The wearable enclosure BODY-CASE range by OKW Gehäusesysteme has been extended by a smaller size. In addition, a cradle is also available now to let you put down the enclosure safely or, if necessary, to be able to charge it. Possible applications of the BODY-CASE include mobile data recording and data transmission, measuring and control engineering, digital communications technology, emergency call and notification systems as well as bio-feedback sensors in the fields of health care, medical technology, leisure and sports etc..
The enclosure range is ideal for portable technologies, so-called "wearable technologies": it can be carried around your neck, on your arm or wrist, on articles of clothing or loose in a sewn pocket. The "wearable enclosure" is particularly unobtrusive and does not restrict you in any way, and is like an accessory. The enclosure shells of the BODY-CASE are highly polished and are made of high-quality ASA (UL 94 HB) in the colour traffic white (RAL 9016). The top parts are available from stock, either with or without a recessed surface for decor foils or membrane keyboards. The matt TPV sealing ring is available as standard in the colours vermilion (RAL 2002) as well as lava (similar to anthracite) and allows protection class IP 65. The BODY-CASE range is available in two different sizes with the dimensions (L x W x H) 55 x 46 x 17 mm (L), and the recently released version M with 50 x 41 x 16 mm. Depending on the operating elements and electronics you require, you can choose the right size for your application. On the arm, the smaller version is also conceivable as an attractive alternative for people with a more slender wrist. In this way, the terminal makes neither a bulky nor a distracting impression. There are also various matching accessories such as a wrist strap, a belt / pocket clip or a lanyard. In addition, a station is now also available for both enclosures. This means that the BODY-CASE can be kept safely after use, and an integrated charging option is also conceivable.
For different applications, the enclosure can also be modified according to customer requirements. Processing and finishing techniques by the in-house Service Center are also available, such as mechanical processing for interfaces and printing.
