With the new SMART-TERMINAL enclosure range, OKW Gehäusesysteme offers an elegant, flexible and robust aluminium profile enclosure in its standard product programme. A uniform profile cross-section with variable length design as well as matching accessories allow a flexible variety of applications as a table-top or wall-mounted version.
The new SMART-TERMINAL range of enclosures consists of a C-shaped top profile made of anodised, glass bead-blasted aluminium. It includes a recessed area for membrane keypads/decor foils and flat interface surfaces on the sides. There is sufficient space here for operating elements, switches or displays. The flat base profile is also made of aluminium and closes the enclosure from below with 6 screws. On the open profile sides, the SMART-TERMINALs are closed with covers made of high-quality ASA+PC-FR material in the colour lava. For the plastic parts there are separate moulded seals in the colours volcano or green (RAL 6016). Interfaces such as plugs and connections are also possible through the covers. The complete enclosures are available with profiles in the dimensions 170 x 50 mm (width x height) and in the profile lengths of 160 mm, 200 mm and 240 mm. With the covers, the overall length of each size increases by 42 mm. The versions were designed to fit standard display and touch solutions from 4.3" up to a maximum of 8". The length 200 mm is ideal for a 7" touch solution, as there is a border here of approx. 15 mm around the recess for gluing. The inside of the enclosure has several mounting options on two assembly levels. The displays and PCBs can thus be optionally mounted face up or face down. To ensure optimum operation, an enclosure canting kit for a 12° angle of inclination is available in the range of accessories. It contains two plastic brackets and is simply pushed into the existing groove in the base profile. Non-slip enclosure feet ensure reliable desk-top use. Alternatively, it can also be mounted flat on a wall using a wall suspension element. In addition to the covers made of plastic, aluminium panels are available to close the sides of the enclosures. The panel is mounted on the body of the enclosure using four screws. In this version, the three profile lengths are each increased by 4 mm.
The SMART-TERMINAL enclosures can be further modified by OKWs own Service Center. The options include, among others, mechanical machining for interfaces, a customer-specific profile length, individual lettering and printing, or the manufacture and installation of digital printing foils. The areas of application include machine and plant engineering, safety engineering, building services engineering, measurement and control technology, environmental technology, agricultural vehicle technology, construction machines and embedded systems.
