BACKPLANE Systems has announce the release of InduKey's latest industrial keyboard featuring an integrated chip card reader, the TKS-105a-CKL-KGEH.
The keyboard's integrated GemPlus chip card reader has a serial interface designed for the GemEasy8000 and GemEasy300 touchless chip cards.
This style of keyboard is suitable for such functions as tracking user's working hours or restricting access to authorised people only.
The TKS-105a-CKL-KGEH has been developed with 105 high quality Omron short-travel keys, exhibiting an actuation force of 2.6N at a switch travel of 0.3mm, so the user will feel a "click" when pressing the button. In addition, the keyboard is available with a PS/2 interface.
The front cover is made from a special polyester foil developed for keyboard applications. The user-friendly multicoloured print on the foil is easily visible, differentiating the numeric, alphabetical and function keys.
In addition, the embossed key frames allow the user to easily locate keys. The dimensions of the keyboard are 480 x 182 x 34mm.
The keyboard casing features a sealed aluminium base-plate and foil surface that offers resistance to dust and liquid (IP65).
These high protection levels allow for operation in very dusty and wet environments such as manufacturing or medical applications.
