The KBIM2 is a industrial keyboard for rugged conditions. The KBIM2 provides a full QWERTY keyboard with an integral joystick. It is designed for industrial environments and is fully sealed. The joystick uses a patented opto-strain-gauge technology providing both an ergonomic and very durable pointing device. The joystick also incorporates a ëclick in the stick, further enhancing its ergonomics.
The joystick can be held between the fingers or used as a finger/thumb pad. The keys are hard wearing membrane type with tactile feedback.
Construction is die-cast aluminium, powder-coated and painted (standard) or stainless steel (optional). The joystick emulates a MicrosoftÆ Mouse. It connects to a serial or PS/2 port. The KBIM2 is ideally suited to operator interface requirements in the mining, marine, defence, petrochemical and food manufacturing industries as well as in medical operating theatres, process plants, flour mills, cement works and smelters.
