OKW Completes its ERGO-CASE Wearable Enclosures Range

OKW has completed its range of advanced ERGO-CASE wearable enclosures with six new smaller XS models, giving designers a choice of 42 individual housings.

The new extra small cases are ideal for compact handheld electronic devices and have an ergonomically contoured design which is very comfortable to hold or wear.

Typical applications for ERGO-CASE include personal electronics such as medical and wellness equipment, security devices, building access and dosage detectors.

The new ERGO-CASE XS consists of a top, base and intermediate ring. They are assembled with two self-tapping screws.

They can be specified with no eyelets (Type I), one eyelet for a lanyard (Type II) or two lateral eyelets (Type III) for fitting the device to a wrist strap or belt.

The extended range now includes four plan sizes: XS, S, M and L in flat and high models with external dimensions from 3.23" x 2.20" x 0.94" to 5.91" x 7.87" x 2.72".

The XS and S models are designed for wearing on straps or lanyards. The M and L models can be fitted to arm and belt straps or wall mounted using the accessory eyelets and wall mounting elements. L models are also available with a clear display window.

All models feature a recessed area in the top for mounting a membrane keypad or product label. Screw pillars in the top section and location pillars in the base section are provided for fitting PCBs and battery assemblies.

ERGO-CASE enclosures are molded in ABS (UL 94 HB) in Off-white or Black. The new XS size features an intermediate ring in gray soft-touch TPE elastomer.

Prices for the ERGO-CASE range start at $16.
