Advanced enclosures designed for body-wearing

15 June 2005 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

OKW's Ergo-Cases are, as the name suggests, ergonomic cases ideal for housing medical equipment, mobile data recording units, test and measurement devices and much more. These enclosures are unique in being designed from the outset to be carried on the body.

For example, they can be strapped on the user's arm or around their waist using the optional eyelet and arm/belt strap accessories. The cases are also ideal for housing handheld electronics.

The size L has external dimensions of 150 x 200 mm in heights of 369 or 54 mm. The size M has external dimensions of 150 x 100 mm in heights of 55 or 40 mm. The new size S has external dimensions of 80 x 96 mm in heights of 32 or 44 mm.

The top part has a recess for mounting a membrane keypad, and the bottom part includes a battery compartment for two 1,5 V AAA cells. Internal screw pillars are provided for mounting PCBs. Other accessories include an IP54 sealing kit - for outdoor use - wall suspension kits, and battery contacts.

Ergo-Cases are manufactured in off-white or black ABS (UL94HB), with special colours and EMC-shielded aluminised versions available on request.
