Body-case wearable plastic enclosures for IIoT

Growth in the IIoT mobile electronics segment is set to boost demand for OKW’s Body-Case (IP 65) wearable plastic enclosures.

The ergonomic Body-Case is intended for IoT/IIoT, automation, measuring and control, data recording/transmission, geo-location, emergency call/notification, safety technology, mobile stock/sales logging, digital communications, medical, sports and wellness electronics.

The wristwatch-style Body-Case fits a standard 18 mm watch strap and can also be worn on a neck lanyard, clipped to a belt or key ring, or carried loose.

The enclosures are suitable for personal electronics because they are comfortable, yet also discreet. Their ergonomics make wireless technology easy to operate.

There is a choice of top sections – recessed or unrecessed – to accommodate touch screens, membrane keypads, buttons and decor foils. Between the top and bottom sections is a soft-touch seal for added comfort.

The enclosures are assembled with tamperproof Torx screws. Inside, power can be provided by a round/button cell mounted directly on the PCB, or by a rechargeable battery with coils for inductive charging.

The enclosures are available in three standard sizes from 50 x 41 x 14 mm to 62 x 56 x 18 mm. The main case is moulded from UV-stable ASA (UL 94 HB) in traffic white (RAL 9016) as standard. The TPV seal is offered in two colours: vermillion (RAL 2002) or lava.

Accessories include docking stations, wrist strap, spring bar tool, eyelet/pocket clip kit, carrying strap/lanyard and key ring.

OKW can supply Body-Case fully customised. Services include CNC machining, printing, laser marking, decor foils and assembly of accessories.
