On this page you will find current press information from OKW Gehäusesysteme.
An electronic device consists of many different components, which all have be efficiently combined with each other to ensure optimum, user-oriented functionality. The joint distribution partnership between OKW Gehäusesysteme, ANSMANN AG and Hoffmann + Krippner offers an individual and efficient product solution.
The RAILTEC B enclosure range by OKW has now been extended by new variants for applications requiring larger installation compartments. Different connection levels, high and low, allow the highly individual assembly of components in the plastic enclosures. The 3 new versions in the widths of 2, 4, 6 and 9 modules integrate seamlessly into the comprehensive range of enclosures.
With the new EVOTEC enclosure range, OKW Gehäusesysteme offers a modern desktop application. With their robust construction and yet attractive, ergonomic design, these enclosures are ideal for tough working environments. In addition, different operating fronts offer enormous scope for design.
The new STYLE-CASE hand-held enclosure by OKW Gehäusesysteme combines top-level ergonomics with modern design. A pleasant touch sensation as well as the sweeping design make work easier in all applications. The plastic enclosure is ideal for remote control units and controllers as well as for mobile data recording in medical technology, in the home and in industry.
OKW Gehäusesysteme has extended its standard COM-KNOBS series of tuning knobs by including covers with a metallic look. The elegant appearance of the tuning knobs in a matt chrome finish adds a special enhancement.
For the MINITEC EM mobile enclosure, OKW Gehäusesysteme now offers suitable intermediate rings with an integrated recess for a USB interface. This range of enclosures features a particularly compact format. With the help of this interface, portable solutions become possible, for example compact measuring units with data recording as data logger sticks.
OKW Gehäusesysteme GmbH has a versatile standard range of design-oriented plastic enclosures and tuning knobs. However, the desire for individualisation can also be fulfilled by our own in-house service centre. All conceivable technologies are used to adapt the products to specific customer requirements.
The new product catalogue by OKW Gehäusesysteme differs from its predecessors. For the first time there will be two versions, an enclosure catalogue and an order overview, which will inform you with various content items which will complement each other. All new products and product enhancements since the last issue have been integrated.
OKW Gehäusesysteme has added a new vertical DIN rail mount housing to its enclosure portfolio that is uniquely supplied complete with terminal blocks, suitable for DIN EN 60715 TH35 and features a clip together design for fast assembly.
The new BODY-CASE is the first wearable enclosure by OKW Gehäusesysteme and is ideal for applications on or near the body. Thanks to its small, compact format, it is perfect for wearing on the body: on your arm, around your neck, in shirt and trouser pockets or carried loose in an article of clothing. The enclosure fulfils its function in the simplest way, without restricting the user in his or her activities and without being conspicuous.
OKW Gehäusesysteme has developed a folding enclosure made of translucent material for the single-board computer Raspberry PI B+, PI 2 B, PI 3 model B and Asus Tinker Board. The RASPBERRY-CASE consists of one single part, and can be assembled easily and without tools. The board is optimally held in the enclosure using the film hinge principle.
With the new CONNECT, OKW Gehäusesysteme presents a versatile and compact plastic enclosure for wired applications. It consists of two enclosure shells which are easily and reliably joined together by means of a concealed locking edge. The two end sides are designed in such a way that either they are closed or they can be fitted with cable glands. The possible applications include security and building services systems, computer peripherals and network technology, data transfer, measuring and control engineering as well as medical technology.
In addition to its diverse range of standard plastic enclosures and tuning knobs, OKW Gehäusesysteme also offers production in other special materials. Depending on requirements and intended use, the enclosures can be produced in special colours or in flame-resistant material.
The CARRYTEC M, the enclosure with the handle, is now also available as a flat version as an alternative to the existing version with the high bottom part. The new version has a reduced installation depth and is ideally suited to devices in which a flat volume has to be packaged. However, it still offers enough room for interfaces while retaining its slim appearance.
The new SYNERGY range of enclosures combines the advantages of the attractive material combination of aluminium and plastic with an extremely elegant look. The purist enclosure design uses the basic geometrical shapes of square, rectangular, circular and oval. The combination of three sizes for each basic shape, each in three different heights, means 36 enclosures which offer optimum protection as well as the sophisticated presentation of the electronics. The potential applications include computer peripherals, network technology, building and safety technology as well as medical and therapeutic applications, to name but a few.
Odenwälder Kunststoffwerke Gehäusesysteme GmbH has relaunched its website www.okw.com. Permanent further development in favour of customer friendliness is part of the OKW corporate concept. OKW has accordingly revised its website, which has been online in its present form since 2004. It now uses the latest state of technology to inform and support users.
The new DATEC-COMPACT range of mobile enclosures has been given a robust design and offers an ergonomic shape to give you a secure hold of the enclosure. This allows fatigue-free operation in a wide variety of situations. Through the use of a UV-resistant, flame-resistant material ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0), an already foamed-in seal and the resulting protection class IP 65, the DATEC-COMPACT is ideal for indoor as well as for outdoor applications.
The INTERFACE-TERMINAL range of enclosures was specially developed for the installation of large-volume operating elements, graphics displays and touch screens with diagonals of 6.4"/8.4" and 10.4". Depending on requirements, the range of enclosures can be used either vertically or horizontally. Besides the existing application options – as a mobile and/or desktop version, wall-mounted by means of a flat or inclined station – standard commercial iPads can now also be installed in the INTERFACE-TERMINAL.
For 60 years now the iF product design award has been a globally recognised seal of quality for excellent product design. The iF brand has established itself internationally as a symbol for outstanding design services.
We are pleased to inform you that in the „Industry” category, the OKW BLOB mobile enclosure has won the iF product design award 2014 and is one of the winners of the renowned iF label – awarded from a total of 3,249 submissions.
The flat design of the new NET-BOX series of wall mounted enclosures gives you plenty of scope for installing many different electronics assemblies, smaller displays and large-volume connectors. The highlight is located in the lower part: wall mounting is effected on the right and left, and in between there is a large-volume surface for interfaces. When the wiring for the electronics has been completed, the connectors are elegantly covered with a lid – all this without any visible screw connections. However, the connections always remain accessible.
The new OKW general catalogue, which has just been published, differs significantly from previous issues. The content-related appearance has been completely redesigned. Product selection has been placed in the foreground. The information content has been increased by a large number of function and application-oriented product photos.
In the past, the instruments, sensors and accessories of equipment often had to be stowed in separate bags and cases. Not only did this mean having to use additional utensils that were frequently unwieldy to transport, it also ruled out the option of preconnecting interfaces for immediate use.
As a terminal and electronic enclosure, the new IN-BOX range by OKW Gehäusesysteme GmbH offers many different options. A total of 9 basic sizes in different heights, a high level of robustness and impact strength (IK07-ABS / IK08-PC) coupled with technical refinement make the plastic enclosures highly interesting for industrial applications, e.g. as control and monitoring units, measuring units, sensor applications, alarm enclosures etc.
