OKW has launched IN-BOX – its toughest ever range of industrial-strength plastic enclosures.

IN-BOX has all the design features and attention to detail you would expect from OKW but has been built to cope with extremely demanding industrial environments.

These robust IP66, IP67 and NEMA 4X electronics enclosures are manufactured from ABS (UL 94 HB). They are also available in Polycarbonate (UL 94 V-2).

The ABS version of IN-BOX is impact-rated to IK07 (2 joules) while the stronger Polycarbonate version is rated to IK08 (5 joules).

Applications for IN-BOX wall mounted housings will include industrial electronics such as digital and analog instrumentation, sensors, interfaces and security systems.

This highly versatile range of enclosures is also ideal for electrical applications such as heating, climate and ventilation systems, machine controllers and construction equipment.

IN-BOX is a smart and modern design with a concealed mounting or exterior brackets. All the lids (including a transparent Polycarbonate UL 94 HB option) feature a recess for mounting a large membrane keypad or product label.

There are internal screw pillars for PCBs, mounting plates or for enclosing DIN rails. There is also a quick action stainless steel locking screw. Options include concealed internal hinges and a security kit.

IN-BOX plastic electronics housings are available in 16 sizes ranging from 3.30” x 3.22” x 2.16” to 11.89” x 9.13” x 4.33”.

Their standard color is light gray (RAL 7035) but a huge range of custom colors is also available.

Customizing options for IN-BOX enclosures also include CNC milling and drilling, silk-screen and tampo printing of legends and logos, RFI shielding and assembly of components.

OKW Enclosures, Inc, Vice President, Sales, Sean Bailey, said: “IN-BOX is the toughest range of enclosures that OKW has ever manufactured. Not only are they rated to IP66 and IP67 but they are also impact rated to cope with harsh industrial environments – perfect for really challenging applications."
