New Desk Stations For SMART-CASE Ergonomic Handheld Enclosures
Handheld electronics often require frequent battery charging or regular connection to a PC or machine for data transfer.
OKW has provided a professional solution for this by developing specific desk/charging stations for the SMART-CASE plastic enclosures. They fit the cases exactly and have a common design theme.
The new desk stations for SMART-CASE PCB enclosures are available in three versions to suit case sizes M, L and XL. They are molded in off-white or black ABS.
A contoured aperture is provided in the top for inserting the case. Knockouts on the underside cater for the data/power cable. Connections between the station and case are provided by gold plated male and female contacts.
SMART-CASE ABS enclosures have a natural organic design which is contoured to fit comfortably in the hand.
Typical applications include remote controls of all types – either wireless or with cable connection. The SMART-CASE range is especially suitable for use as instrument enclosures in hospitals and social fields, as well as in industry and households.
SMART-CASE has proven to be highly popular with manufacturers of medical technology because of its range of sizes, options and accessories which include bed clamps, wall holders, lanyards and now desk stations.
SMART-CASE plastic electronics enclosures are available in four standard sizes ranging from 2.27” x 1.40” x 0.75” to 6.61” x 2.92” x 1.39”. Standard color choices are Off-white (RAL 9002) or Black (RAL 9005) ABS. They can also be molded in PMMA (UL 94 HB) plexiglass for infra-red permeability.
The smallest size XS has a key ring loop while the larger sizes have a recessed top section for fitting a membrane keypad.
For outdoor applications, these industrial plastic enclosures can be fitted with an IP65 sealing kit. Other options include battery compartments for 1.5V AAA, 1.5V AA or 9V cells, belt/pocket clips and wall holders. Prices for the cases start at $6.
