Fit Anywhere: New panel top version
of HAND-TRAK--an optic mouse with no moving parts--can operate at any
With a proven technology that's resistant to sand, dirt, mud, and vibration, the new panel top version of HAND-TRAK™, an optical input device from ITAC Systems Inc., has attracted close looks from military contractors, says Jim McKinney, ITAC's VP of sales. McKinney asserts that HAND-TRAK is fit for harsh-environment operations, such as on a navy ship or a desert HumVee, thanks to its Gestural Input Engine™ design (http://rbi.ims.ca/4390-533), which is sealed, NEMA 4/IP66-compliant, and has no moving parts. HAND-TRAK can operate under high G forces and at any angle, McKinney adds, and can be attached with screws, double-sided tape, Velcro®, or placed loose on an existing control panel.
