OKW's popular COMTEC range of sloping front keypad enclosures is now available in seven standard sizes. These modern housings feature an attractive 'softline' design with an ergonomically inclined (10°) operating area, which guarantees comfortable operation of the controls.
Typical applications will include telecoms equipment, intercoms, surveillance devices, data collection, point-of-sale terminals and a broad range of instrumentation.
The COMTEC enclosures are molded in fine textured ABS (UL 94 HB). Two standard colors are offered: off-white, RAL 9002 or black, RAL 9005. Custom colors and materials also available on request.
Each enclosure consists of a top and base molding, and optionally, a clip-on battery compartment lid. Assembly is by an interlocking system at the front and by two screws at the rear. This also allows easier access if the cases are mounted on a wall.
The range now includes seven standard sizes with external dimensions from 4.72" x 5.90" x 1.69" to 11.41" x 7.87" x 3.11". Four sizes are available with a battery compartment aperture in the base section which is designed for mounting an accessory battery cradle. Three types of battery cradle are offered: one 9V cell, two 9V cells or four 1.5V AA cells.
All models have a recessed area on the top for mounting membrane keypads or product labels. Screw pillars are molded inside the top and base for mounting PCBs, displays and assemblies. Prices start at $22.
Customizing options for COMTEC enclosures include CNC milling and drilling, silk-screen and tampo printing of legends and logos, RFI/EMI shielding and assembly of components.
