OKW’s Walltec wall-mount enclosures target applications in controller units for heating, air conditioning and lighting, flowmeters, process controls, timers, monitoring equipment and security systems.

Replacing the Type S series, the new enclosures have a more modern and robust design, and – being rated to IP 65 – offer a much higher protection class, according to the company.

Two standard types are available: type I has an open front section for fitting an aluminium front panel or a recessed cover and is moulded ABS (UL 94 HB) for regular applications, while type II is fitted with a transparent hinged front cover with quick-action lock and is moulded in polycarbonate (UL 94 5V), making it suitable for industrial applications.

Walltec enclosures are available in six basic sizes with external dimensions from 166 x 160 x 80mm to 383 x 316 x 134mm.

All models have a separate terminal compartment with removable lid for independent access to the cables and terminals during installation and servicing.

The main internal area has guide grooves and screw bosses for fitting PCBs, mounting plates and assemblies.

Both types can be fitted with an accessory anodised aluminium front panel for mounting the controls and displays.

Type I can also be fitted with a moulded ABS cover that has a recessed area for mounting a membrane keypad or a product label.

A three-point mounting system is moulded into the rear part of the Walltec enclosures, making it easy to mount the enclosures to a wall or machine housing.

Accessory external mounting brackets are also available for mounting sealed units.

Prices for the enclosures start at GBP42.

Other accessories include an internal mounting plate for the electronic assemblies, a DIN rail mounting kit for the whole enclosure and security screws for the transparent cover.

OKW can supply the Walltec enclosures with additional holes for keypads, connectors, controls and displays, plus silk-screen printed legends and logos, and EMC shielding.
