OKW Enclosures' range of robust shell-type plastic enclosures has been designed to house small electronic devices including test and measurement, medical, peripherals and interfaces.

The shell-type enclosures are moulded in off-white, RAL 9002 ABS (UL94 HB).

The company offers three different types: Type V with a single front-panel aperture; Type O with two front-panel apertures; and Type G, which is closed with no front-panel apertures.

With four standard plan sizes and six standard heights, a large range of models is offered with external dimensions ranging from 85 x 45 x 22mm to 190 x 38 x 91mm.

In addition, the enclosures are offered with three different battery compartments, which will accept four battery cell combinations: two 1.5V AA, four 1.5V AA, one 9V and two 9V cells.

The battery compartments have a clip-on external access lid.

The shell-type cases can be fitted with nickel-plated steel spring battery contacts, which conform to DIN EN 60601 and are designed to avoid short circuit if the batteries are inserted incorrectly.

All models are provided with internal screw bosses and guide grooves for fitting the PCBs and electronic components.

Accessory anodised aluminium or red PVC front panels are offered for the models with front-panel apertures.

The closed Type G models feature a recessed top moulding for fitting a membrane keypad or product label, and will also accept a gasket for sealing up to IP65.

Other accessories include tilt feet, wall brackets and holders, pocket/belt clips, rubber non-slip feet and EMC contact strips.

OKW can supply the shell-type cases with additional holes for the pushbuttons, connectors and displays, plus silk-screen printed legends and logos, and EMC shielding.
