Body-worn enclosures

13 June 2018 Enclosures, Racks, Cabinets & Panel Products

The wearable enclosure Body-Case range by OKW has been extended by a smaller size. In addition, a cradle is also available now to hold the enclosure safely or, if necessary, to be able to charge the system housed within. Possible applications include mobile data recording and data transmission, measuring and control engineering, digital communications technology, emergency call and notification systems as well as bio-feedback sensors in the fields of healthcare, medical technology, leisure and sports etc.

The enclosure range is ideal for wearable technologies, as it can be carried around the neck, on the arm or wrist, on articles of clothing or loose in a sewn pocket. It is particularly unobtrusive and does not restrict movement in any way, similar to an accessory.

The enclosure shells of the Body-Case are highly polished and are made of high-quality ASA (UL 94 HB) in the colour traffic white (RAL 9016). The top parts are available from stock, either with or without a recessed surface for decor foils or membrane keyboards. The matt TPV sealing ring is available as standard in the colours vermilion (RAL 2002) as well as lava (similar to anthracite) and allows protection class IP65.

The Body-Case range is available in two different sizes with the dimensions (L x W x H) 55 x 46 x 17 mm (L), and the recently released version M measuring 50 x 41 x 16 mm. There are also various matching accessories such as a wrist strap, a belt / pocket clip or a lanyard.

For different applications, the enclosure can also be modified according to customer requirements. Processing and finishing techniques by OKW’s in-house service centre are also available, such as mechanical processing for interfaces and printing.
