APC Technology has launched the world’s first wireless industrial keyboard.
IKEY's rugged DW-5K introduces an innovative new dimension to the functionality of industrial peripherals.
Incorporating WirelessUSB technology for up to a 9m RF range, the DW-5K will even communicate with a pc inside a metal enclosure.
Standard features include an integrated, 3-button HulaPoint II pointing device, 24 function keys and a 10-key numeric pad.
In addition, the DW-5K's sealed, silicone keypad and robust ABS polycarbonate case ensure NEMA 4X protection from dust, water and corrosive liquids.
Because the DW-5K uses radio frequency signals, it is not susceptible to the line of sight issues associated with infrared keyboards.
It uses a USB dongle for plug and play ease, including automatic keyboard detection by the host computer.
The DW-5K comes with a manual binding feature that locks in the keyboard's signal, providing keystroke security, the ability to operate multiple wireless keyboards within the same environment and a barrier from interference with other wireless devices.
