OKW launched the new ‘WALLTEC’ Series of wall mount enclosures which replace the previous ‘TYPE S’ series. The enclosures have a more modern and robust design, and being rated to IP 65 (NEMA 4), offer a much higher protection class. Typical applications enclosures will include controller units for heating, air conditioning and lighting, flow meters, process controls, timers, monitoring equipment and security systems. Two standard types are available: Type I has an open front section for fitting an aluminum front panel or a recessed cover, and is molded ABS (UL 94 HB) for regular applications. Type II is fitted with a transparent hinged front cover with quick-action lock, and is molded in polycarbonate (UL 94 5V) - this high flame class rating is appropriate for industrial applications. ‘WALLTEC’ enclosures are available in six basic sizes with external dimensions from 6.53” x 6.29” x 3.15” to 15.07” x 12.44” x 5.27”. All models have a separate terminal compartment with removable lid for independent access to the cables and terminals during installation and servicing. The main internal area has guide grooves and screw bosses for fitting PCBs, mounting plates and assemblies.
