Aluminium profile enclosures

21 March 2018 Enclosures, Racks, Cabinets & Panel Products

The new Smart-Terminal aluminium profile enclosures from OKW feature a high-quality matt anodised finish. These robust, attractive cases offer plenty of space for large-volume electronic assemblies, for example touch screens, display modules, PCBs etc. They present a variety of technical advantages, individual profile lengths on request, and creative designer options for tough industrial display enclosures.

Three basic enclosures are available in the profile lengths 160 mm, 200 mm and 240 mm (covers add 42 mm to overall length), with a width of 170 mm and height of 50 mm. The covers come in lava colour (similar to anthracite) moulded in high-quality ASA+PC-FR plastic, with designer seals made of TPV material in volcano or green.

Their highly versatile design can be used for table-top, sloping front and wall-mounted enclosures. A recessed area in the top allows for the installation and protection of displays, membrane keypads and operating elements; the recessed area measures 14 cm on the diagonal for the Smart-Terminal 160 and 17,8 cm for the Smart-Terminal 200 and 240. Horizontal PCB guides and screw channels are provided inside the enclosure.

The two-part aluminium profile facilitates the assembly of the enclosure and installation of the components, with no visible fixing screws, while flat areas facilitate easy installation of the interfaces and side covers have a recessed area to protect the cables and connectors. Optional accessories include a wall suspension element, case canting kit for an ergonomic reading angle of 12°, and a set of square-head nuts for PCB mounting.
