Smart-Box - .PDF file.

OKW has announced that it has extended its Smart-Box range of plastic enclosures.

The IP66 enclosures have been designed for modern industrial electronics.

Typical applications include heating and air-conditioning controllers, monitoring systems, safety and security equipment and test and measurement devices.

The case-fixings screws and wall-mounting shafts are hidden behind two hinged trims, which are fitted in the lid.

The lid trims hinge wide to allow screwdriver access and are then clipped into the closed position.

As a result, no visible fixings can be seen once the unit is mounted on the wall or machine.

The enclosures are moulded in flame-retardant ABS rated to UL 94 V-0.

The standard colour is light grey (RAL 7035) and the cases have a modern fine textured surface finish.

Internal screw pillars are moulded in the top and base parts for mounting printed circuit boards, DIN rails and displays.

Prices start at GBP20.

The Smart-Box enclosures are fully insulated to VDE 0100 and sealed to protection class IP66 for indoor and outdoor use.

The moulded gasket is designed for simple replacement during long-term maintenance, according to the company.

The range is now available in six standard sizes, with external dimensions from 120 x 90 x 50mm to 280 x 170 x 60mm.

The cases are assembled by four rust-proof stainless-steel fixing screws, which are positioned outside of the sealed interior.

An optional key lock can also be fitted for security.

To aid installation and servicing, two plastic lid supports are also provided and the wall-fixing dimensions are moulded onto the underside of the cases.

OKW can supply Smart-Box enclosures with additional holes for push buttons, connectors and displays, as well as silk-screen printed legends and logos and EMC shielding.
