CONNECT - The optimum connection

With the new CONNECT, OKW Gehäusesysteme presents a versatile and compact plastic enclosure for wired applications. It consists of two enclosure shells which are easily and reliably joined together by means of a concealed locking edge. The two end sides are designed in such a way that either they are closed or they can be fitted with cable glands. The possible applications include security and building services systems, computer peripherals and network technology, data transfer, measuring and control engineering as well as medical technology.

On account of their functions, the CONNECT enclosure shells have different shapes: the one is convex, the other somewhat flattened with a recessed panel for accommodating operating units. They have identical recesses at both ends for end elements. To connect the two shells, they are simply snapped into each other, which means time savings during assembly. The absence of screws enhances its appearance, on the one hand, and on the other hand the front face of the enclosure can be freely selected. Cable glands and/or end parts are optionally available to complete the enclosure shells. It is for example possible to suspend the enclosure by using an end part on the one side and a cable gland on the other. Two cable bushings are also possible if the enclosure is to be used as an interface between several devices. The cable gland kit contains an integrated strain relief device, that is, the cables are clamped within the gland. A holding clamp which has a concealed attachment to the enclosure is available for hanging the enclosure on pipes and on common round profiles. The flattened enclosure shell has four attachment domes for mounting PCBs and built-in components.

Robust, UV stabilised plastic material ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0) in the colour off-white (RAL 9002) is used to manufacture the enclosure. They offer protection class IP 40 and are available in 3 sizes (L x W x H): 76 x 54 x 22 mm, 116 x 54 x 22 mm and 156 x 54 x 22 mm.

For optimum modification of the CONNECT for different applications, processing and finishing techniques are available such as mechanical processing (e.g. for additional cutouts on the long sides), printing, lacquering or EMC coating by the in-house service centre.
