IN-BOX enclosure in PC with transparent top part

The IN-BOX enclosure range made of UV-stabilised polycarbonate has been extended by 16 versions with transparent top parts (84 x 82 x 55 - 302 x 232 x 110 mm).
The transparent top part of the enclosure offers the advantage that display elements integrated directly on the PCB, e.g. LEDs for system status displays, devices and the like are visible from the outside. This saves additional assembly and material costs for the routing and wiring of components as well as the subsequent machining of the top part of the enclosure. In addition, the protection class remains unaffected.

OKW granted the status of a KRITIS company

Since the onset of the COVID-19 lung disease, OKW Gehäusesysteme has been producing more high-quality enclosures for medical applications than ever before, as well as tuning knobs, which are essential for the operation and control of respirators, for example. As a result, OKW has now been confirmed as a systemically relevant KRITIS company. This means that, according to the criteria of the state of Baden-Württemberg, OKW is "indispensable" for the supply chain in medical research and development.

OKW hopes that its status as a KRITIS company will give it easier access to materials and transportation capacity. However, this can also give employees directly involved in the supply chain access to emergency care for their children, despite the closure of kindergartens and schools.

OKW at the embedded world trade fair 2020

Last week (25.02 to 27.02.2020), OKW Gehäusesysteme showed its products at the embedded world trade fair in Nuremberg. As the name suggests, the event focuses on all technologies related to embedded systems: the security of electronic systems, distributed intelligence, the Internet of Things, e-mobility and energy efficiency. The high-quality plastic and aluminium enclosures by OKW are ideally suited to these fields of application and attracted lively interest from the visitors to the trade fair. 200 companies had cancelled their participation at short notice due to the spread of the corona virus, and so the number of visitors, at 13,800, was significantly lower than in previous years. However, OKW was able to confirm the encouraging results from previous years.

SMART-CONTROL - for easy installation in standard room corners

For precise use, devices used for the large-area monitoring of security areas or public spaces should be placed as high up on the ceiling as possible. Various sensors can also be used there for easy communication. The devices are often mounted on walls, the corners remain empty.

OKW Gehäusesysteme has designed a suitable solution for these unused areas – SMART-CONTROL. The devices do not interfere, they are ideally protected from damage, are space-saving and make optimum use of the usually empty room corners.
