Camden Electronics DIN Rail Enclosures Go Worldwide With OKW Distribution Deal
(PRWEB) January 27, 2005
Camden Electronics’ extensive range of DIN rail enclosures is now available worldwide through a distribution agreement with German company OKW.
Camden’s DIN rail enclosures range is being marketed by OKW under the Railtec brand. OKW, one of the world’s largest producers and suppliers of enclosures with offices and distributors across the globe, has exclusive selling rights in Russia, Japan, Korea, Switzerland and France.
Commenting on the agreement, Christoph Schneider, OKW’s managing director, said, “We are very pleased to be able to offer our customers Camden’s extensive range of DIN rail enclosures which complements our existing range of housings. We decided to add these exceptionally versatile enclosures to our line as they bring a number of unique features to the market and offer superior quality compared with alternative brands.”
Andy Hatter, Camden’s managing director, commented, “We are delighted to add OKW to our worldwide distribution network. Everybody wins with this agreement: customers benefit from OKW’s extensive global support network that offers local back up; Camden gains a sales partner with unrivalled international experience in the enclosure market that will significantly increase the worldwide presence of our DIN rail offering; and OKW gains a strong product line offering high quality and unique features.”
Camden’s UK-manufactured snap-fit DIN rail enclosures sport a wide variety of features allowing users to produce housings to meet almost any conceivable requirement. Unlike competitive products, these patented DIN rail mounting enclosures are UL94V0 flame retardant as they are moulded in polycarbonate instead of Noryl and other lower grade materials. Seven versions are available offering lengths of 17.5, 36, 53, 71, 89, 106 and 160mm all 90mm wide.
The range has recently been enhanced with the addition of a new extended height module and curved cover options.
The new extension module adds 15mm to the height of the original enclosure and enables two additional PCBs to be mounted horizontally. It simply snap fits to the top of existing enclosures enabling additional space to accommodate larger components and sub-assemblies where necessary. Like the original enclosures, the new extension module is moulded from Lexan polycarbonate to ensure the finished moulding meets UL94V0 flame retardancy ratings.
The new curved covers are designed to provide improved aesthetic appeal for the enclosures and offer an enhanced look that allows customers to deliver their systems in housings that appear to be custom designed rather than a standard box from any supplier. They are available in solid grey, clear, red transparent and smoky grey transparent. The design allows the hinged lid to be locked in the opened position so adjustments can be made to circuits within the enclosure without having to hold the cover.
Like their flat counterparts, the new curved covers can be supplied with or without a small hole that enables units to be sealed with wire, preventing unauthorised tampering with circuitry.
