Industrial Keyboards & Pointing Devices
Why would you need industrial keyboards?
Industrial environments are tough on equipment and increase the risk of product failures. Water, oil and chemicals would easily destroy a regular office keyboard. Those also could not be operated with gloves as required in some facilities. It therefore makes great sense to use special keyboards, mice, trackballs and touch pads for these areas. Our range is large and meets everything that you need at your point of use.
Stainless steel keyboards
Stainless steel keyboards are the first choice if you require rugged input components and systems. With a high impact resistance level, they withstand the toughest operating conditions. Stainless steel is also very attractive as a material. Despite the material’s robustness, there are hardly any restrictions on individual designs.
Foil-covered keyboards are the most widely used input elements in device and apparatus construction. Whether they have a narrow operating area with two keys or are a complete user interface with a large number of keys and additional elements, their robust design, flat insertion depth and the large degree of freedom in terms of their shape continue to make them customers’ first choice.
Silicone pads are less expensive for mass production purposes in comparison to other keyboard technologies. They are reliable and offer almost unlimited opportunities for designs.
Silicone pads are made from highly elastic, toxin-free silicone rubber. They are created by moulding them from the basic materials that are fused together at a defined temperature and pressure. A special tool is necessary for each model. There is usually a conductive carbon pill for each key on the bottom side. The lower contact part is normally formed by meander-shaped conductors on a film or printed circuit board base.
Our devices have a variety of functions and a high degree of design value. Manufactured at our German headquarter, the keyboards are subjected to a strict quality process. The products are used in a wide variety of applications and have a large number of benefits: elegance, resistance, a long serviceable life and userfriendliness.
