OKW has extended its advanced ERGO-CASE hand held electronics housings with six new smaller size XS models. The new extra small cases are ideal for compact hand held electronic devices and have an ergonomically contoured design which is very comfortable to hold or wear.

The cases can be specified with two lateral eyelets for fitting the device to a wrist strap or belt – or an eyelet in the end for carrying on a lanyard. Typical applications include personal electronics such as medical and wellness equipment, security devices, building access and dosage detectors.

Each ERGO-CASE XS consists of a top, base and intermediate ring (plain, or with one or two eyelets) which are assembled with two self-tapping screws. The enclosures have external dimensions of 3.23” x 2.20” x 0.94” and are molded in ABS (UL 94 HB) in Off-white or Black with the intermediate ring in gray soft-touch TPE elastomer.

The top part has a recessed area for mounting a membrane keypad or product label. Screw pillars in the top section and location pillars in the base section are provided for fitting PCBs and battery assemblies. Prices start at $17. ERGO-CASE is complemented by a wide range of accessories which includes belt clips, wrist straps, belt/arm straps and lanyards.

Customizing options for ERGO-CASE include CNC milling and drilling of holes and cut outs, silk-screen and tampo printing of legends and logos, RFI shielding and assembly of components.

OKW Enclosures, Inc, Vice President, Sales, Sean Bailey, said: “ERGO-CASE is an incredibly versatile range of enclosures – even by our standards. “The new XS size offers a wealth of possibilities for designers of handheld and other personal electronics solutions,” he added.
