP 67) has IK 08 impact protection, making it excellent for devices in challenging industrial and outdoor environments. The enclosures are also ideal for plant/machine construction, HVAC, IoT/IIoT, Industry 4.0, gateways, data loggers, ICT, electrical installations, agriculture, and safety engineering.

These smart, highly polished enclosures can be installed 'lid closed' – ensuring any finely calibrated electronics inside remain accurate. The lid is recessed for a membrane keypad, while the bottom has deep recesses to shield connectors.

The enclosure is available in three sizes: 115 (135mm x 115mm x 50mm), 145 (180mm x 145mm x 60mm) and 175 (225mm x 175mm x 70mm). Mounting points on the rear of sizes 145 and 175 match the hole patterns of VESA MIS-D 75/100. All the enclosures are moulded from tough PC+ABS (UL 94 V-0) in anthracite grey (RAL 7016) or light grey (RAL 7035) as standard.

Accessories include lid retainers, internal hinges, non-slip feet, Torx screwdrivers and self-tapping screws (for PCBs or DIN rails). Cable glands (M12 to M20) and bushings are also offered.

Other enclosures in the company's test and measurement range include handheld DATEC-COMPACT for multimeter-type devices, PROTEC for table-top calibration units, and MINI-DATA-BOX sensor housings that can be cable-tied or screwed in place quickly and easily.

All the company's enclosures for test and measurement are created to safeguard sensitive electronics – enhancing accuracy and extending device longevity. They also provide attractive, modern aesthetics to reflect the high value of the technology they house.

The company can supply its enclosures fully customised. Services include CNC machining, lacquering, printing, laser marking, decor foils, special materials, EMC shielding and installation/assembly of accessories.
