Wall-mount enclosures smarten up smart buildings
The Smart-Panel wall mount enclosures from OKW are designed to blend seamlessly into residential, commercial and industrial environments. They are for use with intelligent building control and monitoring technology.
The ergonomic Smart-Panel enclosure range is designed to house modern control consoles in a wide range of settings, including building services systems, electrical installations, smart home, IoT/industrial IoT, wireless communications, measuring and control, medical and laboratory technology, security and access control.
The elegant design means that there are no visible fixing screws because the top snaps into place. This also speeds up installation and servicing, says OKW. The top can be re-opened using a set of push-in opening tools. The large recess in the top can accommodate a touchscreen, display or membrane keypad.
The bottom part fits standard flush-mounted or cavity wall boxes, with a maximum opening of 61mm and larger international installation boxes up to 150mm high and 61mm wide.
Electronic components are mounted in the top part. A snap-in phenolic resin hardboard protection plate, available as an accessory, safeguards the electronics in the control system from the risk of damage during installation and servicing.
Smart-Panel enclosures are available in two sizes: 84 x 84 x 21.3mm and 155 x 84 x 21.3mm. They are moulded from UV-stable ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0) with a highly polished bottom part and a fine-textured top. The standard colour is traffic white (RAL 9016). There is a flat, recessed area in one end for USB and Mini-USB connectors.
Accessories include a glass panel (which can be printed on the rear) for touchscreens and displays, a set of opening tools, hardboard protection plates, adhesive foils and anti-slide feet for desktop use.
OKW can supply Smart-Panel enclosures fully customised. Services include CNC machining, printing, laser marking, EMC shielding and installation/assembly of accessories.
