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.

New OKW Enclosure Catalogue 2016/2017

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.

BODY-CASE – Small enclosure with flair

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.

CONNECT - an attractive enclosure for wired applications

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.

Enclosure made of special material

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.

CARRYTEC M enclosure with flat bottom part

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.

SYNERGY – Harmonious mixture of materials

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.

The website of OKW Gehäusesysteme has a sparkling new design

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.

Mobile solution for today´s electronics

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.

Installation solution for iPads

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.

iF-Design award
for enclosure series "BLOB"

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.

Elegant central control unit

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.

New OKW catalogue 2012/2013 even more informative

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.

CARRYTEC - Everything to hand

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.
