EAO’s Rugged Keypad Solutions Offer Seamless Integration Offered Through Marsh Electronics

EAO, a leader in vandal-resistant keypad and keyboard technology, specializes in building fully-customized, illuminated keypad solutions which are ready to integrate within any application. Using the S.series keypad that is constructed from ultra-tough Zamac, EAO can design a stylish and distinctive keypad solution tailor-made for applications within demanding and harsh environments. These keypads are well suited for security and access control applications, particularly within unsupervised areas. EAO’s standard products within the S.series range include 12 or 16 key keypads with a choice of telephone or hexadecimal II configurations. There are extensive possibilities for customization including ‘halo’ illumination.  This style presents the illumination around the character on each key in a range or combination of colors. A library of more than 20 different illuminated key characters are available as part of EAO’s standard offering. EAO also includes a character-design service if special markings are required as well as laser engraving facilities for non-illuminated keypads (subject to minimum order quantities). EAO’s innovative approach to individual projects makes use of flexible in-house development and manufacturing technologies. They will advise on issues such as environmental protection, mounting, cable and termination, end user-friendliness and tactile feel to ensure the best solution for each customer. S.series keypads offer superior performance and high-tactile feedback to provide a reassuring feel for the user. Sealed to IP67 standards against water, dust, and with their resistant to heat, shock and vibration, these units require minimal maintenance.  Therefore, they deliver excellent value in terms of lifecycle-cost benefits. EAO’s S.series is tested for lifetime quality of up to 4 million operations, certified according to the latest international standards, and is RoHS compliant.  eaokeypad.jpg
