OKW Extends Its ‘CARRYTEC’ Range of Portable Enclosures
12 June 2012
OKW has added new models and a station to the ’CARRYTEC’ range of portable plastic enclosures. The new larger ‘Size M’ models offer more internal space for the electronics, and the station is specially designed for charging and data transfer when the equipment is not being carried.
Typical applications will include medical and wellness equipment, data recording and monitoring, communications technology, safety systems, measuring and control instruments, and agricultural and forest management electronics.
The ‘CARRYTEC’ series is now available with external dimensions of 222 x 205 x 80 mm (Size S) and 270 x 247 x 91 mm (Size M). The range is offered in two standard materials: ABS (UL 94 HB) in off-white (RAL 9002) for indoor use, and fibreglass reinforced polyamide (PA GV) in lava grey (NCS S 7502-G) for tougher outdoor applications. An IP 54 rated sealing kit is also available as an accessory.
The enclosures are very easy to assemble. The top, bottom and handle grip mouldings are assembled by five security screws (Torx T10). The handle grip is moulded in soft touch TPE material for comfortable carrying.
Membrane keypads, displays and touch screens can be fitted to the recessed top section. Connectors and switches can be mounted to inset flat sections on the underside. Screw pillars are provided in the top and bottom for fitting the PCBs. Prices start at £??.
The new station is designed for charging and data transfer, and can be mounted on a wall, machine housing, or simply used on a desk. A snap-lock holds the ‘CARRYTEC’ enclosure in the station at a convenient viewing angle of 15o. Data transfer and charging is facilitated by 5-pole contacts fitted to the case and station base parts.
Other accessories include battery compartments for five 1.5V AA cells and a medical holding clamp for round tubes or rails.
OKW can supply the ‘CARRYTEC’ enclosures with additional holes for keypads, connectors, controls and displays. It can also silk-screen print legends and logos and provide EMC shielding on the inside.
