A RUGGED keypad that combines strength, versatility and beauty is available from human machine interfaces specialist EAO.
EAO's S.series keypad is suitable for any application that requires a key-entry control, including access control systems, industrial machinery, banking terminals, public telephones, kiosks and vending machines.
Available from Switches Plus Components , it is highly tactile and reassuring to use, yet extremely reliable and hard-wearing enough for the harshest of environments, such as outdoor and unsupervised locations.
The S.series keypad offers great design flexibility from a standard product and can be customised to suit the environment of the application.
The keys can be engraved with a range of standard symbols or ones specified by the customer. The keypad and individual keys can be illuminated in white, blue, red, yellow and green, or a combination of these colours; halo illumination around the keys is also a possibility.
It can be supplied with either a 12 or 16-key layout, and there is a choice of standard, telephone, or hexi-decimal II configurations. It is available in a natural finish or black; other colours area available based on minimum order quantities.
The metal-bodied S.series keypad features a front plate and anti-pull-off keys constructed from an ultra-tough material, Zamak, which guarantees a high level of impact-resistance.
It is sealed to IP67 against water and dust, and it will resist heat, shock and vibration to a very high level. It is tested for quality to four million operations and is certified according to the latest international standards.
