Our Industrial Monitor-Mounted Keyboards attach to the base of any Hope Industrial Universal Mount Monitor, with cables routed up through the display for a clean, uncluttered installation. The keyboards are specifically designed to minimize cracks and crevices, which can trap dirt and debris.

Like all components of the Hope Industrial Workstation, the keyboards meet NEMA 4/4X, IP65/IP66 standards and are 3rd-party certified. Each keyboard is available in either a stainless or black powder-coated carbon steel enclosure.

With our Workstation Assembly Service, the keyboard can be integrated and tested with other workstation components at the factory for quick installation in the field.

Three different keypad options are available:

  • Full-Travel Keypad with Touchpad – durable silicone overlay protects full-travel keys for easy touch-typing while maintaining wash-down NEMA 4/4X rating. Familiar capacitive touchpad pointer can be used with thin gloves.
  • Full-Travel Keypad with Button Pointer – durable silicone overlay protects full-travel keys for easy touch-typing while maintaining wash-down NEMA 4/4X rating. Button pointer can be used with any type of gloves and is unaffected by standing water or debris.
  • Short-Travel Keypad with Touchpad – durable polyester membrane resists chemicals and scratching, and provides a flat, easy-to-clean surface that does not trap dirt. Fully wash-down NEMA 4/4X certified. Familiar capacitive touchpad pointer can be used with thin gloves.
