BODY-CASE – Small enclosure with flair

The new BODY-CASE is the first wearable enclosure by OKW Gehäusesysteme and is ideal for applications on or near the body. Thanks to its small, compact format, it is perfect for wearing on the body: on your arm, around your neck, in shirt and trouser pockets or carried loose in an article of clothing. The enclosure fulfils its function in the simplest way, without restricting the user in his or her activities and without being conspicuous.

The body case has a three-part design consisting of a top and a bottom part and a matt TPE sealing ring. The enclosures are made of ASA material in the colour traffic white (RAL 9016) and have a modern appearance thanks to highly polished surfaces. The top parts are available from stock, either with or without a recessed surface for decor foils or membrane keyboards. The sealing ring is available in the colours vermilion (RAL 2002) as well as lava (similar to anthracite) and allows protection classes IP65 and IP67. The dimensions of the enclosure are 54 x 45 x 17.5 mm (L x W x D). Internal power can be supplied with round or button cells which are mounted directly on the PCB. Alternatively, It is possible to charge the device inductively after the installation of a rechargeable battery with copper loop.

The BODY-CASE can be worn comfortably on the arm with the help of optional accessories, for example a black silicone wrist strap or a hand strap. A fastening kit, consisting of belt / pocket clip, fastening eyelet, e.g. for a lanyard, and two covers for closing the rear wrist strap attachment, is also available. The enclosure can also be worn loose in an article of clothing. Possible applications include mobile data recording and data transmission, measuring and control engineering, digital communications technology, emergency call and notification systems as well as bio-feedback sensors in the fields of health care, medical technology, leisure and sports etc.

The enclosure can also be modified further for different applications. Processing and finishing techniques by the in-house service centre are also available, such as mechanical processing, printing, EMC coating and much more.
