Sponsored by OKW: OKW has completed the development of its unique CARRYTEC range of portable enclosures by adding new larger size 'L' models to the existing size 'M' and 'S' versions.
The CARRYTEC series is designed for portable electronics equipment and is available with optional docking stations for charging and data transfer when the equipment is not being carried. Typical applications will include medical and wellness equipment, data recording and monitoring, communications technology, measuring instruments, and agricultural and forest management electronics. The new size 'L' models have external dimensions of 348 x 303 x 117 mm and are offered in two standard materials: ABS (UL 94 HB) in off-white (RAL 9002) for indoor use, and fibreglass reinforced polyamide (PA GV) in lava grey for tougher outdoor use. An IP 54 sealing kit is also available as an accessory. CARRYTEC enclosures are very easy to assemble. The top, bottom and handle grip mouldings are assembled by five security screws (Torx T10). The handle grip is moulded in soft touch TPE material for comfortable carrying. The top section has a recessed area for membrane keypads, displays and touch screens. Inset flat sections on the underside are designed for mounting connectors or control switches. Screw pillars are provided in the top and bottom for fitting PCBs, displays and assemblies. Prices for size 'L' start at £66. The docking station can be mounted on a wall, machine housing, or simply used on a desk. A snap-lock holds the enclosure in the station at a convenient viewing angle of 15o. Data transfer and charging is facilitated by 5-pole contacts fitted to the case and station base parts. Other 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 fully customised with additional holes, silk-screen print legends and logos, and EMC shielding on the inside.
