MICROKEY Elastomer Series keyboards let users in dimly lit environments see what they're typing on. Users can adjust the backlighting by pressing the FN and F7 keys simultaneously to choose one of several lighting levels. The backlight switch is sealed to resist dust, debris, and water. Three versions are available. The desktop version is a full-featured keyboard with a small footprint enclosure that has flip-up legs. Designers can modify an unenclosed version to meet customers' requirements. And the NEMA 4 version is enclosed in stainless steel and rated for harsh environments. Applications include: process-control equipment, medical equipment, and test and measurement instruments. Advanced Input Devices: Product Code 4207
