CARRYTEC – The New Portable Enclosures from OKW

Sponsored by OKW: OKW has launched the all new 'CARRYTEC' range of plastic enclosures for portable electronics equipment. These innovative enclosures have a modern contoured design and feature an integrated handle which is ergonomically designed for convenient carrying during operation.

Typical applications will include medical and wellness equipment, data recording and monitoring, communications technology, safety systems, measuring and control instruments, and agricultural and forest management electronics.

At launch the 'CARRYTEC' series is available with external dimensions of 222 x 205 x 80 mm (Size S). An additional version (Size M) will be added to the range in the spring of 2012.

The 'CARRYTEC' enclosures are moulded in two different materials: off-white ABS (UL 94 HB) which is ideal for indoor use such as medical equipment, and lava grey fibreglass reinforced polyamide (PA GV) which is suitable for tougher outdoor applications such as machine controllers. An IP 54 rated sealing kit is also available for extra protection.

The enclosures consist of three moulded parts: top, bottom and handle which are assembled by five Torx T10 security screws. The handle grip, which is moulded in soft touch TPE material, is capture by the top and bottom parts.

The top section has a recessed area for mounting pushbuttons, membrane keypads, displays, or touch screens. Inset sections on the underside are provided for cable connections and switches. The PCBs can be fitted to screw pillars provided in both the top and bottom parts. Prices start at £35.

Accessories include battery compartments for five 1.5V AA cells and a medical holding clamp for round tubes or rails.

OKW can supply the 'CARRYTEC' enclosures with additional holes for keypads, connectors, controls and displays. It can also silk-screen print legends and logos and provide EMC shielding on the inside.

More information on these enclosures can be found on OKW's website.
