The basis of the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) and the IoT is to make things smarter by making them communicate with each other. The focus here is on sensors which are embedded in the devices and which constantly gather and centrally deliver data concerning machinery and special work scenarios or data about the entire value-added chain. The new EASYTEC wall-mounted enclosure series was developed specially for these modern sensor applications.

OKW's New Laser Marking Service

OKW now offers laser marking for numerous plastic enclosures and components from its standard range. The Laser process is ideal for individual labelling, identifying or marking.

In particular, very small machine-readable markings, e.g. QR codes, barcodes, consecutive numbering of individual parts and individual texts, can be carried out quickly and easily with laser marking.

Suitable materials are: ABS, ASA+PC, ASA+PC-FR, PC, PA, PA GF as well as aluminum. The colours off-white, pebble gray, light gray, lava and black are particularly suitable for high-contrast marking - depending on the material.

Laser marking involves a color change on the surface. Dark and light plastics turn gray at the points being marked. Simply ask our sales team for more information. We will be very pleased to advise you!

SMART-CONTROL - Enclosures For Room Corners

Our new SMART-CONTROL is the first enclosure for easy installation in any room corner. As a rule, this type of electronics is placed as high up in the corner (next to the ceiling) as possible; this position is ideal for wide-area room monitoring, saves space and protects the equipment from damage or tampering. In addition, these enclosures can also be mounted on a wall or table-top at an ergonomically inclined angle.

SMART-CONTROL is available in 2 sizes (H x W x D): 5.59" x 3.18" x 1.81" / 6.81" x 3.97" x 2.32", is molded in the flame-resistant material ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0) with high UV protection, and in the standard colour off-white (RAL 9002).

PROTEC Enclosures Now Sealed To IP 65

A recent protection class test in accordance with DIN EN 60529 confirms the high protection class IP 65 for our PROTEC plastic enclosures when fitted with the seal kit (accessory, please order separately). All three standard sizes: 140/180 and 220 are certified. The tests were conducted by an independent external testing institute. This means that the enclosures effectively protect sensitive electronics even under harsh operating conditions.

In the case of special modifications or the installation of accessories, we recommend that you finished products should be re-certified to confirm the rating.
