Low light conditions can often cause problems while trying to operate equipment or machinery. The touch of a wrong button can have hazardous results for employees and workflow.
To shine some light on the situation, Sydney based engineering firm AVisum has developed the Chameleon Trackball, a backlit panel mount industrial grade 50mm trackball. Encased in either a stainless steel or aluminium carrier plate, the palm-sized trackball device sources its illumination power directly from the mouse port.
With the option to select up to seven different colours either internally or remotely, several trackballs can be used simultaneously on the job. To accommodate all environments, the illumination intensity can be altered depending on the situation.
The Chameleon Trackball is suitable for use in studios to control lighting, naval control stations to monitor active equipment, industrial environments to indicate control status and even as part of security systems to track alarm status.
Monitoring and executing in poorly lit, dim or dark conditions has never been easier. Every touch of a button, flick of a switch or twist of a knob can be deftly executed and with the added confidence of a colour based system as an extra check and balance.
