Video: OKW’s smart new MINI-DATA-BOX for miniaturized go-anywhere electronic devices

11 November 2022

OKW has extended its wide range of sensor enclosures with the launch of tough, elegant new MINI-DATA-BOX. Its different versions, sizes, colors and optional flanges offer 32 possible permutations — all available as standard.

The innovative and compact MINI-DATA-BOX is ideal for applications including internet of things (IoT)/industrial IoT, automation, security and surveillance technology, environmental monitoring, measurement and control, smart logistics, peripherals, interfaces and ICT. Its small size also makes it suitable for wearable electronics.

MINI-DATA-BOX can be specified in two shapes: square and edge (rectangular), either with or withoutSource: OKW EnclosuresSource: OKW Enclosures flanges for screws and cable ties, enabling fast mounting to walls, ceilings, rails and masts.

Each enclosure offers plenty of flat surfaces for interfaces. The lids have distinctive beveled corners — a ‘diamond cut’ design, which reduces weight and further enhances the housings’ stylish, modern aesthetics.

The lid and base feature an all-round tongue-and-groove joint for added strength. They are assembled with tamperproof Torx screws, a key requirement for medical electronics. IP 65 ingress protection is optional. Inside, there are fixing supports for PCBs and components in both the top and bottom sections. Alternatively, potting of electronic assemblies is possible.

MINI-DATA-BOX can be specified in plan sizes 1.57 inches x 1.57 inches, 1.96 inches x 1.96 inches, 1.57 inches x 2.36 inches and 1.96 inches x 2.76 inches — all of which are available in two heights (0.59 inches and 0.78 inches). The enclosures are molded from UV-stable and flame-resistant ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0) in a choice of two standard colors, traffic white (RAL 9016) and anthracite gray (RAL 7016). Custom colors are available on request.

Accessories include seals for IP 65 ingress protection and non-slip feet for desktop use.

OKW can supply MINI-DATA-BOX fully customized. Services include CNC machining, RFI/EMI shielding, lacquering, laser marking, printing of legends and logos, and installation/assembly of accessories.
