The new Kinesis Freestyle2 Keypad for PC is a convenient and ergonomic accessory for number crunchers who regularly need to perform arithmetic or other 10-key intensive input in an ergonomic manner. This new keypad seamlessly matches the low-profile design of the Freestyle2 keyboard and features the same proven low-force, quiet and tactile membrane key switches. By comparison, the Kinesis Low Force Tactile Numeric keypad is larger in all dimensions and uses a low-force tactile mechanical key switch with a longer operating life.
A 2-port USB 2.0 hub allows easy and convenient connection of peripherals such as a keyboard and mouse. Useful keys while performing numeric input of Tab and Backspace are included in the layout, and embedded actions to access Cut, Copy and Paste are also included. This product is an excellent, cost-effective means to add a high-quality external numeric keypad to your workstation.
Note: The Kinesis Freestyle2 Keypad for PC is compatible with most currently produced keyboards. However, a very small set of compact keyboards (such as the Goldtouch keyboard by Key Ovation, and the Scissor Switch Compact Keyboard by SolidTek) use the NumLock key instead of the Function (FN) key to toggle the embedded numeric keypad on and off. Most numeric keypads, including the Freestyle2 Keypad, are not compatible with these keyboards. Consider the Low Force Tactile Numeric Keypad (AC210USB-BLK) for use with these specific keyboards.
