OKW adds applications webpages for enclosures

OKW has added a new Applications section to its website to help design engineers specify the best enclosures for their electronics.

The webpage is divided into eight sections:

  • Medicine/Laboratory/Wellness
  • Measuring/Control/Automation
  • Mechanical Engineering/Plant Building
  • Automotive Engineering/Construction Equipment/Military/Aviation
  • Heating/Climate/Environment
  • Security/Building Services Systems
  • Communication
  • Mining/Gas/Oil

Each application page includes a range of examples showing how easy it is to customise a standard plastic enclosure into a housing that enhances the electronics inside. Links are provided to the OKW enclosures used for each device so engineers can specify solutions more easily.

The biggest list of solutions can be found on the Medical, Wellness and Laboratory page, highlighting the sector’s importance as a key growth area. Medical technology housed in OKW enclosures includes bed controllers, data loggers, dental and laser therapy equipment, dose meters and radio pagers.

Technology featured in the Applications section spans the range of OKW products: wearable, handheld, wired, wall mount and desktop enclosures. OKW also manufactures flush mounting enclosures, portable instrument enclosures, universal enclosures, DIN rail enclosures, potting boxes and tuning knobs.

Accessories offered by OKW include eyelets, lanyards and straps, pocket/belt clips, key rings, brackets, carry cases, cable glands, screws, enclosure feet, contacts and connections, battery compartments and holders, USB covers, hinges and locks. The company also offers customisation services for bespoke colours, EMC shielding, CNC machining, lacquering, printing of logos and legends, membrane keyboards, display windows, adhesive foils, plastic and aluminium panels, installation and assembly.

The Applications section can be found at www.okw.com.au/en/Applications.htm.
