iKey introduces intrinsically safe wireless keyboards
May 13, 2009 - iKey combinies the protection of intrinsic safety with the convenience of wireless in the DW-5K-IS and BT-87-TP-IS keyboards.

The products are Factory Mutual (FM)-approved to ensure that they meet the requirements for operation in hazardous locations. Each of iKey’s IS products is FM-approved for Class I, II, and III, Division I, Groups C, D, E, F and G.

The DW-5K-IS requires three AA batteries and a USB dongle isolated from the hazardous location, in the host computer, to operate. The DW-5K-IS features an integrated HulaPoint IITM pointing device and measures 14.97” x 6.61” x 1.91” (width-height-depth).

The BT-87-TP-IS is a Bluetooth-compatible, submersible keyboard that does not require a USB dongle if the host computer is also Bluetooth-compatible. It needs two AA batteries for power. The BT-87-TP-IS features an integrated touchpad and measures 12.01” x 7.75” x 2.03” (width-height-depth).

Both of iKey’s wireless IS keyboards have a 30-foot RF range. They are built with a sealed, industrial silicone rubber keypad and a rugged ABS polycarbonate case. Each of the keyboards meets NEMA 4X specifications, with the ability to withstand dirty, wet and corrosive environments.
