Ergonomically inclined
COMTEC 290 - Ergonomically inclined. (PresseBox) (Buchen, ) The dialogue between man and machine is always carried out by means of operating fields that are equipped with the appropriate input and display elements. These control panels thus embody the actual interface to the device, whether for manual operation or for reading off the relevant data. For this reason it is highly important that the devices should have an ergonomically inclined design allowing them to be operated easily and without fatigue. And this was the starting point for the COMTEC desktop/wall-mounted range of cases by OKW Gehäusesysteme GmbH in Buchen, which has now been enhanced by the innovative 290 H version.

The COMTEC series of cases has a favourable angle of inclination of 10° for the dialogue area. This angle is generally considered to be "ideal". This makes desktop units easier to operate, and applications on the wall – then rotated by 180° – can be mounted lower than usual. The inclined dialogue surface is recessed by 1.2 mm as standard, for the installation and protection of display and control elements as well as of membrane keyboards. The relevant upper part of the case and a rear flange form a unit with an angle of 90°. This makes it possible to prepare electronics with input elements and displays, together with fixed interfaces, as an all-in package. Assembly in the top part can thus be effected rationally and without any additional cable connections.

The COMTEC 290 was designed as a two-part system in the standard colours off-white (RAL 9002) and black (RAL 9005), consisting of an upper and a lower part. To mount the cases, the two individual parts interlock at the front, and the parts are secured on the rear surface using only 2 screws. The mounting elements are thus completely located outside the field of view, but they are always accessible - even with wall-mounted applications. The basic dimensions are 290 x 200 x 44/75.5 mm (W x D x H). A high-quality ABS material (UL 94 HB) is used as the standard material.
