Ergonomically-shaped cases

20 November 2002 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

OKW's ERGO-CASE series has now been supplemented by a larger version. These series of cases can either be used as 'bodycases' for carrying on the body, or universally as handheld, desktop or wall-mounted cases. The ERGO-CASES are suited for visually demanding fields of application in mobile data acquisition and transmission in the fields of medical, laboratory and measuring technology, in storage and sales logistics as well as in various fields of digital open and closed loop control.

The new ERGO-CASE L was designed as a three-part system, consisting of top and bottom parts as well as a snap-in battery compartment lid. The individual parts are connected to each other using four self-tapping screws on the underside of the case. The screw devices have been recessed; the four case feet can subsequently be attached here using adhesive. The rounded operating panel in the upper part represents the area for the input, read-off and control of the terminal units. This surface is recessed by 1 mm and offers protection for keyboards.

The external dimensions are 150 x 200 x 54 mm. If more volume is required, 15 mm higher versions can be ordered. Standard colours are off-white (RAL 9002) and black (RAL 9005). When sealing kit is used, the ERGO-CASE complies with IP 54 protective class. For battery operation, 3 add-on battery compartments are available: for 4 x 1,5 V AA batteries as well as for one or two 9 V flat batteries (PP3). A strap eyelet attachment is optionally available.
