CARRYTEC enclosure

Enclosures and tuning knobs for medical applications

Medical technology is a highly regulated but also continuously growing industry. The focus is on people – products, equipment and processes are constantly being developed and manufactured for the prevention, diagnostics and therapy of diseases. High-quality empty enclosures and tuning knobs by OKW make a significant contribution here.

Head of Marketing at OKW Gehäusesysteme

Medical technology is an vital market for us ! In day-to-day use by doctors, nurses or patients themselves, products are required for a variety of applications: whether as emergency systems, observation and alarm equipment, analysis/diagnostics/therapy devices, tracking and monitoring, the medical IoT, AAL systems and ergonomic remote controls (wireless or wired). OKW has suitable solutions in its product portfolio for all these medical "cases". Here are some examples:

CARRYTEC enclosures for medical devices

CARRYTEC - plastic enclosures with functional handle

The integrated handle and the particularly large surface that is ideal for user interfaces are the key features of the CARRYTEC enclosure range. But there is much more technical know-how behind it, and this allows a wide range of possible applications in medical and laboratory technology. Mobile use, e.g. as a patient simulation system, can be effected easily and ergonomically thanks to the functional carrying handle. The CARRYTEC is available from stock in 3 sizes, each in the colours lava or off-white (RAL 9002): size S has the dimensions 222 x 205 x 80 mm, M has 270 x 247 x 91 / 42 mm and the L version 348 x 303 x 117 mm (W x H x D). Separate protection bags for storing instruments, sensors and accessories can be attached to the sides of the enclosures in the S and M versions. Thanks to its generous installation depth, CARRYTEC offers plenty of space for interfaces, yet has a slim appearance.

The CARRYTEC can be attached to rectangular DIN standard rails or round tubes with a separately available holding clamp. Rear installation on tripod or support arm systems - then rotated by 180° - allows fast positioning/alignment of the viewing and operating panels.

BODY-CASE emergency device BODY-CASE alarm system

BODY-CASE - comfortable to wear on the body

In medical technology, not only large-volume devices are required, ergonomic handheld enclosures and portable technologies (Wearable Technologies) are also becoming increasingly popular. They collect and supply important data, e.g. on patients’ health status, they report and monitor the location of persons in care facilities who are in need of help, allow an alarm or emergency call to be made, and so on. The BODY-CASE was developed precisely for such purposes. The enclosure shells are highly polished and are made of ASA (UL 94 HB) in traffic white (RAL 9016). The matt TPV 50A sealing ring is available in the colours vermilion (RAL 2002) as well as lava (similar to anthracite) and guarantees the high protection class IP65. The dimensions of the BODY-CASE L are 55 x 46 x 17 mm (L x W x D), while the M version has the dimensions 48 x 40 x 14.5 mm. With the help of the wide range of accessories such as wrist straps, belt / pocket clips, carrying straps or lanyards, the units can be carried comfortably on the wrist, on clothing or around the neck. After use, a station ensures safe storage of the wearable device.

TUNING KNOBS – for the reliable operation of medical devices

OKW Gehäusesysteme has a wide range of modern tuning knobs for operating medical devices, such as intensive care ventilators etc.


The TOP-KNOB range of tuning knobs is particularly suitable for rotary potentiometers with round shaft ends in accordance with DIN 41 591 as well as flat shaft ends with diameters of 6/4.6 mm. Mounting is effected from the side by means of a threaded pin, or simply by pushing them onto shafts with flattened ends. The lateral screw fixture is innovatively concealed by functional marking elements in different colours and shapes. TOP-KNOBS are available in 5 diameters (16/20/24/31 mm and 40 mm) as well as in the two standard colours nero and volcano.

TOP-KNOBS product page


The main characteristic of COM-KNOBS is their modern appearance. Assembly is effected by means of a tried and tested collet fixture for electromechanical rotary potentiometers with round shaft ends in accordance with DIN 41 591. The design of this series of tuning knobs is based on that of the TOP-KNOBS with an identical choice of colours and materials as well as the same 5 sizes (with an additional sixth version with a diameter of 50 mm). This allows a homogeneous appearance if both knob types are used.

As standard, the series of tuning knobs consists of three components: the basic body, the cover and the marking element. Closed versions without corresponding marking elements are also available for universal use or if additional parts such as dials are required. To ensure rational handling while operating or adjusting the end devices, covers with finger recesses are available for the two largest variants, 40 and 50 mm.
