BACKPLANE Systems Technology has announced the release of InduKey's M-I-T modular industrial keyboards, combining 85-key membrane keyboards and pointing devices.
This flexible keyboard family can adapt to users' individual needs, offering various design-in opportunities.
The devices in the modular keyboard range include compact 85-key membrane keyboards, silicon mouse buttons, capacitive touch pads, 38mm trackballs, 50mm trackballs and 17-key membrane numeric pads. Each device is available individually or in a keyboard pointing device combination.
The 85-key membrane keyboard has a tactile feel with 'snap' (when pressed) provided by foil embossing. This module features an integrated universal controller compatible with AT, PS/2 or USB interfaces.
The front sides of the mouse buttons and touch pad offer resistance to dust and water (IP65), while two trackball size options allow the user to choose between the 38mm trackball, with less depth, and the 50mm version, with more precise handling.
The keyboards can be integrated into rack and panel mount systems. They are available with holes on the front plate, for 19" rack mounting, or studs at the rear of the front plate, for panel mounting.
The keyboards are available in both plastic and aluminium enclosures and feature a front panel protection rating of IP65 (static) making this series suitable for a range of industrial applications.
