iKey rugged keyboard

iKey has unveiled its latest rugged keyboard, the BT-87-TP, which offers wireless connection using Bluetooth. The keyboard is fully sealed and meets NEMA 4X specifications that require resistance from water, dirt, dust, ice, and corrosives. Designed for industrial use, the silicone covering allows the device to be submerged and disinfected. A touchpad has been integrated into the ABS polycarbonate case to offer an alternative to a standard mouse.

The device is fairly compact, although thick, with measurements of roughly 12 inches by 7.75 inches by 2 inches. The internal Bluetooth module will allow connection with any Bluetooth-enabled computer or machine. The keyboard can either be mounted or carried and requires two AA batteries to power the transmitter. The BT-87-TP is available now, with pricing available on a quote basis from iKey.
