Medical and home automation enclosures snap into action

Three sizes of Snaptec fast assembly enclosures are now available from OKW, following the company’s announcement of a new, larger size.

The Snaptec fast assembly IP 65 plastic enclosures are designed for medical or home automation systems and small devices with low voltage electro-technical components (potentiometers, time controllers, coded control units) or electro-mechanical components (relays, fuses).

The cost-efficient, sealed enclosures feature snap-on lids for easy assembly. The lid can be removed for disassembly or servicing using either the nylon opening tool or a screwdriver. The tool is included, along with cover plugs for the access holes.

IP65 sealing gasket is pre-fitted in the lid – speeding up installation – and there is a recess to accommodate a membrane keypad or label.

The bottom section has high walls, offering plenty of space for fitting cable glands and interfaces, says the company. Hidden screw shafts facilitate wall mounting, while alternative external wall mounting brackets are also available as an accessory.

The enclosure is moulded in light grey (RAL 7035) ABS (UL 94 HB) as standard. It can be customised with bespoke colours, flame-retardant V-0, EMC shielding, CNC machining, lacquering, printing of logos and legends, adhesive foils, display windows, membrane keypads, plastic and aluminium panels, installation and assembly.

The new size is the largest in the range at 100 x 100 x 80mm; the other two sizes are 60 x 60 x 40mm and 60 x 100 x 40mm.
