How to select our Keyboard to fit Your application
1. First under the heading "Keyboards" on the left, click on the type of keyboard that you are looking for - This shows photos of all of the keyboards, gives specific differences between the keyboards, and gives model numbers. When mounting on non-metal kiosks or enclosures the keyboards can be mounted on the surface and will protrude one inch thick above the mounting surface. An option for this type of mounting is an adapter plate to have the keyboards fit in the kiosk or enclosure, also shown on the Keyboards page. There are also drawings under the "Mounting" button detailing the different mountings.
2. Second when you click on type of keyboard you will see some samples - These sample key pattern overlays we have down for others. Please scroll down and see if you can find one that is the closest to fit your application. Under the other types of keyboards you can also see many more samples.
If you can find one close enough to fit your application, you can right click on that overlay, save the image, then either print it or bring it up in a graphics program, mark in your colors, logos, keys you want, keys you don't want, hot key requirements and fax it to us. We will use that marked up overlay to design your overlay and then e-mail it back to you for approval.
If you cannot find one close enough then below the 20 position and below the 83 and 90 position overlays there is a blank overlay. You can right click on the blank overlay, save the image, then either print it or bring it up in a graphics program, mark in your colors, logos, keys you want, keys you don't want, hot key requirements and fax it to us. We will use that marked up overlay to design your overlay and then e-mail it back to you for approval.
