OKW has extended its award-winning MINITEC range of pocket-sized plastic enclosures to meet ever increasing customer demand.

These highly attractive multi-colored ABS enclosures have been designed for personal electronic devices which can be carried in the hand or on a key ring, wrist strap or lanyard.

Typical applications include medical devices, personal safety, detection, monitoring, emergency call, audio, alarms and remote control electronics.

The MINITEC range of hand held enclosures consists of two basic designs: EDGE rectangular style cases and DROP droplet style cases.

The EDGE models are now available in three larger sizes: length 3.07”, width 1.89” and heights of 0.79”, 0.94” and 1.02”. The extra heights provide additional internal space for the PCB, miniature keypad or other components.

Electronics designers can now configure more than 200 individual MINITEC small enclosures when all the new sizes, styles, formats and color options are taken into account.

This popular range of PCB enclosures now consists of eight individual case sizes with dimensions ranging from 2.01” x 1.26” x 0.59” to 3.31” x 2.09” x 0.75”.

Each enclosure consists of a top part, bottom part and a soft intermediate ring.

The top and base parts are molded in Off-white or Lava Gray ABS or in Black infra-red transparent PMMA (UL 94 HB).

The intermediate rings are molded in soft touch TPE in four standard colors: Volcano Gray, Orange, Lime Green and Bright Blue. They are available as plain rings or with molded eyelets or strap loops for fitting a key ring, wrist strap or lanyard.

The recessed top part of each enclosure is designed for locating a membrane keypad or product label. The EDGE style is also offered with a smooth top for fitting rubber keypads.

Location bosses are molded in the base parts for mounting PCBs and components. The plastic enclosures are assembled using a single self-tapping fixing screw. Prices start at $5.

OKW can also supply MINITEC as custom enclosures with:

  •     machined holes for keypads, connectors and LEDs
  •     silk-screen printed legends and logos
  •     RFI shielding.
