IM1013 mouse from Electronic Keyboards detects a finger optically for quick and accurate positioning of the cursor.

IM1013 rugged industrial mouse from Electronic Keyboards Inc . (EKI) is suitable for a wide range of uses, including machine control, process control, and factory floors. Device detects a finger optically for quick and accurate positioning of the cursor. It features separate left and right buttons with audio feedback. For applications requiring only left button functions, an optional IM1013 is available without buttons. It uses a tap or double tap anywhere on the touch surface to input a left button function.

The technology allows no detection means on the touch surface so that even a severely damaged surface will not affect the life or operation of the mouse. The polycarbonate surface protects the electronics with no seals or rubber glands to wear out or crack; its relatively planar top surface is easy to wash off. Because the mouse operates optically, the touch surface allows use of gloves or one, two, or three fingers to position the cursor. Touch surface is 3 x 3.75 in. and can be ordered in custom colors or with special text keys at no additional charge. Top surface controls include drag and variable tracking speed. The device can stand alone; be surface mounted, horizontally or vertically; or flush mounted for NEMA 4 use.
