OKW has extended its Minitec enclosure range, which is suitable for applications such as medical devices, personal safety, detection, monitoring, emergency call, audio and remote-control electronics.

The multi-coloured, pocket-size housings have been designed for personal electronic devices that can be carried in the hand or on a key ring, wrist strap or lanyard.

The Minitec range consists of two basic designs: Edge (rectangular-style cases) and Drop (droplet-style cases).

The Edge models are now available in three larger sizes, measuring 78mm in length, 48mm in width and 20mm, 24mm or 26mm in height.

The extra heights provide additional internal space for the printed circuit board (PCB), miniature keypad or other components.

When taking into account the new sizes, and all the different styles, formats and colour options, more than 200 individual Minitec enclosures can be configured by the electronics designer.

The range now consists of eight individual cases sizes, with dimensions ranging from 51 x 32 x 13mm to 84 x 53 x 19mm.

Each case consists of a top part, a bottom part and a soft intermediate ring.

The top and base parts are moulded in off-white or lava-grey ABS or black infrared transparent PMMA (UL 94 HB).

The intermediate rings are moulded in soft-touch TPE in four standard colours: volcano grey, orange, lime green and bright blue.

The intermediate rings are available plain or with moulded eyelets or strap loops for fitting the accessory key ring, wrist strap or lanyards.

The recessed top part is designed for locating a membrane keypad or a product label.

The Edge style is also offered with a smooth top for fitting rubber keypads.

Location bosses are moulded in the base parts for mounting PCBs and components, and the cases are assembled using a single self-tapping fixing screw.

Prices start at GBP5.

OKW can supply the enclosures machined with holes for keypads, connectors or light-emitting diodes (LEDs), plus silk-screen-printed legends and logos and electromagnetic compatibility shielding.
