Interworld Electronics has released iKey's rugged AK-39 keyboard. The AK-39 keyboard is designed to be worn on the arm, and provides a simple, compact data-input solution that does not restrict the user's arm movements.
Constructed from high-impact, ABS plastic and industrial silicon rubber, the AK-39 is designed to meet MIL-461 standards and is intended for use in very harsh electro magnetic interference (EMI) environments. The AK-39 keyboard keys have a life expectance of 10 million cycles, require an actuation force of approximately 230g and provide tactile feedback with a mechanical snap.
The AK-39 keyboard’s small-footprint design features essential components for military and public safety applications, including an integrated Force Sensing ResistorTM (FSR), pointing device with left- and right-click functionality, and adjustable green LED backlighting that is also available in a night vision (NVIS) compatible configuration.
Designed with gloved users in mind, the AK-39 keyboard's snap-on faceplate eliminates accidental key strokes and can be easily removed to clean the pad.
