New DATEC-COMPACT handheld enclosures are IP65 (NEMA 4) and UV-stable

OKW has launched DATEC-COMPACT, a brand new range of UV-stable IP65 (NEMA 4) handheld enclosures for outdoor electronics.

These modern and ergonomic cases are the first from OKW to feature integrated contacts as an option – providing an all-in solution for charging and data transfer.

All units in the range – enclosures, desk stations and wall holders – can be specified with built-in contacts. Options for the cases also include a 3 x 1.5 V AA battery compartment.

DATEC-COMPACT is aimed at applications including mobile data recording and transfer, measuring and control, stock and sales logging plus digital control technology.

The range is manufactured from an ASA+PC-FR blend (UL 94 V-0) for added strength and UV stability. Cases are assembled with tamperproof Torx T10 screws.

They are currently available in one size (6.771" x 3.622" x 1.535"). The top section features a large recess to accommodate a membrane keypad or product label.

Accessories include a battery contact kit, male contacts (for the desk station), female contacts (for the case), non-slip feet, PCB screws and a Torx T10 screwdriver.

All units in the range can be specified in two standard colours: Off-white (RAL 9002) and Lava Gray. Custom colors are available.

Customization options also include CNC milling and drilling, RFI shielding, silk-screen and tampo printing of legends and logos plus assembly of components.
