FLEXIBLY designed, resistant to environmental influences and with an adjustable operating force: these are features of Mentor's new Dynasim keyboard, available from ERNI Australia .
Piezo keyboards do not have any moveable keys or contacts. When pressure is exerted on the keyboard's cover plate, piezo crystals give off a charge or voltage in proportion to the operating force.
An interface assumes control of a next-in-line application by transforming the signal impulses.
Typical areas of application include self-service vending machines, washing machines, lifts, aeronautical applications, industrial equipment or operating panels designed for industrial electronic applications.
