New Options For OKW's Award-Winning MINITEC Handheld Enclosures
OKW has extended its award-winning MINITEC range of plastic handheld enclosures by adding a USB Type A intermediate ring and a belt strap eyelet.
MINITEC – which recently won an iF Product Design Award – is a modern range of ergonomic enclosures for remote control key fobs and other personal electronics. Applications include compact measurement devices, data recording, emergency systems, monitoring and alarm equipment – notably in the medical and social fields.
Cases can be worn on lanyards, hand and wrist straps or attached to a belt or key ring. They are available in two shapes: rectangular EDGE (E) or the more rounded DROP (D).
OKW’s new USB Type A intermediate ring has been designed for medium-sized MINITEC EDGE (EM) enclosures while the belt strap eyelet fits large EDGE (EL) cases.
The new USB Type A ring is molded from soft touch volcano (light gray) SEBS (TPE). It is supplied with one self-tapping screw for easy assembly.
The belt strap eyelet is molded from lava (dark gray) ABS (UL 94 HB) and can accommodate a belt or strap up to 1.378” high and 0.157” thick, either lengthwise or crosswise. It is supplied with two self-tapping screws.
MINITEC’s modular design offers users a huge range of shape, size and color permutations. Each enclosure comprises a top and bottom section, separated by an intermediate ring.
Features include a recess to protect a membrane keypad or product label. EDGE also offers a smooth top for push buttons.
Both types of MINITEC are available in three plan sizes (with EDGE offering a choice of thicknesses for the intermediate rings): EDGE ES 2.05” x 1.26” x 0.59”, EM 2.68” x 1.65” x 0.71”/0.95”, EL 3.07” x 1.89” x 0.79”/0.95”/1.02”; DROP DS 2.01” x 1.26” x 0.51”, DM 2.76” x 1.73” x 0.63”, DL 3.31” x 2.09” x 0.75”.
Top and bottom sections are molded predominantly from ABS (UL 94 HB) but infrared-permeable PMMA Plexiglas is available for remote control applications. Intermediate rings can be specified in ABS or soft touch SEBS (TPE) which also offers added protection from impact.
Prices for MINITEC start at $6. Accessories include a key ring, lanyard, wrist strap, hand strap and carrying strap.
OKW also offers customizing services including CNC milling and drilling, printing (digital, water transfer, screen, tampo), engraving of legends and logos, special materials (such as bioplastic), custom colors, special finishes, keypads and assembly.
