New colour choice for flanged IIoT/sensor enclosures

13-09-2023 | OKW Enclosures | Industrial

OKW’s flanged MINI-DATA-BOX plastic enclosures are now offered in a new two-colour option: the base is traffic grey A (RAL 7042), and the top is traffic white (RAL 9016).

The enclosure is a small, ‘go-anywhere’ housing excellent for a range of miniaturised electronics. Applications incorporate IoT/IIoT, automation, environmental technology, measurement and control, security, smart logistics, peripherals, interfaces and ICT.

These smart, modern enclosures are offered with (or without) flanges for rapid installation using either cable ties or screws – making them perfect for installing networks of sensors in smart factories.

The enclosure is available in two shapes: S (square) and E (edge/rectangular). Both provide elegant ‘diamond cut’ bevelling on the top, decreasing weight. Ergonomic contoured corners further enhance the aesthetics, and there are flat surfaces for connectors.

These robust enclosures provide an all-round tongue and groove joint and an IP65 seal (accessory). Stainless steel Torx assembly screws deter tampering. Inside are fixing supports for PCBs and components at the top and bottom. Also, potting of electronic assemblies is possible.

The enclosure is moulded from ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0) for superior strength and UV stability. There are four plan sizes from 40mm x 40mm to 70mm x 50mm, and two heights: 15mm and 20mm.

The enclosures are obtainable in traffic white (RAL 9016) and anthracite grey (RAL 7016) as standard. Only the flanged version is offered as standard in the new traffic grey A/traffic white colour combination.

The company can supply the enclosures fully customised ready for installation of components. Customisation services include machining, lacquering, printing, laser marking, EMC shielding and assembly of accessories.
