Noritake will release a brand-new intelligent keypad module to provide rapid implementation of stable operation, adaptable sensitivity, multiple touches, an easily cleaned surface and simple interface to your Human Machine Interface (HMI) applications.
Simple and reliable key inputs are very important for machine operation. Our new keypad module works with gloves and water spillage conditions and is made with strong tempered glass by fine photo-etching technology, so there is no degradation over time.
The new keypad module supports automatic calibration and has the following selectable touch-detection methods:
- Conventional 4×4 key matrix scanning
- Command-based detection via serial communication
This allows for a smooth keypad replacement/integration process.
In addition, the keypad controller provides many switch activation options in combination with LED backlighting. General purpose input/output and serial interfaces allow for a direct interface to your product.
The video-clip below demonstrates just some of the keypad’s capabilities:
Please reach out to your local sales rep to see a live demo at your location. These demonstrations are great if you are interested in bringing your engineering and marketing teams together to consider the latest HMI technology.
