In addition to office applications, industrial keyboards are increasingly common in HMI (Human Machine Interface) terminals, IoT (Internet of Things), POS (Point of Sale) devices, kiosks, medical carts and mobile devices.
Industrial keyboards are designed for operation in extreme conditions
Some keyboards used in areas open to the public can be “vandal-resistant.” Those used in high-risk industrial environments are often hardened so they are shock and explosion resistant. They are rugged and often protected against water, dust, dirt, oil and chemicals. They can be cleaned with industrial cleaners and chemicals.
Another special feature of industrial keyboards is that they are designed to be perfectly integrated into your work environment: open frame or built-in version, panel mount, rack mount, etc.
