The new size ‘S’ enclosures will give electronics designers an even greater choice, enabling them to specify the perfect dual face housing for smaller devices.
(Vocus) October 13, 2010
OKW has extended its UNITEC range of dual-face sloping front plastic enclosures with the new size ‘S’ series which is available in 12 different models.
These highly attractive UNITEC enclosures have two operating faces for face-to-face applications, such as a doctor with a patient, or a sales person with a customer.
The two inclined operating panels are mounted at right angles to each other, allowing simultaneous input of data on one side and readout of the data on the other.
A user can input data via a keypad mounted on the sloping top surface while another person can read the display on the front surface.
UNITEC plastic enclosures also have the unique capability of being able to mount a full wraparound membrane keypad or label, making them ideal for these dual-face applications.
UNITEC enclosures are available with optional recess depths on the operating faces of 0.02” for graphic labels or 0.06” for membrane keypads.
The range has been designed to complement OKW’s other desktop and handheld instrument enclosures, giving electronics engineers a greater choice of standard plastic enclosures to suit their PCBs.
Typical applications include:
- medical devices
- wellness and sports diagnostics equipment
- point-of-sale systems
- data acquisition systems
- access and information terminals
- building installations equipment
- data systems engineering
- analysis diagnostics and therapy applications
- measuring and control
- industrial regulation.
UNITEC enclosures are molded in off-white ABS (UL 94 HB) and consist of a top part, rear-facing front part and base panel. The case parts interlock and are secured by just two self-tapping screws.
The new size ‘S’ models have external dimensions of 4.92” x 6.96” x 2.71”/0.86”, offering a more compact solution to the existing size ‘M’ models which measure 5.82” x 8.26” x 3.14”/0.98”. They are a valuable new addition to OKW’s already wide range of ABS enclosures.
Both sizes of enclosures can be specified with a battery compartment for 3 or 5 1.5V AA battery cells. The battery compartment has a clip-on lid which can also be screw fixed for added security – typically required for medical applications.
Internal screw pillars enable the easy installation of PCBs and other electronic assemblies. Non-slip self-adhesive feet are available as an accessory.
UNITEC plastic enclosures can be used as desktop enclosures or they can be wall mounted. A simple to use wall-suspension element is available as an accessory, enabling the case to be mounted in different orientations. Prices start at $33.
OKW can supply any UNITEC plastic enclosure with additional holes for the push-buttons, connectors and displays, plus silk-screen printed legends and logos, and RFI/EMI shielding.
OKW Enclosures, Inc, Vice President, Sales, Sean Bailey said: “UNITEC has been a very popular range since its launch. Its dual faces and unique ability to mount wraparound membrane keyboards or labels have proven to be a winning combination.
“So it was only a matter of time before we extended the range. The new size ‘S’ enclosures will give electronics designers an even greater choice, enabling them to specify the perfect dual face housing for smaller devices.”
- Innovative keypad enclosures for face-to-face electronic devices. For example, user inputs data on top and another person reads the displays/printouts at the front
- Highly attractive contoured design suitable for desktop and wall mounted applications
- Sloping front and top sections with optional recess depths
- Recessed areas 0.02” or 0.06” deep for product labels or membrane keypads
- Uniquely, it is possible to have an all-over product label
- Optional battery compartments for 3 or 5 1.5V AA cells
- Internal screw pillars for mounting PCBs.
The new ‘S’ sized UNITEC enclosures are the latest addition to OKW’s wide range of electronic enclosures, following the launch of the Interface-Terminal configurable plastic enclosures earlier this year.
OKW plastic enclosures provide electronics engineers with high quality standard housing solutions that enhance products while at the same shortening time to market and reducing overall project costs.
The large number of enclosure ranges produced by OKW – all designed to complement each other – means that engineers can specify attractive, top quality standard housings where previously only a custom-made housing may have sufficed.
OKW standard plastic enclosures can also be transformed into custom enclosures with options that include CNC milling and drilling of holes and cut outs for push-buttons, connectors and displays, plus silk-screen printed legends and logos, RFI/EMI shielding, painting or molding in alternative colors and molding in alternative materials.
OKW is pioneering the new generation of configurable plastic enclosures such as Interface-Terminal and Art-Case. These modular ranges each offer a choice of parts that can be configured together quickly and easily to provide versatile solutions that can be wall mounted, desk mounted or handheld.
