There are no nooks and crannies around keys so they can be just washed off if something is spilled on them. As standard they can be either completely silent or have an audible response.

Rugged rackmount keyboard that will not wear out, rated at 30,000,000 touches per year. EKI's keyboard detects your finger optically so there are no moving parts, and no domes to crack... these are not membrane or mechanical switch keyboards, you can stick a knife in the touch surface and not affect the life or operation. Keyboard can have permanent, semi-permanent key text overlays. Industrial keyboard that can I/O dual ascii (rs-232 or rs-422), USB or PS2 codes and sequences of codes. They are sealed so they can be easily washed off. EKI can make our custom keyboards and keypads fit your application.

With our keyboards that use PS2 output, there is no other connections required.

Our keyboards are also compact in size so they can be used on your lap, stand, or desk. We have models that can be mounted to a panel or machine. They can be fitted with a touch pad to one side, or in the middle of the keyboard.

And because they're optical we can make them to fit your application. You can have only the keys you want, your name, your colors, your organization's name, your department, and text (a function name). And Hot Keys, one key can input a URL, ctrl-C, etc., so if you're using a program that you press a sequence of keys on a regular basis, those sequences can be programmed into one key with the function name put on the key position.

Because there are no moving parts they will never wear out.

We also make them in any language. You send us the keys you want and we'll send you a keyboard.

USB Output is an extra charge, if you're using a mouse or a touch pad mouse you can plug it into our Y and have the keyboard and mouse connected to one USB port.
