Ergonomic Keypad Enclosures Now In Seven Sizes
18 June 2013
OKW’s popular COMTEC range of sloping front keypad enclosures is now available in seven standard sizes. These modern housings feature an attractive ‘softline’ design with an ergonomically inclined (10º) operating area, which guarantees comfortable operation of the controls.
Typical applications will include telecoms equipment, intercoms, surveillance devices, data collection, point-of-sale terminals and a broad range of instrumentation.
The COMTEC enclosures are moulded in fine textured ABS (UL 94 HB). Two standard colours are offered: off-white, RAL 9002 or black, RAL 9005. Custom colours and materials also available on request.
Each enclosure consists of a top and base moulding, and optionally, a clip-on battery compartment lid. Assembly is by an interlocking system at the front and by two screws at the rear. This also allows easier access if the cases are mounted on a wall.
The range now includes seven standard sizes with external dimensions from 120 x 150 x 43 mm to 290 x 200 x 79 mm. Four sizes are available with a battery compartment
aperture in the base section which is designed for mounting an accessory battery cradle. Three types of battery cradle are offered: one 9V cell, two 9V cells or four 1.5V AA cells.
All models have a recessed area on the top for mounting membrane keypads or product labels. Screw pillars are moulded inside the top and base for mounting PCBs, displays and assemblies. Prices start at £18.
Customising options for COMTEC enclosures include CNC milling and drilling, silk-screen and tampo printing of legends and logos, EMC shielding and assembly of components.
