OKW’s Minitec enclosures for handheld and wearable electronics

Minitec one of many OKW models is ideal for emergency systems, monitoring and alarms, wireless remote control, mobile USB applications and IoT/IIoT.

They comprise two shells separated by a choice of intermediate rings. These rings enable Minitec to be fitted to belts, wrist straps, lanyards, key rings or carried loose. Some rings feature slots for USB Type A or micro USB 5 P, B Type SMT connectors.

Minitec’s two different shapes (rounded D ‘Drop’ and rectangular E ‘Edge’), three sizes, and dozens of coloured intermediate rings create a large array of standard permutations – reducing the need for customisation.

All Drop enclosures feature a recessed top for a membrane keypad or product label. Edge housings can be specified with or without this recess.

Minitec is available in sizes S, M and L from 51 x 32 x 13 mm to 78 x 48 x 20/24/26 mm. The top and bottom shells are moulded from off-white (RAL 9002) or lava grey ABS (UL 94 HB). Black (RAL 9005) infrared-permeable PMMA (UL 94 HB) is also available for remote control applications.

The intermediate rings are either soft-touch TPE/SEBS, ABS or PMMA. Standard colours include orange, green, blue, black, off-white, lava grey and volcano grey.

Accessories include carrying and wrist straps, a strap eyelet (size EL), lanyard, key ring and a USB end cover.

OKW can supply Minitec fully customised. Services include machining, lacquering, printing, laser marking, decor foils, special materials, EMC shielding and installation/assembly of accessories.
