Modern and ergonomic enclosures for cable-connected electronics

OKW has enhanced its wired enclosures offer with the launch of new CONNECT cases. We designed CONNECT primarily for pendant applications. For this reason, it has two ‘fronts’ (thanks to its screwless snap together construction format).

One enclosure shell is convex, making it comfortable to hold. The other is flat and recessed to accommodate a membrane keypad. That flat surface also makes CONNECT perfect for desktop use too. Flat sides offer plenty of space for USB connections.

CONNECT is aimed at sectors including medical and wellness, data systems engineering, network technology, building services systems, measurement and control. There are cutouts at both ends for either end parts or soft touch TPE cable glands. They have integrated strain relief to prevent cables from kinking.

CONNECT is molded in UV stable ASA+PC-FR. Choose from three sizes: 2.13” x 0.87” in lengths of either 2.99”, 4.57” or 6.14”. The standard color is off white (RAL 9002). Custom colors are also available. Strong demand is expected from the medical sector – accessories include a dedicated bedrail clamp for round tubes up to ø 1.26”.

Other customizing options include RFI shielding; CNC machining; lacquering; digital, water transfer and tampo printing. Customizing services also include membrane keypads; display windows; adhesive foils; plastic and aluminum panels; installation and assembly. Prices for CONNECT start at $8.
