Cases for wearable gadgets

23 March 2016 Enclosures, Racks, Cabinets & Panel Products

OKW’s Body-Case is a fully wearable enclosure for wearing on the arm, around the neck, clipped to a shirt or trouser pocket, or carried loose in an article of clothing. It has a modern appearance with highly polished surfaces and a matt TPE sealing ring, and allows for easy differentiation through the use of individual, exclusive watch straps (18 mm wide).

Meeting protection classes IP65/7 and moulded in ASA plastic with high UV protection, the cases facilitate the design of wearable devices that offer the user easy operation with the help of pushbuttons or touch screens, at the press of a button and with the help of voice commands or gestures, as well as wireless networking.

The top part of the enclosure is available with or without a recessed surface for the protection of a decor foil or membrane keyboard. It is assembled with four high-quality stainless steel screws with Torx drive, and two spring bars are included for mounting accessories.

Power can be supplied internally by round or button cells which are mounted directly on the PCB, or with the use of a rechargeable battery with copper loop for charging the device inductively.
