Product Description

The KB-M2-EXT series is designed for use with any of our Universal Mount Monitors and combines a capacitive touchpad, a 102-key keyboard, and a 10-key numeric keypad in a rugged case. Twenty-four function keys and a Windows key provide added versatility. Cables are routed up through the base of the display, exiting the enclosure along with the video and touch screen cables.

The KB-M2-EXT series is designed to greatly reduce gaps and crevices which can contribute to microbe growth in the food industry and other applications. Elevated keys with embossed edges provide tactile feedback and excellent usability (keys can be felt and keystrokes recognized) yet are still easy to clean and extremely rugged.

The user may choose from black powder-coated carbon steel or stainless steel enclosures. These keyboards have a USB connection and include our 3-year warranty.

With our optional Workstation Assembly Service, the keyboard can be fully assembled and tested at our factory as part of an integrated Universal Mount Monitor workstation.
