OKW extends BODY-CASE wearable enclosures portfolio

OKW has added a new size M and two stations to its BODY-CASE range of fully wearable enclosures.

BODY-CASE is OKW’s first enclosure that can be worn just like a watch and each enclosure is supplied with two 18mm spring bars for a wrist strap. Using an optional fastening kit, BODY-CASE can also be worn on a lanyard, clipped to a belt/pocket, fitted to a key ring or carried loose.

BODY-CASE has been designed for a wide range of wearable electronics applications including tracking and monitoring; emergency call and notification; bio-feedback sensors for healthcare, wellness and sports fitness. It can also be used for industrial electronics.

Power can be supplied by round or button cells on the PCB or by a rechargeable battery with a copper loop for charging the device inductively.

BODY-CASE is now available in two sizes: new M (50 x 41 x 16mm) or the existing L (55 x 46 x 17mm). Both sizes can be specified either with or without a recessed top for a membrane keypad or product label.

Each case comprises three parts: a top section with PCB location bars; a bottom section with four pre-moulded drilling centres for use when fitting contact pins (drilling required); a soft-touch matt sealing ring. The PCB is held securely between the top and bottom sections after assembly with four tamperproof Torx M2 x 6mm screws.

Protection levels are high: IP 65, IP 67. The highly polished top and bottom are moulded from Traffic White (RAL 9016) UV-stable ASA while the sealing ring is Lava or Vermilion (RAL 2002) TPE for enhanced ingress protection.
