18-12-2023 | OKW Enclosures | Industrial

OKW has expanded its SMART-PANEL series, introducing state-of-the-art wall-mount and desktop enclosures tailored for advanced building monitoring and control systems. The latest addition, the S114 model, is designed to integrate seamlessly with flush-mount cavity wall boxes up to 100mm x 100mm, offering a versatile solution for various installation requirements.

Designed for Versatility and Elegance

These enclosures are perfectly suited for a wide array of applications, from building services and electrical installations to IoT/IIoT technologies, laboratories, medical environments, office settings, security systems, smart homes, and wireless communications. The SMART-PANEL series combines functionality with aesthetic appeal, making it an ideal choice for modern control units.

Innovative Features for Enhanced Usability

The SMART-PANEL enclosures boast a highly polished bottom section with a flat, recessed area for interfaces such as USB or mini-USB, alongside a top section with a fine surface texture designed to house touch screens or membrane keypads. This design not only enhances the product's appearance but also its functionality, accommodating various user interfaces with ease.

Efficient Assembly and Maintenance

OKW's focus on convenience is evident in the enclosures' design, featuring a screwless snap-together assembly that significantly speeds up the installation process. For maintenance and inspection, the enclosures can be easily reopened using dedicated tools, available as an accessory, ensuring that updates and repairs are hassle-free.

Tailored for Modern Requirements

Initially designed to fit standard flush-mount cavity wall boxes with a 61mm opening, the new S114 size (114mm x 114mm x 21.3mm) accommodates larger international boxes up to 100mm x 100mm. This addition complements the existing S84 and E155 sizes, ensuring that the SMART-PANEL range can meet diverse installation needs with UV-stable ASA+PC materials in traffic white (RAL 9016) as standard.

Customisation and Service Excellence 

OKW offers full customisation for the SMART-PANEL enclosures, including CNC machining, printing of legends, logos, and photo-quality graphics, laser marking, decor foils, EMC shielding, and assembly of accessories. This comprehensive service ensures that each enclosure can be tailored to meet specific project requirements, enhancing the overall design and functionality of the control units.

With the expanded SMART-PANEL range, OKW continues to set the standard for high-quality, versatile enclosure solutions that meet the sophisticated demands of modern building control systems.
