Category: Enclosure Product of the Year
Growing demand for Covid-19 social distancing warning devices has created a burgeoning new market OKW’s wearable enclosures.
OKW’s BODY-CASE and award-winning MINITEC enclosures are ideal for proximity-warning electronics to help safeguard personnel in warehouses, distribution centres, factories and any other roles where working from home is impossible.
BODY-CASE is OKW’s first wearable enclosure designed to fit a standard 18 mm watchstrap. It can also be worn on a lanyard, clipped to a belt or carried in a pocket.
These robust enclosures have good ingress protection (IP 65). Their easy-to-clean high-gloss finish and tamperproof Torx assembly screws make them perfect for healthcare environments.
BODY-CASE comprises a UV-stable ASA top (with/without recess) and base separated by a soft-touch TPV sealing ring. The enclosures are available in three sizes (50 x 41 x 15 mm to 62 x 56 x 18 mm) in traffic white (RAL 9016) as standard. Accessories include a wrist strap (18 mm), spring bar tool, lanyard, hand strap, charging/data transfer stations, eyelet/pocket clip kit and a Torx T6 screwdriver.
MINITEC won an iF product design award. Like BODY-CASE, it can be fitted to a wrist strap, lanyard, belt, key ring or carried loose. MINITEC is available in two versions: teardrop-shaped D (recessed) and rectangular E (with/without recess).
Both versions comprise top and bottom sections (ABS or infrared-permeable PMMA) separated by a choice of soft-touch SEBS (TPE) intermediate rings, including one for USB connectors. The wide choice of shapes, sizes (51 x 32 x 13 mm to 84 x 53 x 19 mm), colours and intermediate rings creates a huge range of standard permutations. Accessories include wrist, hand and carrying straps/lanyards, a strap eyelet, key ring and USB cover.
