NEW ENCLOSURES COMBINE PLASTIC & ALUMINIUM IN PERFECT SYNERGY

Synergy extruded enclosures

Blog - September 2014

Extruded enclosures in four modern designs

Every new range we launch is exciting – but few more so than SYNERGY, OKW’s first enclosures to combine aluminium and plastic. With ultra-high quality finishing, SYNERGY exemplifies our ethos of creating electronic housings that are elegant and yet understated.

It won’t surprise you to know that we’ve gone to significant lengths to ensure this 36-strong range of desktop, wall mount and handheld cases offers superlative finishing.

Each case body is extruded from AIMgSi 0.5 aluminium then blasted with glass beads and anodised in silver (or black on request). To ensure the finish is perfect, we’ve teamed up with an anodising specialist that works for German manufacturers of high end TV and home entertainment.

But the aluminium case body is only half the story – next we come to the plastic top and base. Once again, we’ve added a few twists to ensure that quality is uppermost. Both the top and base sections are manufactured from ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0) for UV resistance. Specify them in black (RAL 9005) as standard or choose from a wide range of custom colours.

They are held in place by our new fast-connect system which is based around four internal assembly pillars manufactured from glass reinforced polyamide. The pillars snap in to the recessed top panel, locate the assembly extrusion and are fixed to the bottom part with four stainless steel Torx T10 anti-tamper screws. Several pillars can be snapped together to create custom heights in 5 mm increments (on request).

PCBs can be mounted in the top and bottom. Cables of up to ø 3 mm can be routed out of the bottom part. The end result is a range that exudes quality – ready to house the very latest medical and therapeutic systems, measurement and control technology, home automation, peripherals, building services electronics plus many more applications.

Options and accessories include: battery compartments for three or four 1.5V AA cells; an extender kit for the PCB pillars; a suspension kit that enables SYNERGY to be wall mounted with only one screw.

Synergy can be ordered right now in Square and Edge (rectangular) shapes. Round and Oval models are soon to follow.

  • Square models are offered in three plan sizes: 100 mm x 100 mm; 120 mm x 120 mm; 140 mm x 140 mm, all in heights of 40, 70 or 100 mm.
  • Edge (rectangular) models are also available in three plan sizes: 160 mm x 80 mm; 180 mm x 90; 200 mm x 100 mm, all in 40, 70 or 100 mm.
