New keyboard for extreme conditions

Devlin Electronics has launched KFM-106TP, a keyboard for tough industrial environments.


Devlin Electronics has launched KFM-106TP, a keyboard for tough industrial environments. It includes a full PC layout — function keys, a numeric pad, and an integrated trackball. An embossed membrane and short travel key switches minimize the risk of damage to this industrial keyboard while providing a positive tactile typing feel to users.

KFM-106TP is sealed to IP65 and NEMA4 when correctly fitted in a panel-mounted position or sealed enclosure. Each key has an estimated life of one million operations; the trackball boasts a similarly extended life. The unit is suited to areas of extreme temperature, able to operate between 0 °C and 50 °C. A high-quality membrane is impervious to chemicals found in industrial environments. Foreign-language and custom-legend variants are available.
