The Silicone Industrial Backlit Keyboard from Solidtek features a compact financial layout with 18 mm key pitch spacing and large centered backlit shine-through legends. The result is an overall keyboard width of just 15.0". The Function Keys have smaller (10 mm) keycaps to accommodate the compact layout. The "soft touch" rubberized surface is easy on the fingers and also keeps the keyboard firmly positioned. A full numeric keypad makes this keyboard ideal for stations where primarily numeric data is being entered.
This keyboard from Solidtek is designed for use in wet or dirty environments that would quickly render traditional keyboards inoperable or greatly shorten their life expectancy. It is fully enclosed in silicone and meets IP68 standards for protection from dust and moisture. Potential applications might include manufacturing equipment data input, medical or dental environments in which equipment must be sterilized, and any location where data entry is necessary but where moisture or dirt are prevalent. Key activation provides distinct tactile feedback that may be necessary where gloves might hide more subtle response. For locations with reduced lighting the backlit shine-through keycaps can increase accuracy and speed as well as reduce eye-strain. The backlighting can be set to two intensities or be turned off as desired.
The small footprint means that this keyboard can be deployed where space is limited, while still providing full functionality. The slightly compact key pitch will still work for most individuals but the slightly closer spacing needs to be considered when determining the suitability. Keying accuracy can be ensured for those with large hands if a two-fingered typing style that eliminates the chance of overshooting the targeted keys is adopted. For these reasons this keyboard is more suitable for short bursts of data or numeric entry than for periods of extended typing, exactly the type of use that is required in keyboard unfriendly environments.
- The compact financial layout and slightly reduced keypitch reduces reaching to the mouse by about 2" when compared to standard full-size keyboard. This reduces the reach outside of the Comfort Zone. Learn More About the Comfort Zone.
Reduced Risk of Wrist Extension
- With the low key profile of just 0.4", the Silicone Industrial Backlint Keyboard presents a low risk for those who "rest" the heel of their hands when keyboarding. Learn more about Wrist Extension
- Waterproof and Washable: The keyboard is sealed in 100% silicone, making it liquid and dust proof. Because it meets IP68 requirements it can also be safely washed or cleaned with soap or other non-petroleum based cleaners as needed.
- "Safe Cleaning" Feature: To ensure that input is not accidentally generated the keyboard features a full "power down" feature that disables all keyboard functions. This is a 2-button safety activation that requires both hands to activate - meaning it also cannot be turned on or off inadvertently. This feature means that the keyboard can be aggressively cleaned without any risk of data entry occuring.
- 2-Level Shine-through Backlighting: The blue backlighting can be set to one of two intensity levels or turned completely off via 3 keys above the numeric keypad.
- Sturdy, Rigid Construction: Unlike many washable keyboards on the market that can be flexible and flimsy, this washable keyboard by Solidtek features a heavy duty, rigid construction that offers a stable, solid feel when typing.
