Product Description

The 42T series keyboard has been designed for operation in areas where the full functionality of a standard 101/102 PC keyboard is not required, but where an integral 50mm (2”) tracker ball is an advantage.

Language and connection variants make this a versatile and easily customisable product. A dual interface, when using PS2, allows engineering override if required.

Its stainless steel finish makes it ideal for tough applications and suitable for wash down areas.
