OKW expand Soft Case Hand-held Enclosure range

27 October 2010

OKW Enclosures have expanded their range of soft case handheld enclosures with the addition of the XL series as a result of customer demand.

Applications for the new soft case XL range of hand held enclosures typically include data capture equipment, medical devices, mobile data loggers and portable instruments among others with the visual impact and design quality of modern high value electronic devices being enhanced by the 'soft case' ergonomic profile. Suitable for wide format displays and keypads, the design is quite unique among handheld enclosures.

The top of the enclosure has a wide recessed area for locating an LCD or membrane keypad, and a raised panel on the long edge can be used for mounting USB, power or serial connectors and controls. The XL series of ‘Soft case’ enclosures are moulded in off-white or lava grey ABS, or in black infra-red permeable PMMA (UL 94 HB). The three larger size cases are available with battery compartments for fitting 1.5V AAA, 1.5V AA or 9V cells.

With the addition of the ‘XL’ series there are now four standard sizes with external dimensions ranging from: 82mm x 51mm x 14mm up to 150mm x 92mm x 28mm. Screw pillars are provided in the top and base parts for fitting PCBs, and the cases are assembled by four self-tapping screws.

Accessories include intermediate ring mouldings which increase the internal height. These are offered in the three standard case colours, or chrome plated, or in soft TPE material which provides IP54 sealing. The TPE material also offers bump protection. Prices for the new ‘XL’ models start at £14.

OKW Enclosures can supply the ‘soft cases’ with additional holes for the push-buttons, connectors and displays etc, plus silk-screen printed legends and logos, and EMC shielding.
