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 minimise cracks and crevices, which can trap dirt and debris.

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

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 IP65/IP66 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 IP65/IP66 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 IP65/IP66 certified. Familiar capacitive touchpad pointer can be used with thin gloves.
