OKW Enclosures, Inc. has introduced its elegant new Smart-Panel wall-mount enclosures, optimized for intelligent building control and monitoring technology applications.

The attractive and ergonomic Smart-Panel is designed to house modern control consoles in a wide range of residential, commercial and industrial sites. These include building services systems, electrical installations, smart homes, IoT/IIoT, wireless communications, measuring and control, medical and laboratory technology, security and access control. 

According to the manufacturer, with the Smart-Panel enclosure, there are no visible fixing screws because the top snaps into place – speeding up installation and servicing. 

The top can be re-opened using a set of push-in opening tools (accessory). The large recess in the top can accommodate a touchscreen, display or membrane keypad. The bottom part fits standard flush-mounted/cavity wall boxes (maximum opening 61 mm) and larger international installation boxes (up to 5.90” high and 2.40” wide). 

Electronic components are mounted in the top part. A snap-in phenolic resin hardboard protection plate (accessory) safeguards the underlying electronics from the risk of damage during installation and servicing. 

The Smart-Panel is available in two sizes: 3.30” x 3.30” x 0.83” and 6.10” x 3.30” x 0.83”. Both versions are molded from UV-stable ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0) with a highly polished bottom part and a fine-textured top. The standard color is traffic white (RAL 9016). There is a flat, recessed area in one end for USB and Mini-USB connectors etc. Prices start at $19. 

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 the Smart-Panel fully customized. Services include CNC machining, printing, laser marking, RFI/EMI shielding and installation/assembly of accessories.
