OKW Launches Tough New IP66/67 - IK07/08 IN-BOX Plastic Enclosures
8 January 2013
OKW has launched IN-BOX – its toughest ever range of industrial-strength plastic electronic enclosures.
IN-BOX has all the design features and attention to detail you would expect from OKW but has been designed to cope with extremely demanding industrial environments. Typical applications will include digital and analog instrumentation, sensors, interfaces and security systems.
IN-BOX is a smart and modern design which features concealed mounting screws. All the lids (including the transparent Polycarbonate models) feature a recess for mounting a large membrane keypad or product label.
16 standard sizes are available with external dimensions ranging from 84 x 82 x 55 mm to 302 x 232 x 110 mm. The housings are rated IP66 and IP67, and are offered moulded in
ABS (UL 94 HB) or Polycarbonate (UL 94 V-2). The standard colour is light grey (RAL 7035).
The ABS models are impact-rated to IK07 (2 joules) while the stronger Polycarbonate models are rated to IK08 (5 joules).
Internal screw pillars are provided in the top and base for fitting PCBs, displays, mounting plates or DIN rails. The lids are mounted by quick action stainless steel locking screws. Prices for the enclosures start at £12.
Accessories include an internal mounting plate in insulating material; a wall mounting kit featuring four external mounting blocks and screws; an interior hinge kit with two hinge mouldings and screws and a security kit with two mouldings and lead tags.
Customising options for IN-BOX enclosures also include CNC milling and drilling, silk-screen and tampo printing of legends and logos, EMC shielding and assembly of components.
