OKW: Smart-Box IP-Rated Plastic Enclosures Now in Eight Sizes

July 13, 2022

OKW’s SMART-BOX IP-rated enclosures for industrial electronics are now available in eight sizes and with a wide range of customization options.

Advanced SMART-BOX is ideal for wall-mount and desktop devices. Applications include HVAC, control and system engineering, safety technology, IoT/IIoT, Smart Factory, Industry 4.0 and gateways.

These contoured, ergonomic enclosures feature separate channels for the lid screws and mounting screws so they can be installed ‘lid closed’ – protecting the electronics and the pre-fitted sealing gasket. Hinged flush-fitting trims conceal all the screws, which are A2 stainless steel with high corrosion resistance.

The lid features a generous recess for a membrane keypad or product label. Two plastic lid-retaining straps safeguard the opened lid for installation and maintenance in challenging locations. Inside the lid and main body, there are internal fastening pillars for PCBs and DIN rails.

SMART-BOX is molded from ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0) for added UV stability. Its eight sizes range from 4.72″ x 3.54″ x 1.96″ to 11.02″ x 6.69″ x 2.36″. Seven of the eight sizes (widths 3.54″, 4.33″, 5.11″, 5.90″) are rated IP 66; the eighth (width 6.69″) is IP 65.

Accessories for SMART-BOX include pressure equalization elements, cable grommets, security plugs, TPE non-slip case feet for desktop use, and self-tapping screws (including tamperproof Torx T10).

SMART-BOX can be specified fully customized. Services include CNC machining, printing or laser marking of legends and logos, decor foils, RFI/EMI shielding, installation and assembly of accessories.
