OKW have introduced the 'COMTEC' range of sloping front keypad enclosures. These modern enclosures feature an attractive 'softline' design with an ergonomically inclined (10ļ) 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.
'COMTEC' enclosures are molded in off-white or black ABS (UL 94 HB), with custom colors and materials available on request. Each case consists of a top and base molding, and optionally, a battery compartment lid. Assembly is by an interlocking system at the front and by two screws at the rear, which also allows easier access if the cases are mounted on a wall.
A useful range of seven standard sizes is offered with external dimensions from 4.72" x 5.90" x 1.68" to 11.41" x 7.87" x 2.97". 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. A clip-on battery compartment lid is also provided.
The top panel is recessed for mounting membrane keypads or product labels. Screw pillars are molded inside the cases for mounting PCBs and assemblies. Prices start at $20.
OKW can supply the 'COMTEC' enclosures with additional holes for the keypads, connectors and displays etc., plus silk-screen printed legends and logos, and EMI/RFI shielding.
