Why Standard/Customisable Plastic Enclosures

Measuring, control and automation have always been key applications for OKW enclosures. Electronics designers need a wide selection of standard enclosures that can be customised quickly and easily to meet a plethora of challenges.

These enclosures must be able to protect extremely sensitive electronics in demanding industrial environments and in the hot, cold, wet and windswept outdoors. They must be tough enough to take the hard knocks but still remain comfortable to use and aesthetically pleasing – enhancing the electronics they house.

Applications include:

  • mobile data recording and transmission
  • voltage detectors and digital thermometers in measuring and control engineering
  • data logging for temperature, humidity, voltage, pressure and CO2
  • electronic and electro-technical control units in outdoor facilities – either stationary or mobile
  • sensor technology and opto-electronics such as control and alarm equipment
  • Smart Factory, Industry 4.0
  • system modules in automation technology.

Such diverse challenges require a huge range of enclosures – enabling you to find a standard housing to suit your requirements with very little customisation needed. And today’s standard enclosures don’t look or feel generic. They give you the best of both worlds: they’re highly specialised – and yet incredibly versatile. (The NET-BOX example featured later in this blog post is a prime example.)

You don’t need to opt for a fully bespoke housing. Specify a proven off-the-shelf model instead…then make it look unique with just a little customisation. All of which can be done by OKW as a single-source supplier. Get high-performance enclosures quickly, easily and within your budget – even in the low volumes traditionally associated with highly specialist electronics.

See examples of OKW customised enclosures for measuring, control and automation. You’ll see 20 different examples of handheld, wall-mount and desktop enclosures – all fully customised and branded to house finished products. Devices include meters, controllers, scanners, testers, loggers and measuring stations.


Handheld And Portable Enclosures For Measuring, Control And Automation

On the one hand (no pun intended), there’s CARRYTEC, OKW’s largest attaché-case-style enclosures. And on the other, there’s MINITEC – an award-winning enclosure that’s so small you can wear it around your neck or clip it on a key ring. And then there’s everything else in between. Here are four examples from OKW’s 19-strong range of handheld enclosures. They’re perfect for measuring, control and automation…
