Canting kit adds a new angle for extruded enclosures

Enclosures manufacturer OKW launches a case canting kit to optimise the Smart-Terminal extruded enclosures for desktop use.

Smart-Terminal is designed for peripheral and interface equipment, communications, safety engineering, biometrics, medical and laboratory technology, healthcare, measurement and control engineering.

The case canting kit inclines Smatr-Terminal by 12 degree to create an ergonomic reading and operating angle. No extra screws are needed to fit the kit, as the lava grey canting mouldings are held in place by the side covers. Four non-slip rubber feet are also included.

Smart-Terminal’s aluminium case body has a large recessed area on top for displays, membrane keypads and operating elements. PCBs slide in to guide rails in the case body or can be fitted to the base.

The cases are available with flat anodised end panels or moulded covers in UV stable lava grey ASA+PC-FR with deep recesses to protect cables and connectors. These covers sit inside soft-touch TPV grey or green seals. All the case parts are assembled with security Torx screws.

Smart-Terminal is available in one width (170mm) and height (50mm) and three standard lengths: 202, 242 and 282mm. Custom lengths are available on request.   

OKW can supply the cases fully customised on request. Customisation services include custom colours (minimum quantity 200 for the TPV seals), CNC machining, lacquering, screen, tampo or digital printing of legends and logos, installation and assembly of electronic components.
