Available now from Satcam , the QC-key is a USB keypad designed for use with Quick Circuit circuit board prototyping systems.

Computer controlled milling processes rely on the use of keyboard shortcuts (or a mouse) which involve multiple keystrokes to control the operation of the milling table. The QC-key USB keypad provides the critical machine controls as single keystrokes instead of the operator having to strike and hold down many keys to program one command.

Pre-programmed funtions of the QC-key USB keypad for computer controlled milling processes include:

  • spindle on/off
  • head up/down
  • jog
  • move
  • pause
  • stop
  • home position
  • park position
  • tool and material change.
There are also cursor keys and a numeric keypad available, as well as two uncommited keys for the user to determine their own functions. All keys are user programmable and re-programmable.

Measuring just 190mm x 90mm, the QC-key USB keypad is thin enough to slide away under a Quick Circuit's milling area. The kepad can also be fitted to an enclosure which elevates the interface to the standard 22º keyboard comfort angle.

Although the QC-key USB keypad was specifically designed for use with Quick Circuit circuit board prototyping systems, the simplicity and flexibility of the device makes it ideal for a wide range of applications.
