A new range of plastic enclosures from OKW offers a selection of sizes, styles and battery compartments. The devices are modern in design and robust in use. They are designed to house many different types of small electronic devices including test and measurement, medical and wellness, peripherals, interfaces and switching equipment etc.

The ‘SHELL-TYPE’ enclosures are moulded in off-white, RAL 9002 ABS (UL 94 HB). Three different types are offered: Type V with a single front panel aperture, Type O with two front panel apertures and Type G which is closed with no front panel apertures. With four standard plan sizes and six standard heights a huge range of models is offered with external dimensions ranging from 85 x 45 x 22 mm to 190 x 38 x 91 mm.

In addition to this, the enclosures are offered with three different battery compartments which accept four battery cell combinations: 2 x 1.5V AA, 4 x 1.5V AA, 1 x 9V and 2 x 9V cells. The battery compartments have a clip-on external access lid.

The latest cases can now be fitted with nickel plated steel spring battery contacts which conform to DIN EN 60601 and are designed to avoid short circuit if the ­batteries are inserted incorrectly.
