Programmable Keyboard from EKI
NEW - Lifetime warrantee for EKI keyboards - Install it, Use it, Forget it. EKI has now been manufacturing keyboards for over ten years. EKI has thousands of keyboards working in the field with 1-2 failures per year, we have never charged for failure repair even out of the old one year warrantee, so we have now extended our one year warrantee to a lifetime warrantee. EKI keyboards do not wear out, the key text does not wear off, they are sealed to NEMA 4, they are rugged and are used in Alaska and off the coast of Alaska, to the deserts of UAE, to the humidity of LA, inside of refrigerators, shipboard, airborne, 2,500 in buses over 4 years no failures, in Kiosks, fast food, retail, and in factories around the world, and to the other extreme in hospitals, clear rooms and control rooms.
Key text, key colors, graphics, can be permanant or changed in the field
Input devices that can be mounted or stand alone
Standard output PS2, optional RS-232/422 or USB for an extra charge

NEMA 4 Field Programmable Keyboard Operation
Rear Switch 1 - Test - if an "s" is sent from rs-232 port it will dump emitters and detectors on, off, and difference. When the programmable keyboard is started with switch 1 on it enables setting the number of key sequences, so when started if you touch the prog key you will be able to program the default up to 8 key sequence; or touch any other key once, then the prog key, you will be able to program up to 4 key sequences; or touch any other key twice, then the prog key you will be able to program up to 8 key sequences; or touch any other key trice, then the prog key, you be able to program up to 16 key sequences. When finished switch 1 must be turn off, if left on then the next time you start the keyboard you will have to reset the sequence. If turned off then the sequence programmed prior will be used.
Rear Switch 2 - Program Mode can be select at at any time the programmable keyboard is running, when selected the Prog key LED will turn on. The programming sequence is to touch the key you want to program, then touch the keys in the sequence, then touch the Prog key. To turn off a location or key touch the key, and then the Prog key. To erase a programmed key, touch the key and then the Prog key twice. There is 1K of program space, 256 at 4 key sequences, 128 at 8, and 64 at 16. The 90 position has 90 positions at 4 keys per sequence, 90 positions at 8 keys per sequence and 64 positions at 16 keys per sequence. The 180 position has 180 positions at 4 keys per sequence, 128 positions at 8 keys per sequence and 64 positions at 16 keys per sequence.
Rear Switch 3 - Audible Key response Enable.
Rear Switch 4 - Repeat Key Enable.
Rear Switch 5 - Programmable Keyboard Clone - enables keyboard to keyboard sequence transfer, so after you get one keyboard programmed the way you want it you can clone others. The sending keyboard connects to the cloning keyboard via rs-232 port on the rear of the keyboard, special cable needed. The cloning sequence is to turn on switch 5 then touch the Prog key. Sending will continue until the Prog LED flashes, about 15 seconds, then turn off switch 5 and the LED will stop flashing. The receiving keyboard is just plugged into the rs-232 port, when the Prog key is touch on the sending keyboard the Prog key LED will come on on the receiving keyboard until the send is complete then the LED will flash ten times and resume normal operation.
Rear Switch 6 - Keypad enable, if the keyboard has an overlay that is dual marked with a numeric keypad on the right switch 6 will enable the keyboard to be selected via the PS2 port with the NUM Lock key.
Rear Switch 7 - Slave Mode Enable - When in slave mode the keyboard does not answer host requests. This is to allow multiple keyboard to operate on host where only one keyboard can answer host requests.
Rear Switch 8 - 2nd Overlay Enable - Switch 8 toggles between programmable overlay and a second overlay. When off keys are programmable in sequences of 4, 8, and 16. When on the second overlay is selected, if the Prog key is touched, the next key if programmed will output the program sequence, then revert back to the key in second overlay, e.g. if you program the R key for the word Richard, or the T key for your telephone number, while you are typing on the standard keyboard key text overlay, you can touch Prog, then R and Richard will appear on the display, and if you touch R again it will output a R.
Programmable keyboard can have up to 90 touch programmable positions, or up to 180 programmable positions
