Mountable stations for wearable enclosures enable multiple units to be charged at once
Body-Case is OKW’s first enclosure designed to fit a standard 18 watchstrap. Applications include data recording and transmission, tracking and monitoring, emergency call and notification, bio-feedback sensors for healthcare, wellness and sports fitness. It can also be used for industrial electronics.
The new mountable stations can be grouped on any flat surface to enable induction charging in series. They are similar to Body-Case’s existing stations but feature an open base. An IP 54 seal is available to help protect against dust or water ingress.
Stations with either open or closed base are available for both sizes of Body-Case. The stations are moulded in UV-stable ASA (UL 94 HB). The standard colour is traffic white (RAL 9016) and prices start at £5.
Other accessories include a fastening kit which enables the enclosures to be clipped to a belt or pocket, an 18mm wrist strap, spring bar tool, woven hand strap and lanyard.
Customising options for Body-Case and the stations include custom colours, lacquering, special materials (V-0), CNC machining, printing (screen, tampo and digital) of legends and logos and assembly of accessories.
